T.W.L. Enterprises, Trinity NL

(formerly Trinity Shipbuilders and the Vokey family shipyard)

Most recent update: February 15, 2015.


This shipyard was started by Henry T. Vokey, when he moved to Trinity from Little Harbour in about 1963.  Until about 1986, most of the boats were contracted under Henry Vokey's name, although a few were contracted by other members of the family.  In 1986, Henry Vokey organized Trinity Shipbuilders and from then on, most, but not all, of the boats were contracted under that name.  Trinity Shipbuilders failed in 1992 but in 1997 it was reactivated by Wilson Vokey, as T.W.L. Enterprises.  This prolific yard finally closed in 2005 and the facilities on Fisher Cove have now been demolished.  If you have any additions and/or corrections to this complex saga, or to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
