They were a boat building company located in Vancouver BC. It started on Coal Harbour about 1897. William Turner, Jr., was a boat builder who operated Turner's Boat Works with his father, William Harold Turner, Sr. (1867-1951). Turner, Sr. came to Canada in 1888 and established Turner's Boat Works in 1908. He retired in 1942, his son then operated the shipyard. In 1943, a fire destroyed the shipyard, but it was rebuilt and continued to operate until 1958, when the younger Turner retired.46 matches. 1 page. Max 50 records per page.
