Aaron Bennett established the Eau Gallie Yacht Basin in 1896. But even before that the basin was the terminus of a steamboat line in the days before the railroad reached Eau Gallie.

Phillip David Barbour, a native of Louisville, KY. was the man who really developed the Yacht basin, beginning about 1920.

He established the Eau Gallie boat concern and made improvements to the harbor. During the period of Barbour's ownership, yachtsmen from all over the country kept their yachts here and the basin became renown in yachting circles.
