Shipbuilding History

Construction records of U.S. and Canadian shipbuilders and boatbuilders

The primary mission of this web site is to document the construction records of U.S. and Canadian shipbuilders and boatbuilders.  It also includes data on the construction of ships in U.S. and Canadian yards by type and provides some industry statistics.  Most of the data come from authoritative sources, but nobody's perfect and there are bound to be errors as well as omissions: please send corrections and additions to TimColton@aol.com.
