Macduff Shipyards

Begun in 1940, Macduff Shipyards was the brainchild of John Watt of Gardenstown, building clinker lifeboats and then post-war transitioning to fishing vessels. The shipyard in Macduff is a major employer, and biggest user of Macduff harbour.

Today the company operates three shipyards for repair and new construction of fishing vessels, including Buckie and Fraserburgh, and is able to cater to boats upto 80m in length.

More information can be found on the Macduff Shipyards website.
