The Deserted Boatyard is located at Vice Port and is an integral part of the region. No boats are docked inside the boatyard, thus giving an impression of abandonment.
Players have implied that the boatyard may actually be out of order. Moreover, one of the entrances to the Ghost World in the game is located inside the boatyards. To access the world, players have to run against the boxes kept in the boatyard. There's also an office in the boatyard, which seemingly is deserted. There is a small safe kept inside the office, which as been broken into and looted.
Therefore, players have theorized that the office may have been robbed by someone in the past. These strange traits have led players to believe in something mysterious in the region.
