The Hingham Shipyard is a maritime village in Hingham located off Route 3A that combines luxury living in a waterfront setting. The Shipyard draws on its rich history as a major supplier of the warships that helped change history. At the height of World War II, workers at the Hingham Shipyard built and launched 227 warships. 100 Destroyer Escort Ships constructed in the Shipyard helped guide thousands of convoys across the Atlantic. And, the Allies’ success in the D-Day invasions was only possible with the 127 Landing Ship Tanks that were built and launched from the Hingham Shipyard site.
Today, the Shipyard is home to The Launch — a multi-use complex that features condos, townhomes, and apartments as well as more than 40 different stores and a number of restaurants and entertainment options. The launch also offers a 500-slip marina for boating enthusiasts as well as a movie theater and continues to serve as the venue for numerous seasonal and outdoor events.
