Stern's Shipyard (Japanese: クスノキ造船所 Kusunoki Shipyard) is a building owned by Captain Stern, featured in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Stern's Shipyard is a large brown building located next to the ocean. In front of the building are two houses, and around the building are three small wooden boats. It is located in the eastern part of Slateport City, and is where the S.S. Tidal was constructed. The Shipyard also takes old boats and sinks them, to make habitats for the Pokémon who live around the city and its neighboring beaches.

Then, after the player has entered the Hall of Fame, the ferry will take them to the Battle TowerRS or to the Battle FrontierE. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, after the player completes the Delta Episode, they can board the ferry to the Battle Resort.
