At a glance

The Lunenburg Shipyard Alliance was forged from Nova Scotia’s most experiences marine businesses.

Covey Island Boatworks, builders of custom composite yachts for the world since 1979; Lunenburg Industrial Foundry & Engineering, a world famous foundry since 1891; and Snyder’s Shipyard, builders of traditional wooden vessels since 1944, have aligned to offer the best combination of Nova Scotia’s boat-building skill and craftsmanship.

With over two centuries of combined marine experience, our team offers three marine railways and a travel lift to haul out, repair, service or build vessels up to 1,600 tonnes.

The team has worked together over the years on many projects including the award – winning total restoration of the Bristol Channel pilot cutter Marguerite T and most recently the restoration of Canada’s iconic sailing ambassador Bluenose II using an innovative combination of modern and traditional techniques to create a stronger, safer vessel to ABS standards.
