McKenzie Barge & Derrick Co., Ltd., North Vancouver BC

Most recent update: February 10, 2015.


McKenzie Barge & Derrick established its yard in North Vancouver in 1932, as a base for its marine construction activities.  It's still going as a repair facility, known since about 1970 as McKenzie Barge & Marine Ways, but it has not built a new vessel since 1989.  The yard is located on Dollarton Highway: see it from the air on Google here.  Please send any additions or corrections to the table to timcolton@aol.com
