Luders Marine, Stamford CT

Most recent update: November 15, 2014.


Luders Marine Construction was founded in 1908, in Byram CT, but moved in 1912 to Harbor Drive, in Stamford Harbor.  It became well known for its fine custom-built yachts, but closed in 1968.  The yard is now operated by Brewer Yacht Haven Marina: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail timcolton@aol.com.
