Berg Shipyard, Blaine WA

Most recent update: September 24, 2018.


Berg Shipyard was started in 1949 by Andrew Berg and his son Carl, but the MVUS lists at least 13 boats built in Blaine before 1949, so there must have been another boatbuilder there before the Bergs.  The business was sold to Westman Marine in 1979 and continues today in the repair business.  The yard is at the foot of McMillan Avenue in Blaine Harbor: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
