Willamette River moorages are located on the Willamette River south of downtown Portland and near the Sellwood Bridge on both banks of the Willamette River.  The views tend to be characterized by nature, trees and the Sellwood Bridge.  The Willamette River features a wide channel here and is perfect for watersports of all kinds. There is a sailing school nearby and occasionally you may catch a regatta.  It is a busy recreational boat waterway, but also a beautiful place to kayak, paddle, canoe, row, etc.  There is ample space for waterskiing, wake boarding and tubing (away from marinas), as well as fishing.  Floating homes for sale on the Willamette River are in one of three moorages.

There is one moorage located on the Macadam Avenue side (west bank), the Macadam Bay Club, and two are located on the Sellwood neighborhood side (east bank), the Oregon Yacht Club and the Portland Rowing Club.  All three moorages are located within a 10-minute drive of downtown Portland.  Floating homes for sale on the Willamette River tend to be few because there are not many there, in comparison to other areas of Portland.  Because of their proximity to downtown Portland and Sellwood, walkability scores are generally high. Biking trails offer connectivity to the city.  Every urban amenity can be had within a short drive.  There are restaurants and things to do near all of them, including nearby Oaks Park (an amusement park featuring rides and a roller coaster). Because of the landscape, these moorages are more sheltered from the winter winds than the moorages on NE Marine Drive.
