Facilities & Capabilities

Spanning more than 550 acres, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, our shipyard sits on 2.5 miles of waterfront property along the James River. Our facilities range from manufacturing facilities (we have our own Foundry and Machine Shop) to dry docks and piers. In the latest expansion, we added “Big Blue,” a gantry crane capable of lifting 1,050 metric tons – the equivalent of two and a half Boeing 747’s. The crane is one of the largest in the Western Hemisphere.
