As previously noted, since the revival of Davie Shipyard in late 2012 under new ownership, we have had many notable achievements including:

  • Reaching peak employment of over 1,000 employees making Davie by far the largest shipbuilding employer in Canada
  • Delivery of Hull 717 which is the largest and most complex vessel delivered in Canada in over 25 years
  • Commencement of construction of two dual fuel ferries, the first LNG passenger vessels to be built in North America
  • Completion of the first Canadian Coast Guard refit under the new ownership•Being named ‘North American Shipyard of the Year’ by Lloyd’s List North American Maritime Awards 2015

In addition to the above achievements, we are excited to be adding to the list the expansion of our supplier base into Newfoundland & Labrador along with the pursuit of several opportunities for new ship construction that are available within the province. We at Davie believe not only that Canadian based solutions to our domestic shipbuilding needs are possible, but also that these solutions can involve a large local content, especially in a marine focused province such as Newfoundland and Labrador.
