Liftboats Built in U.S. Shipyards

Most recent update: June 9, 2015.


The construction of liftboats is probably the least visible sector of the U.S. shipbuilding industry, but the liftboat fleet plays a key role in the offshore industry.  The table below lists 309 liftboats built in U.S. shipyards, by shipbuilder and hull number.  There are bound to be many omissions from this table: if anyone can fill a gap or correct an error, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
