Bollinger Shipyards, Lockport LA

Bollinger Marine Fabricators, Amelia LA

Most recent update:  January 16, 2018.


 

Bollinger is a privately held corporation that operates two construction yards, in addition to a multitude of repair yards.  The original Bollinger Machine Shop yard, in Lockport, builds high-value, high-complexity small ships, while Bollinger Marine Fabricators, in Amelia, builds simpler vessels.  The Amelia yard was formerly McDermott Shipbuilding: Bollinger acquired it in 1998: to see its construction record, click here.  Bollinger also acquired Gretna Machine & Iron Works, in Gretna LA, in 2001 but closed it in 2011: to see Gretna's prior record of shipbuilding, click here.  In 2015, the business was sold to a third-generation member of the Bollinger family, Ben Bordelon, with additional investment by the Chouest family.  Visit Bollinger at www.bollingershipyards.com and see an aerial view on Google of the Lockport yard here and the Amelia yard here.  In the table below, the yard codes are L for Lockport, A for Amelia, G for Gretna, C for Calcasieu, H for Houston and M for Matthews.
