WESTPORT ORANGE SHIPYARD
Our shipyard was once the location of a small fabrication yard operated by Consolidated Steel Corporation. In 1940, to meet the immediate needs because of the imminent threat of World War II, Consolidated was commissioned by the U.S. Navy to expand the shipyard. Our legacy of craftsmanship and ingenuity is the everlasting stamp for over 80 years with thousands of man-hours dedicated to satisfy our commercial marine solutions. Westport Orange Shipyard has the capacity and the experience to service multiple projects at the same time from our ground and floating facilities. We can deliver a world class product that is guaranteed to last and perform as expected by our demanding clients and the endurance their services require, from the regular boat, barge and marine module maintenance and repairs to the building of custom design and technologically advanced systems that perform beyond today’s requirements- because your bottom line rules ours.
Over the last decade the Orange shipyard produced 12 Fletcher-class destroyers, 27 Gearing-class destroyers and 110 destroyer escorts. This was made possible through the hard work and dedication of more than 20,000 industrious individuals.
The facility has changed ownership several times since then, most recently acquired by Westport Marine Holdings, LLC, on Oct. 4, 2014. Although previous owners have come and gone, Westport is here to stay. We are working hard every day to enrich the legacy of this proud shipyard!
