Vigor Tacoma, Tacoma WA

(formerly Marine Industries Northwest)

Most recent update: April 1, 2016.


Marine Industries Northwest, Inc., (MINI), was established in 1976 by Don Slater, a Michigan naval architect.  He retired and sold the company to Vigor Industrial in 2010.  It is basically a repair yard, with a haulout and a floating dry-dock, but it also has a limited record as a boatbuilder.  The yard is on East F Street in Tacoma's Middle Waterway, adjoining the MSRC yard: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
