Industrial Shipping Co., Ltd., Mahone Bay NS

Most recent update: February 9, 2015.


Industrial Shipping was a manufacturer of small motor boats that stepped up to building TANAC tugs for the war effort.  After the war, it returned to the small boat market, becoming the Mahone Bay Plycraft Company and later PaceShip.  It closed in 1981.  The facility on Main Street, in Mahone Bay, is still there, but no longer builds boats: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com  Let's keep it to boats that are over 32 feet long, because we know that they built hundreds, maybe thousands, of boats that were smaller than that.
