Upcoming Meeting Notice: Corn Island Shipyard

Time: October 11th, 2017 6:00 p.m.
Where: Corn Island Shipyard
Address: 9447 E State Rd 66, Grandview, IN 47615

Dinner & Tours
Please join us for this upcoming meeting and be sure to RSVP by October 9th with the number of people you will have attending and remember to bring a guest!

Corn Island will show a 300 Cubic Yard hydraulic Dump Scow that will launch next Thursday,
the 12th. After launch, it will be taken apart and each half will be loaded onto a
rail car destined for San Diego, CA. This is a similar vessel to the larger scows
built before at Corn Island but on a much smaller scale for mobility purposes.

We also will have a 340′ x 78′ x 19′-6″ Dredge Hull we are building for use on the
Gulf Coast. This barge will look similar to a deck barge with the exception of a
15′ tall hopper above deck to hold dredging spoil. At this point, painters are
starting interior painting and equipment crews are installing dredging equipment on
deck.

Over the last two decades, Corn Island Shipyard has quietly become the premier builder of custom barges and specialized marine structures. Since the launch of our first barge in 1991, CIS has strove to offer durable, high-quality products at a reasonable cost. We have achieved this goal by producing our vessels with a high degree of automation, employing a highly skilled workforce, and offering in-house design and engineering utilizing state of the industry 2D and 3D design programs. CIS has produced custom marine vessels for customers on both the East coast, West coast, Gulf coast, and most states on the inland waterway system.
Corn Island Shipyard specializes in the manufacture of custom designed products for both ocean service and inland waterway service. We produce vessels that are classed ABS as well as unclassed vessels based upon our customers’ requirements. CIS utilizes a high degree of automation and a highly skilled workforce to produce dependable, cost effective products for our customers in a timely manner. We currently have the capacity to build vessels up to 600 feet in length and 108 feet in width.
