East Isle Shipyard

Home to our high quality tug-building facility.

Located near Georgetown, PEI, on Canada’s Atlantic Coast, East Isle Shipyard is Irving Shipbuilding Inc.’s (ISI) main tug-building facility. Here you’ll find the quality facilities, advanced technology and skilled labour force that have made our Z-Drive Reverse Tractor Tugs a worldwide success story.

East Isle Shipyard is easily accessible from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Enjoy the advantages of complete undercover construction at these modernized facilities. By the time the tugs leave the module shop, they are fully outfitted and painted.

At East Isle Shipyard, you will benefit from our attention to quality throughout the production process. This is a result of the pride in workmanship that is evident in all the skilled tradesmen who work in the yard and our long-standing ISO 9001:2000 accreditation.

All our facilities are certified members of ISPS and operate 365 days a year.
