Vessels Built by Celtic Shipyards Ltd.

compiled by John M. MacFarlane 2015

"B.C. Packers bought Deering Island, until 1985 known commonly as Mud Island, and Celtic Island to form the Celtic Shipyards. The cannery was closed and converted to net storage. Subsequent developments included a marine slipway to service larger vessels. Eventually, the shipyard came to be the largest on the coast for servicing wooden boats and it handled all of the B.C. Packers fleet." (from Illustrated Vancouver) 16 matches. 1 page. Max 50 records per page.
