An integral part of shipbuilding on the River Clyde since 1903

We have been an integral part of shipbuilding on the River Clyde since 1903 and are now entering an exciting stage in our development as a world leader in marine engineering technology.

About Us

Ferguson Marine has been through significant change in recent years, culminating in the previous business entering Administration in August 2019. The shipyard was taken into public ownership by the Scottish Government in December 2019 and now trades as Ferguson Marine (Port Glasgow) Limited.

The focus of the organisation following nationalisation is completion of the two ferries currently being built. It will also ensure work continues towards delivery of the other vessels currently under construction and securing a sustainable future for the business.

Development over the last few years includes:

  • Appointment of a Board of Directors
  • Launch of Air Cushioned Barge
  • MV Glen Sannox remedial dry dock works
  • Recruitment of a record number of 25 young people with modern apprenticeships
  • Launch of an innovative 26-metre workboat for Scotland’s fish farming sector 
  • Creation of over 100 jobs in Inverclyde
