John Manly Ltd., New Westminster and Vancouver BC

(later known as West Coast Manly Shipyards)

Most recent update: February 10, 2015.


John Manly Ltd. was established after World War II in New Westminster but moved to Vancouver in 1972.  It was acquired by RivTow Marine in 1982, along with West Coast Salvage & Contracting and B. C. Marine Shipbuilders, and all four operations were merged, using B.C. Marine's Victoria Drive location.  The new company was called RivTow Industries, but was generally known as West Coast Manly Shipyards.  If anyone can add to this table, please send your data to timcolton@aol.com
