Detyens Shipyards Inc. Located in the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina, is busy building a tradition of quality workmanship at a reasonable price.
Detyens’ main yard, located on the Cooper River in Charleston, was originally a U.S. Naval shipyard. In 1996 the Navy closed their base and Detyens, which had been operating at a smaller shipyard on the Wando River in Mt. Pleasant, SC, saw an opportunity.
The addition of the Cooper River facility now gives Detyens the ability to provide larger commercial ship owners with quality dry-docking experience. The facility houses 33 marine and industrial companies that serve the fast growing port of Charleston, providing an excellent infrastructure to support the marine industrial base.
