Carriden Boat Yard is a prime storage facility, principally for boats and accommodation for workshops, shipping containers, and vehicles.  It was established as a Carriden Boatyard Ltd. in 1992.

Before World War 2,  the Royal Navy used the yard for ship breaking and repairing motor torpedo boats during the War.

Several small businesses are operating out of the Boatyard.

In July 2018, Tom Gerhardt bought over the business and now runs it, very much in keeping with the original ethos of the business.

Carriden Boatyard is situated a short drive from Edinburgh, on the south bank of the Forth Estuary at the eastern end of Bo’Ness (Borrowstouness).
