Tacoma Boatbuilding, Tacoma WA

Most recent update: October 15, 2020.


Tacoma Boat was established in 1926 and built many boats in WWII.  It grew rapidly in the 70s and early 80s but got into difficulty with several large government contracts and filed for Chapter 11 protection in 1985.  It emerged from bankruptcy in 1986 but could not recover and closed in 1992.  The facility, which was at 1840 Marine View Drive, was liquidated in 1998.  See the site from the air on Google here.
