Associated Shipbuilders, Seattle WA

Most recent update: January 12, 2015.


Associated Shipbuilders, Inc., was established at the outset of the war with two separate shipyards.  The yard on Lake Union built yard minesweepers, (YMS), while the yard on Harbor Island built ocean minesweepers, (AM) and yard craft.  This table records the production of the Lake Union shipyard.  The company was partly owned by Puget Sound Bridge & Dredging Company and Associated's Harbor Island yard was absorbed into that company in 1944.  See the table for the Harbor Island yard here.  The exact location of the Lake Union yard is not clear.
