Dipper Dredge No. 3 is a historic dredge located at Lyons in Wayne County, New York. It is a steam powered floating dredge located at the dry dock of the New York State Barge Canal at Lyons. The dredge consists of a rectangular riveted steel hull built in 1929 and measuring 110 feet in length, 34 feet in beam, and 7 feet in draft. The bow of the hull is squared and vertical. The stern is squared but inclined in the manner of a scow. In 1946, fuel bunkers were added to the sides of the hull. Much of the machinery, including the steam engines, was built in 1909.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
