Welcome to Jean Street Shipyard!


Established in 1843, two years prior to statehood, Jean Street Shipyard is the oldest existing shipyard in the Tampa Bay Area.  Located on the Hillsborough River, it is a fully functional shipyard and marina with wet slips, shower and laundry facilities, repairs, a self work yard, a ship’s store, and a full service boating supply store that has supplied boaters and boat builders for over 160 years.



Although we cater to wood boats, we offer a full range of products for every boater, from personal and recreational watercraft, to skiers, yachters, sport and commercial fishermen, and work boats.  We carry products and support for wood, fiberglass and aluminum hull repair and restoration.  We support and sell the products that we use ourselves and have given the test of time.  We strive to offer the best products and services for those who build boats, those who repair them, the do-it-yourselfer, and also those who simply enjoy boats and boating.




We have a full service wood shop, and metal fabrication shop, and offer full restoration services for antique boats and run-abouts, as well as classic era cars.



Although the Shipyard is equipped with the tools and equipment to meet the requirements of modern boating, enough of the historic ambiance of the Shipyard has been preserved so that driving through the gates of the Shipyard is a journey into the past.  Although Jean Street Shipyard works on boats from all over Florida, and beyond, and now supplies marine hardware and supplies to customers nationwide, we strive to still be just the neighborhood boatyard, still repairing Tampa’s boats, and supplying Tampa’s boaters with marine hardware and supplies.  We are extremely proud to tout a business reputation of providing over 160 years of service to our community.
