Warren Boat Yard, Warren RI

Most recent update: January 2, 2015.


As far as I can tell from the sparse records, the Warren Boat Yard which was active during WWII was established in 1939 on the site of Alder Manufacturing: one of the founders of Warren BY was Ernest E. Alder, of Alder Manufacturing, who, earlier in his career, had been the Wood Superintendent at Herreshoff Manufacturing.  Warren Boat Yard closed after the war and its entire output appears to have been the six coastal transports listed below.  If anyone can tell me where it was located, or add to the table below, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com
