Percy & Small, Bath ME

Most recent update: April 13, 2016.


Percy & Small was started in 1894 by Samuel R. Percy Jr. and Frank A. Small, and closed in 1920.  The yard was on Washington Street, near Marshall Street: the Maine Maritime Museum is there now and has preserved much of the old yard, including a stylized mock-up of the framing of the 6-master Wyoming.  This is something not to be missed if you are in the area.  See it from the air on Google here.  The table below lists 44 of the 45 vessels that Percy & Small built: can anyone identify the missing hull? And if anyone has any data to add, please send it to timcolton@aol.com.
