Crab Boat Builder

The Dungeness crab fishery has been established commercially on the west coast of the United States since 1848. And of course Oregon has consistently been one of the largest producers of Dungeness crab on the west coast.

The Dungeness crab fishery is considered one of the most valuable single species commercial fisheries in Oregon, harvesting an average of 14 million pounds of crab per season. Currently there are about 335 permits for fishing vessels in the crab fishing fleet for the state of Oregon.

Here at Giddings Boat Works we understand how critical crab fishing is for the economy here in Oregon, not only for the state but also for the many local economies, ports, shipyards and support industries that make up the industry.
