Wm. E. John & Associates, Rye NY

(later Milton Point Shipyard)

Most recent update: December 30, 2014.


This yard was started by a well-known racing boat designer, Wm. Edgar John, at the outset of WWII: it continued after the war under the name Milton Point Shipyard but closed in the 1960s.  The yard was located on the north side of the Milton Channel, at the foot of Hewlett Avenue: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail your info to me at timcolton@aol.com.
