Welcome to LULA

Lake Union Liveaboard Association

LULA was formed to protect and promote the Lake Union liveaboard community, encourage stewardship of the lake, and to provide a community forum for all liveaboards on Lake Union and Ship Canal, from Ballard Locks to Union Bay. Formed in 2009, LULA has been a strong voice for the liveaboard community and has been actively involved in both City and State regulatory endeavors that have helped to preserve and protect people and property in our community.
