Berkeley, San Diego Maritime Museum
Columbia District
Take a Virtual Tour of the Berkeley The Berkeley is an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay. A California State Historic Landmark, and a National Historic Landmark. She is, in a word, "irreplaceable." Berkeley’s importance to the Maritime Museum cannot be overstated. Aboard the vessel are the museum's offices, a major maritime research library, workshop, model shop, the museum store, special events venue with room for 800 guests, and numerous dry storage and archive areas. The ferryboat's lower deck and main deck contain many important exhibits and displays, including her fully restored triple expansion steam engine, which, although no longer steam- operated, today performs for visitors with the aid of hydraulics 1907 and compressed air. Berkeley's engine room is unique worldwide. Click here for information about the current art exhibits you can see on the Berkeley. During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake Berkeley carried thousands of survivors to safety. Her captain and crew, not knowing the fate of their own families, worked night and day to help victims escape the burning shores of San Francisco. Their unwavering and unselfish efforts saved many, many lives. The upper deck of the ferryboat has played host to thousands of weddings, corporate and other special events since her arrival in San Diego in 1973. Berkeley has a unique historical and architectural significance that is reminiscent of the Victorian Age. She is the finest example of a 19th century ferryboat afloat. The Berkeley’s hull underwent a revolutionary hull restoration process during the spring of 2003 that is expected to last for 50 years and may serve as the benchmark for the preservation of historic iron and steel hulled ships around the world.
