Since our first shipyard was founded in 1921, the four shipbuilding companies of the Trinity Marine Group have built over 9000 vessels! We've also converted and repaired hundreds more.

You name it, we've built it.

We are Halter Marine, Inc., Moss Point

Marine, Inc., Equitable Shipyards, Inc., and

Gretna Machine and Iron Works.

We build everything from tugs, supply and crew boats, to trawler/processors, patrol boats, ferries, and dinner/cruise vessels.

We build landing craft, pilot boats, barges, dredges, fireboats and surface effect ships too. We build tow boats, small tankers, drill- ships, ocean surveillance ships, container- ships, RO/RO's, reefer ships, research vessels, and just about any boat you can name.

We meet the rigid requirements of the

U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and

Department of the Interior. And we build to the standards of the ABS, U.S. Coast Guard,

Lloyds, Det Norske Veritas, and SOLAS.

We will build to your design, or you can use our complete in-house services from design and engineering to global warranty assistance. We also handle your spare parts requirements promptly and accurately.

Each of our six shipyards specializes in certain vessels and each is staffed by ship- building experts supported by advanced com- puter aided design and manufacturing.

You receive personal attention—whether your requirements are small or large. Our list of satisfied repeat customers includes some of the smallest, and largest operators in the world. That's because each shipyard is a separate cost center and self-reliant.

They do benefit from centralized adminis- trative functions which reduce their costs— and yours. Our shipyards also gain from the considerable resources of our parent com- pany, Trinity Industries, Inc.

The experience gained in building over 9000 vessels pays dividends in every boat we build. No other shipbuilder in the world can match our record in production, adapta- bility, innovation, stability, and quality.

Chances are we have already designed and built the kind of vessel you need. So if you need a boat, we can and want to build it for you. Ask us.
