Burrard, Vancouver, Canada
Burrard Dry Dock Ltd was a Canadian shipbuilder. It was founded in 1921 (from the existing Wallace Yards) and had its headquarters in Vancouver, BC. In 1971 the yard was sold to Yarrow Shipbuilders (leading a consortium) and it was renamed Burrard-Yarrows Corporation. In 1985 its name changed again, into Versatile Pacific Shipyards.
