Company Details

A.F. Theriault & Son Ltd. is one of the largest privately owned shipyards in Canada’s Atlantic Region. This family business was founded in 1938 in an era where wooden three-masted sailing ships ruled the seas. Today, state of the art fishing boats, pleasure yachts and catamarans, combine old techniques with the latest trends and technologies.

Commercial and recreational vessels with lengths up to 130′ demonstrate, through their obvious quality and handling performance, a pride in workmanship. The 150+ workers at the shipyard are well-trained as professional boatbuilders. The key to the success of A.F. Theriault & Son Ltd. is its human resources.

A strong emphasis is placed on the construction, safety and stability of their vessels in accordance with rulings passed by Transport Canada, ABS, Lloyds and Det Norske Veritas.
