Brown's Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. was a ship repairer based at Lime Street on the river Hull in Yorkshire, England.

  • It was originally owned by the Brown family before it was then bought up by Herbert F. Craggs.
  • It built four coasters during the 1920s but lack of subsequent orders meant that the yard concentrated on shiprepairing.
  • The yard closed in the 1950s.
