American Dock and Marine
Turning Waterfront Visions into a Reality.

The Lowcountry's Go-To Marine Experts

Since our establishment in 1990 as a response to the coastal devastation caused by Hurricane Hugo in Charleston, American Dock & Marine has emerged as the premier and trusted marine contractor serving residential and light commercial needs in the Lowcountry. Our goal is to serve the community and the waterfront through our family’s traditions of marine construction. We look forward to helping guide your contribution to the Carolina coast.


Building Success, One Project at a Time

Our growth and success can be attributed to our expansive fleet of barges, excavators, and vibratory hammers, allowing us to execute large-scale projects and employ state-of-the-art marine construction techniques. As a full turnkey operation, we take pride in being a family-owned business involved in every aspect of the process, including permitting, design, construction, installation, and maintenance. Our goal is to cultivate enduring relationships with our clients by delivering comprehensive services.
