For over a century, the United States Coast Guard Yard has built, repaired and renovated ships in Baltimore, Maryland, for the U. S. Coast Guard. It is the Service’s sole shipbuilding and major repair facility, and an essential part of the Coast Guard’s core industrial base and fleet support operation.
The Centennial history of the Coast Guard Yard heralds scores of success stories and recognizes the shipyard’s vital contributions to the United States Coast Guard during the past 100 years.
The Coast Guard Yard celebrated its Centennial in 1999 and recognized the shipyard’s outstanding “Service to the Fleet” since being founded on the shores of south Baltimore in April, 1899. To herald this historical accomplishment within the Coast Guard community and to celebrate in the company of other corporate centenarians, the Yard’s Centennial focused customer attention on the shipyard’s commitment to maritime excellence, honored the Yard’s past and present work force and sought public recognition of the accomplishment and goals of the Coast Guard’s only shipyard.
