The Shipyard Worker as he appears in-game in Phantom Hourglass
|First appearance||Phantom Hourglass|
|Latest appearance||Spirit Tracks (as a portrait in Bridge Worker's Home)|
|Family||Bridge Worker (implied descendent)|
In Phantom Hourglass, the Shipyard Worker works in the Shipyard on Mercay Island. In the Shipyard, Link can customize the S.S. Linebeck with the different Ship Parts he has collected throughout his journey. If Link accidentally damages the Salvage Arm, he can visit the Shipyard to have it repaired by the Shipyard Worker. If the Salvage Arm's life gauge runs empty it breaks and can't be used until Link has it repaired. The Shipyard Worker charges Link based on the amount of damage that the Salvage Arm has sustained, up to 100 Rupees.
In the Bridge Worker's Home in the Snow Realm in Spirit Tracks, there is a portrait of the Shipyard Worker on the right side of the room. This, and the fact that he and the Bridge Worker looks stunningly similar suggests that they are related, similarly to how Gonzo and Alfonzo are related.
- At the beginning of the game, the Shipyard Worker repairs the bridge on Mercay Island, demonstrating that he possesses the same abilities as his descendant the Bridge Worker. However, he states that he dislikes repairing bridges. In this, he is reminiscent of Pippin, a farmer in Oracle of Ages who hates Gasha Seeds but has a descendant, Bipin, who grows them.

- ↑ "This crummy bridge breaks every time we have a quake! Don't have time to keep on babysitting this thing. Not when ships need fixing! But Oshus says that bridges are just as 'portant as ships... When that old man tells you to do something, you do it, like it or not. And I don't like it. But I'll do it." — Shipyard Worker (Phantom Hourglass)
