Retaining Clients with Quality Shipyards and Services
Our Shipyards Division was formed in 2008 and we've been enhancing our capabilities ever since. With the 2016 acquisition of Leevac Shipyards which brought over 65 years of shipbuilding experience, we enhanced our capacity to deliver complex vessels and provide technical services. This experience is now coupled with our state-of-the-art facilities, rolling-mill capacity, living-quarters experience, panel-line buildings, large drydock, large cranes and transporters.
We offer a quick repair yard in Lake Charles, LA. Our Jennings, LA, location has a history of delivering ATBs, barges, supply boats, lift boats and government/military vessels while our Houma, LA, shipyard provides access to much of the Company's resources for coordinating large projects and has significant bulkhead and yard space.
A Technical Services group in New Orleans now provides enhanced oversight of engineering, estimating and related services to ensure our products exceed customer expectations.
We have designed, fabricated and repaired a variety of vessels including, but not limited to, offshore supply vessels (OSV), platform support vessels (PSV), crew boats, supply boats, oilfield specialty and research vessels, inland and oceangoing tug boats and barges - as well as commercial fishing vessels, workboats, casino boats, excursion and passenger vessels. We have outfitted ships with state-of-the-art propulsion systems from industry-leading suppliers.
We also provide specialized vessel repairs for lift boats, dredge boats and more. In addition, Gulf Island has designed and built quarter units/flotels (housing units or floating hotels) as well as drydocks.
