Trident Yachts, Tampa FL

(later WestShip World Yachts and RiverHawk Marine)

Most recent update: August 3, 2015.


This yard was established in 1996, as Trident Yachts, but failed in 2000 and was taken over by WestShip World Yachts, a yacht marketing company.  It closed again in 2008, when the yacht market collapsed, and was acquired by RiverHawk Fast Sea Frames, which built a few specialized fast patrol craft before failing.  In 2015 it was bought by its across-the-street neighbor, Lazzara Yachts, and is now back in business.  See the shipyard from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to this table, please email your data to timcolton@aol.com.
