A NAVSEA Master Ship Repair Contractor


USNS MATTHEW PERRY (T- AKE 9) PACSHIP has served the U.S. Military, including the Navy, Military Sealift Command, Coast Guard and Army, as well as a wide spectrum of commercial customers ranging from other shipyards to cruise lines, since 1969.

Experienced With All Types and Sizes of Surface ShipsBack To Top


PACSHIP’s ship repair and modernization experience base spans the entire surface ship-class inventory of the U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command and Coast Guard. PACSHIP routinely supports the overhaul and modernization of nuclear aircraft carriers homeported in San Diego and Puget Sound; and recently supported the emergency fire-damage repairs to USS GEORGE WASHINGTON. PACSHIP performs both voyage repairs and major overhauls for Military Sealift Command assets including post-shakedown availabilities aboard MSC’s newest ships, the T-AKE 1 Class. PACSHIP provides production support for the maintenance of every-type of Navy surface combatant (CG, DDG, FFG) and auxiliary ship (LSD, LPD, MCM, YTB, etc.) homeported on the West Coast. PACSHIP also support the Coast Guard’s maintenance programs for vessels ranging from ice-breakers and high-endurance cutters to buoy tenders.


Voyage and Emergency RepairsBack To Top


USNS MATTHEW PERRY (T- AKE 9) PACSHIP excels at performing emergent and emergency repairs and our mobile fleet enables PACSHIP to quickly respond with the right mix of manpower and equipment while other shipyards are still trying to stage for the effort at hand. A recent example of PACSHIP’s emergency response capabilities is the fire that broke out aboard the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON (CVN-73) as the ship was transiting to it’s new home port in Japan.

Upon notification of the fire, PACSHIP sent a technical team directly to the ship as it headed to port in San Diego. This team surveyed the damage and, when the ship pulled up to the pier, PACSHIP’s workforce was there, ready to enter the burned out spaces to install temporary lighting and ventilation so the true extent of the damage could be assessed. PACSHIP and several other San Diego shipyards then worked 24 hours per day, seven days a week to help restore the ship’s burned out systems and allow WASHINGTON to proceed to Japan. The success of the emergency response aboard WASHINGTON was due, in large part, to the great teaming relationships forged between San Diego's four major shipyards.
