Senesco Marine was founded by a local group of entrepreneurs who joined together in 1999 with the goal to create more jobs for Rhode Islanders. Senesco Marine started out building small deck barges and eventually moved into building larger vessels. Since then, Senesco Marine has entered the competitive tug and ferry building market and added aluminum fabrication to its repertoire.
