Jeffersonville Boat & Machine Company, Jeffersonville IN

(Barge Construction, 2013-Present)

Most recent update: June 19, 2016.


Jeffersonville Boat & Machine Company, known as JeffBoat, was organized in 1938 by American Barge Line, (ABL), utilizing the site once occupied by M. A. Sweeney & Brothers, which had closed in 1920.  In 1942, the Navy condemned the neighboring Howard Shipyard & Dock Company, which had closed in 1940, and leased it to JeffBoat for the duration of the war, in which it was a major builder of LSTs, with employment peaking at 13,000.  In 1947, ABL bought the Howard portion of the yard from the Navy and formally merged it with JeffBoat, creating what would become the leading inland builder of towboats and barges that it still is today.  Visit the shipyard at www.jeffboat.com and see it from the air on Google here.  An astonishing number of ships, boats and barges have been built on this site - a record that requires eight web pages for full documentation.  Note that the yard was closed during the downturn from 1985 through 1989.  Click on one of the links below to go to one of the other seven pages.
