It is my pleasure to welcome you to our web site. Electric Boat has a distinguished history, tracing its roots to February 7th, 1899, when the company was established to complete a vessel that would revolutionize naval warfare.

Named Holland for its inventor, the visionary Irishman John Phillip Holland, this 54-foot vessel in 1900 became the first commissioned U.S. Navy submarine.

Since then, the Holland’s successors have been employed to radically reshape naval warfare and maritime strategy, while contributing to the successful outcome of World War II and play an indispensable role in the country’s Cold War victory.
