Most recent update: December 24, 2014.


Cambridge Shipbuilders, Inc., was formed in 1941 by a group of local businessmen, occupying the space previously used by Cambridge Manufacturing Co. and George T. Johnson & Sons, a boat builder and marine railway: it closed after the war.  The yard was at the junction of Cambridge Creek with the Choptank River, where The Yacht Maintenance Company is today: see the site from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
