Bayonne Drydock & Repair

About Us

Bayonne Drydock is a full service shipyard offering drydocking and repair services for a variety of vessels ranging in size from tugboats to major ocean-going ships.  It operates the largest drydock in the Northeast United States.
Bayonne Dry Dock’s facilities include a graving dock measuring 1,092 by 148 feet (332 by 45 meters), with a dock floor load capacity of 99,000 tons. The shipyard has recently added a 1,280 tonne mobile boat hauler (MBH) to the facility and, with a laydown area of approximately 4 acres, can now provide full drydocking services to 8 additional vessels at any given time.
The drydock in Bayonne was originally used as a Naval Drydock from 1942-1967 and was taken over by the US Army in 1967. Military Ocean Terminal at Bayonne (MOTBY) was in operation for several years before eventually becoming Bayonne Drydock in 1997. The company has been in business for over 25 years.
