Smith & Williams, Salisbury MD

Most recent update: January 25, 2015.


Smith & Williams was a builder and repairer of wooden yachts and fishing boats.  It appears to have been active throughout the first three decades of the 20th century, but I cannot determine when it opened and when it closed.  Or who Messrs. Smith and Williams were.  The boats in the table below appear to me to have been the products of Smith & Williams, but some may have been built elsewhere.  The one thing I am pretty sure of here is that their yard was where Roberts Shipyard was from 1953 thru 1980 and where Chesapeake Shipbuilding is today - see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can answer my questions or improve the accuracy and completeness of the table below, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com
