Sadakichi Yamanaka established the Yamanaka Boat Works on the Phoenix Cannery site in Steveston BC. Yamanaka had previously worked for Tomiichi Mukai. The yard closed during the Second World War. It was re–opened at the J.H. Todd & Sons cannery. In 1979 the company (now operated by Oscar Yamanaka) was moved to Delta BC.

Author’s Note: This is a partial list (work in progress).

Note to Reader: Vessel names containing Roman numerals in parentheses (e.g. Floater (II)) indicates more than one vessel in the database with the same name. The numerals in parentheses are NOT part of the vessel name but are used to distinguish one vessel from another in the database.


Vessel Images: Can you help us fill gaps in the vessel images in the database? If you have pictures of missing vessels that you have taken and would be willing to contribute to the database to make it more complete all our users would be very grateful. Please send them to admin(at)nauticapedia.ca
