Products & Services
Engineering & Design
Our experienced and talented team of engineers includes pipe designers and structural designers, electrical and mechanical engineers, as well as naval architects on staff. We can also provide anything from a total turnkey "design and build” project to the design of specific singular components that a customer may require, which includes marine engineers who provide project engineering and management from start to finish. In addition, our engineers maintain continual communication with owners and operators to ensure that we know precisely what is expected and keep each project on time and to exact specifications. Our engineers also maintain frequent communications with our shipyard production and repair facilities to ensure the quality of our work and adherence to specifications and regulations.
GULF ISLAND Shipyards has built vessels of just about every description – platform supply vessels, offshore construction vessels, offshore and inshore barges, towboats, tugs, casinos, passenger vessels, fishing vessels, and specialty vessels since 1965. Over the years we have designed, manufactured and launched a large variety of vessels and barges up to 500 feet in length.
All of our modular construction is done indoors in a safe, controlled environment. This provides the advantage of having our workforce and our state-of-the-art equipment protected from the elements – while also allowing us to maintain our reputation for on time and on budget deliveries.
The men and women of GULF ISLAND take great personal pride in every vessel that leaves our facility. Combining technology, commitment and a desire to do the job right for each of our customers.
GULF ISLAND has been repairing and modifying vessels and barges for nearly a half century – so you would be hard pressed to find any company with nearly as much experience and expertise. With third and fourth generation highly skilled craftsmen at your service – plus state-of-the-art equipment – we are more than capable of meeting your repair needs.
Conversions, modifications and repairs are all supported by our in-house engineering department. Building and repairing boats and barges is what GULF ISLAND is all about – so there is no doubt that you will be getting the highest quality services in the industry.
