Most recent update: May 5, 2014.


Bellinger Shipyards was started by James F. Bellinger after WWII and sold to Jacksonville Shipyards in 1973 to be its commercial construction yard.  It was closed in 1992, when the other two yards in the group were closed, and was sold to M. D. Moody & Sons in 1994.  The shipyard was located at 13911 Atlantic Boulevard, on the north side of its bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com
