Water Transportation

Target Industries

The Water Transportation cluster consists of companies involved in operating shipyards (which include facilities for the building, repair, alteration, and storage of watercraft that are typically intended for other than personal use, as well as specialized services for those vessels); providing support activities for marine cargo and passenger transportation (including the operation of port facilities, cargo handling, and navigational services). Shipbuilding and Repairing (NAICS 336611) is by far the largest, reflecting the presence of Eastern Shipbuilding Group. The industry accounts for 7 out of 10 jobs in the cluster regionally.
