Setting — A favorite stop for seasoned waterway travelers, the Yacht Basin lies on the north side of Eau Gallie Creek, along the shores of a harbor lined with oak trees and palms. Yachts and palatial homes share space here with a city park and old frame houses. Established in 1896, this site was once the terminus of a steamboat line, long before Flagler's railroad came to Florida. This marina retains the panache and camaraderie of long-established tradition.

Marina Notes — The marina itself offers clean, adequate facilities alongside Eau Gallie Boat Works. This full-service yard, under new management, claims the only marine railway between St. Augustine and Ft. Lauderdale. A mere glance will remind yachters of the old days, when wood meant brightwork and bronze was gleaming. The Boat Works provides more service, from scuppers to keel and stem to stern than many larger yards in the area. But like the harbor itself, it is small and compact, so schedule work well in advance. A visit here is worth the memories alone. (H) Bent pilings are the only evidence of Frances.

Notable — The marina, a gem by itself, is set in a haven for art and antiques. Stroll along Eau Gallie's tree-lined streets toward excellent art supply, frame and music shops, a fine health food store with adjoining cafe, a library overlooking the Indian River, and a museum that hosts national and local exhibits. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery (on Highland, not Fifth) displays the work of an artists' cooperative, including national award winners. Even the florist in the area shows work with a sense of fine art. Ballard Park, a short row across the creek, provides tennis courts, a launch ramp and covered picnic tables.
