The Great Lakes Group

New Construction

Experienced in small to medium size ocean-going, lake and river vessel and barge construction, the Shipyard can meet the most challenging design and construction requirements in a timely and effective manner. We build a variety of top quality vessels in steel and aluminum and lead in innovative marine technologies. We can build to a customer’s plans or can provide a custom design. In conjunction with major naval architects, we have developed unique special purpose designs. The well-known “Z-Class tugs were designed and built for our fleet and were one of the earliest ASD’s introduced into the U.S. market. The latest design, the “HandySize” class tugs are ideal for multi-purpose use and have been competitive in both the domestic and international markets.
