Goliath dominated the landscape and economy of Quincy for many years. The gantry crane, once the world’s largest at 328 feet tall, has been a Quincy landmark since it was built 33 years ago. The shipbuilding industry in Quincy has been idle for two decades. The glorious "shipbuilding age" in Quincy will have its final chapter written with the sale of Goliath. It will be dismantled and moved to the Romanian coast where shipbuilding is a growing industry.
