El Primero, a landmark of US maritime history, is currently docked at Elochoman Marina. A remarkable (originally steam-powered) vessel, El Primero is the first yacht built on the west coast, and is a "palace afloat" built with two bathtubs when only 15% of San Francisco had running water. El Primero has hosted at least two US Presidents, including President Theodore Roosevelt and President William Howard Taft.
