Shelburne ship repair is another Irving yard ( Halifax Shipyard, St John Shipbuilding (NB), and East Isle (PEI) are the Others). The Yard is currently the home of the Pearl Mist. Built at Halifax Shipyards, her delivery was refused by the Pearl Seas Cruises for defecnies, inculding not meeting standards of various vessel Licencing Authorities, including the USCG and the Flag State (Marshal Islands). The Flag state issues are contractual and apparently trivial to resolve. The USCG Issues are outside the contract, and actully require the vessel to be turned over and crewed by the owner prior to certification.
The yard recently began several million in repairs and upgrades, including a new Marine Railway seen here:
