Yager Marine


Yager Marine builds barges of all types – crane barges, dock barges, deck barges and dry docks.

Our experienced designers and craftsmen work in a modern ship-building facility on the Ohio River in Owensboro Ky. We have constructed scores of barges for more than 40 organizations.

Our expertise in building barges caries over to our work in barge repair. Choose Yager Marine to get your damaged barge back in service.

In addition, we offer barge rental and leasing programs to meet your either long or short-term and long-term needs.

Our marine facility is located in Owensboro, KY.  By water we are located on the Ohio River at mile marker 752.6.  By land our address is 5001 Hwy 2830, Owensboro KY  42303.

Yager Marine conducts barge building and repair services in a state-of-the-art facility covering nearly 60,000 square feet on the bank of the Ohio River in Owensboro, Ky.

Our shipyard building was expanded to its current size in 2012 and outfitted with two complete manufacturing lines using advanced technologies that enable us to fabricate more parts with increased efficiency. Our investment in sophisticated equipment gives us the ability to construct and repair barges with a quick turnaround time.

With an overhead crane rail of more than 795 feet, we are able to construct barges up to 260 feet in length and 72 feet in width. Multiple 10-ton magnet-duty cranes are equipped with plate-handling spreader beams. A 32-ton overhead crane has an 80-foot span and lifting height of 42 feet. An advanced automated, one-sided welding system with plate positioning input and output conveyors eliminates the need to turn over plates.

In short, Yager Marine has the capability to build and repair barges of highest quality in a streamlined, cost-effective manner.
