Detyens Shipyards, Inc.


Detyens Shipyards, a family-owned and operated company has successfully transitioned from a small shipyard with wooden piers and wooden docks to one of the United States largest commercial shipyards. “We took over the Charleston Naval Shipyard when it was closed by the DOD back in 1995. It was like going from the county fair (our old shipyard) to Disney World” says Loy Stewart, Jr., president of DSI. “We were basically handed the keys, a lease agreement and told good luck, now in 2017 we have just come away from our most successful year in our 55 year history and we look forward to continuing our mission to be the best commercial repair shipyard in the country. Working with operators from across the globe has been enjoyable and we are thankful that they have trusted us to do their emergency & scheduled maintenance repair work. We are busy building a family atmosphere and a tradition of quality workmanship at a reasonable price. We are focused on safety and an exceptional dry docking experience for our customers. We strive to ensure their visit to our one-stop shipyard facility will be satisfying.” For more information about Detyens Shipyards, please visit or contact Bradley Kerr Director of Sales & Marketing at
