We don't give you a lot of over- blown promises at Savannah Ship- yard. But we can supply some pretty talented people.

Like Tommy Brisendine. Who's just about the best sheet metal man going.

He can rebuild a ship's ventilators better than new. And when it comes to renewing lifeboat plates he's the best.

So now you understand why we're proud of our sheet metal shop.

But that's not all we're proud of.

We've got unbeatable electrical and carpentry shops, 50-ton cranes, drydock and such.

And most important, probably the hardest-working, most gung-ho workers in the business.

What's nice is you get it all for prices less than the "fat cat" yards.


Shipyard Company.

We do scheduled drydocking, voyage repairs, and major conversions.

And we do them very well.
