NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans-based Harvey Gulf International Marine is entering the shipbuilding business with the acquisition of Trinity Yachts in New Orleans and Gulf Coast Shipyard in Gulfport, Mississippi.
The company said Thursday it created a new affiliated company, Harvey Shipyard Group, to manage its shipbuilding assets. The purchase price was not disclosed.
The Advocate reports the shipyards in New Orleans and Gulfport were branded in 2013 under the name Gulf Coast Shipyard Group Inc., with Trinity as a division of the company. Trinity Yachts builds custom-made super yachts.
With its Gulf Coast Shipyard acquisition, Harvey Gulf International Marine said it will build on that company’s success in constructing the nation’s first liquefied natural gas-powered offshore supply vessels for the oil and gas drilling market.
