Continuing the proud history of shipbuilding in Everett, Vigor Industrial companies today operate a nearly four-acre full service center for ship fabrication, repair and outfitting, with drydock, pier space and another plus: our people.
The facilities and people of our Everett shipyard have served the commercial and government marine communities for more than 60 years. First as Fishermen's Boat Shop, later as the Everett Shipyard, and today as a proud part of Vigor Industrial, the shipyard on Federal Avenue completes major projects for Washington State Ferries, the U.S. Navy, NOAA and the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as leading commercial fishing, transport, construction and towing companies. Projects range from small to large, from fireboats to ferries, from tug construction to $25 million overhauls.
Our thousand-ton drydock allows us to efficiently carry out complete top-to-bottom repairs for small to mid-sized ships. And through a partnership with the Port of Everett, we can expand our dedicated pier space to perform topside repairs on ships and floating equipment of virtually any size.
We operate under a U.S. Navy approved ISO 9001-2008 quality assurance program. And we're proud to help maintain fleet readiness for aircraft carriers, destroyers and more at the Navy's most modern facility, Naval Station Everett, just a thousand feet away.
