Shipyard & Marine Industry Building Kits

Shipyards around the world trust SteelMaster’s durable and versatile buildings to fit their needs. Our experienced project managers have the expertise to design custom buildings for your specific space and size requirements.  We also offer quick delivery for urgent requirements so you can start your project on time.

One of the greatest advantages of purchasing a SteelMaster building is its durability. Our buildings are built to last for decades using a minimum thickness of 22-gauge steel and a maximum thickness of 12-gauge steel. The heavy grade steel provides an incredibly strong building that can withstand the bumps and bangs common to a working structure.

Steel Building Advantages for Shipyards

Investing in a steel building to protect marine industry equipment at shipyards has many benefits. SteelMaster uses the highest quality steel on the market at an unbeatable price.

Quick to assemble

Most of our prefabricated building kits can be quickly constructed with just a small crew and minimal effort. There’s typically no need to hire outside construction companies or contractors. Every steel panel is pre-cut and pre-drilled at the factory to make your building easier to assemble. We also provide the necessary hardware that helps to secure the panels together to form the complete building envelope. It’s the perfect solution for those in the marine industry that need their buildings assembled as soon as possible.


SteelMaster buildings offer a benefit that traditional wood or fabric buildings don’t—portability. If you complete one of your projects or just need to move your building, you can simply take the building apart and reassemble it in another location. Be sure to tell our project managers if portability is an important feature for you so they can review the details of your building and offer insights and tips.

SteelMaster metal shipyard buildings can be designed to be lifted by crane by adding structural steel. Oceaneering, a company that provides full-service ship repair capabilities for the U.S. Navy, moved their metal building from the dock to ships for repair work.


SteelMaster’s metal Quonset Huts are noted for their longevity in harsh coastal environments due to our Galvalume Plus coated panels. This makes our buildings a great option for areas near water because the coating protects buildings in highly corrosive environments.  Because of this coating, minimal maintenance is required and the building does not require painting or treating. Customers also have the option to upgrade to salt-resistant nuts and bolts.

Colonna’s Shipyard, a full service ship repair facility in Virginia, uses SteelMaster Quonset Huts to store their work equipment. One of the greatest benefits of choosing SteelMaster metal Quonset Hut is the clear span design. Unlike traditional buildings, our shipyard steel buildings are self supporting and do not require the use of beams and trusses. This allows the owner to use 100 percent of the space on the inside of the building leaving plenty of room for large trucks, machinery, products and other large tools. When you decide to store expensive equipment and tools inside of SteelMaster building, your investments are protected from the severe weather and thieves.

Steelmaster was excellent to work with, Barrett and Matt made the process very simple and got me exactly the kit that I wanted. The shipping was fast, Jason the truck driver was excellent; he had great communication with his ETA, great backing skills, and was friendly. The kit was fun and enjoyable to put together, having previous experience from doing a Quonset about 15 years really helped, plus the fact of having cordless tools now (which weren’t popular/ were very expensive back then) made the process much easier. Once you get the first few arches up the building gets quite stiff and you can walk away from the project until you have time or bad weather improves, then with every bolt after that you can feel how strong it becomes. Very strong design and good metal. The building should last many many years, I wouldn’t be surprised if it outlives me. Thank you SteelMaster!

We received multiple wrong arch pieces, defective pieces and was even shorted an entire arch piece. However since it was more than 30 days from delivery their “firm 30 day policy” was stated as the reason they wouldn’t replace the pieces. 1/2 of the anchor bolt brackets were also wrong. Directions were horrible and YouTube videos from others were way more helpful. Their customer support people do not understand the products and tech support are not very experienced at building their structures. The tech support person i spoke to said he assembled one in a parking lot before. We have video of the wrong panels, missing panel and manufacturing defective panels that we received. Metal strapping used to ship also caused damage to pieces.They have reached out to resolve our issues. I will update when the have completed the delivery of the missing parts.They did step up and replace the damaged and missing pieces but i highly suggest you inventory and inspect everything during delivery. It will take hours to check everything but you don’t want to go through fighting to get the right parts.We do really like the building it’s a shame the customer service didn’t do the right thing from the first contact because they would have been able to avoid a lot of negative feelings.
