Gulf Island Shipyards, Jennings LA

(formerly Zigler Shipyards and Leevac Shipyards)

Most recent update: July 18, 2018.


The Zigler company goes back to 1913 but apparently only started to build marine equipment in 1956.  It was acquired by the Vaccari family in 1965 and renamed Leevac Shipyards in 1982, Leevac Industries in 2002 and Leevac Shipyards Jennings in 2012, to differentiate it from Leevac Shipyards Houma, the former Quality Shipyards.  In 2015 the company's assets were bought by Gulf Island Shipyards.  Visit the company at www.gulfisland.com.  The shipyard is on the west bank of the Mermentau river, just south of the Highway 90 bridge: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can fill any of the gaps in the table below, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
