Nashville Bridge, Nashville TN (Boats)
(later Trinity Industries, Nashville)
Most recent update: July 15, 2012.
Nashville Bridge Company, (NABRICO), was originally a bridge builder, founded in the 1890s. It was converted to shipbuilding in 1915 and, by the 1960s, it was said to be the world's largest builder of inland barges. George Steinbrenner bought it in 1969 and added a second yard in Ashland City in 1977: he sold the company to Trinity Marine Group in 1995. Trinity closed the Nashville yard in 1996, when the City of Nashville decided that the downtown shipyard property would be more valuable to the community as a stadium. This table, which is still far from complete, lists its record of construction of self-propelled vessels: click here to go to the table that lists its construction of barges. Thanks to Ingo Steller for his contribution to this table.
