Detyens Shipyards, Inc., a staple in Charleston’s maritime community since 1962, took delivery of a newly constructed floating drydock on December 11, 2015.

The new 400’ x 108’ floating drydock, which will eventually replace Detyens’ existing floating drydock, was built by Corn Island Shipyard in Indiana.

The drydock was pushed down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers by Excell Marine’s inland tug boat, the Arthur E Snider. McAllister Towing and Transportation’s ocean towing tug boat, the Eileen McAllister took over the tow in New Orleans for delivery to Detyens Shipyards’ Cooper River facility.
