Foss Shipyard, Rainier OR and Seattle WA

Most recent update: August 21, 2018.


Over the years, Foss has operated several small shipyards.  In recent times, their shipyard in Rainier, which they acquired from Brix Maritime in 1977, has been their primary repair yard: it was expanded in 2002 to build tugboats.  Foss closed this yard, however, in 2018.  Still active is their shipyard in Seattle, which is now their primary repair yard and which recently built two fire boats.
