Moore Dry Dock Company was a ship repair and shipbuilding company in Oakland, CA. It was started in 1909, operating primarily as a repair yard. Its shipbuilding capabilities were expanded in the World War II era, when it built over 100 ships for the U.S. Navy and merchant marine. It ceased operation after the war.

The yard was notable for its employment of several thousand Negroes, in both skilled and unskilled positions.
