Our Story


Hingham Launch History

At the height of World War II, America was building ships at record speeds. Workers at the Hingham Shipyard built and launched 227 warships in just three and a half years, surpassing the Navy's expectations and literally changing the course of world history.

100 Destroyer Escort ships built here guarded thousands of convoys across the Atlantic. The Allies’ success in the famed D-Day invasions would have been unimaginable without the 127 Landing Ship Tanks that were also built and launched from our site.
