A slipway was first hewn out of the rocks of Crinan by Blair Wilson in 1961. In those days the yard carried out repairs and built small ferries for the island trade. It is currently run by John and Lindsay Dunlop, Derek Smart as Manager and under family ownership. Nowadays most of its work is servicing commercial craft, fish farm vessels and pleasure craft/yachts etc.
The boatyard has a conscientious workforce of more than 20, and has two slipways and is able to accommodate vessels of up to 80 feet and a 10 feet draught.
