Paceship Yachts Ltd.
1962-1981
www.paceship.org

Paceship began as Industrial Shipping Company Limited of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, a builder of small plywood speedboats. When the plant was rebuilt after a fire in 1956, it became one of the earliest manufacturer of small fiberglass runabouts and sailboats.
The line soon expanded to include larger sailboats which they began marketing under the Paceship name around 1962. The company was acquired in 1965 by Atlantic Bridge Company Limited of Nova Scotia (ABCO) and the boat building operation was closed shortly afterward.
In 1975 the PY-23 and PY-26 tooling was sold to AMF of Connecticut, who built the design until 1981 when it closed down the Paceship division.

Tanzer Industries bought the mold and rights to the PY26 design in 1981 and produced the boat as the Tanzer 27.

Much of the information on boats built by this builder was obtained from the PACESHIP OWNERS SITE (www.paceship.org), which is one of the best sites of it's kind on the web.
