Alexander Hall and Sons built ships in Aberdeen from 1797 to 1957.[1]

The firm is particularly remembered for the Aberdeen or clipper bow developed in the late 1830s.

Alexander Hall took over his father-in-law’s shipbuilding business Cochar and Gibbon in 1790 to found Alexander Hall and Company.

One ship later developed was the Jho Sho Maru, a barque-rigged steamer, built in the 1860s for the Japanese Navy.
