Breaux's Bay Craft, Loreauville LA

Most recent update: August 30, 2014.


Breaux's Bay Craft was originally a towboat builder but switched to crewboats when the offshore industry got going in the 1960s.  The company does not have a web site.  The shipyard is on the west bank of Bayou Teche, in the center of Loreauville: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
