Large Deck Barges Built in the U.S. Since WWII

Most recent update: December 28, 2018.


This table attempts to list all the large deck barges built in U.S. shipyards since WWII, listed by shipbuilder and hull number, "large" being defined as longer than about 300 feet.  There are three basic types: container barges (C in the "Type" column), most of which are designed to carry containers above deck; roll-on/roll-off barges (R), most of which have a ramp to allow trailers to be carried either on deck or in a superstructure; and basic deck barges (D), most of which are single-deck barges strengthened to carry construction equipment, heavy lifts or project cargoes.  The table may be missing some of the older barges and at the same time it may include some older barges that are now out of service: its reliability is also complicated by conversion and/or jumboization.  If anyone sees any errors or omissions, please send your input to me at timcolton@aol.com
