Zidell Marine Corporation



Back in the days of wooden barges, Emery Zidell had a vision: use the recycled steel plate from scrapped ships to build a steel barge. Zidell went on to pioneer steel barge construction, including building some of the industry’s first double-hulled barges.

Fifty years and over 300 launches later, Zidell barges are known to be among the best-built on water, hauling sand and gravel, lumber, grain, chemicals, petroleum products and wood chips on oceans and river systems around the world.

In addition to the sale of custom-built barges, Zidell manages a diverse fleet for lease and charter.
