To maritime enthusiasts, collectors, engineers, architects and historians, the name 'The Shipbuilder' is pure magic. Founded in 1906, it chronicled in great detail the building, launch and outfitting of the latest ships, providing a vivid and sometimes the only existing record for future generations.
