The construction process of a Liberty ship.

At the peak of the Liberty ship production, shipyards could deliver a completed vessel in less than a week.

The record was set by the SS Robert E. Peary, built by the Kaiser Permanente Metals Corporation’s yard in Richmond, California, launched just 4 days, 15 hours, and 30 minutes after the keel was laid.
