Trinity Yachts fares well through Isaac

ADVERTISEMENT

Both Trinity Yachts yards, in New Orleans, Louisiana and Gulfport, Mississippi yards reported faring well following the landfall of hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac at the end of August.
The New Orleans yard was hit by a Category 1 hurricane while the Gulfport yard was hit by a tropical storm with 9 feet of storm surge, Billy Smith of Trinity Yachts said in a news release.
There was no damage to the Gulfport yard or to any of the yachts and other vessels under construction. The New Orleans yard had a direct hit but the recently completed floodgates worked.
The 11 foot storm surge did not damage the shipyard which is located inside of the new levee protection system. About 18 inches of water which came over the bulkheads.
Trinity reported that the only damage to the New Orleans shipyard was to some roof panels of the covered wetslip which was not occupied at the time.
“The Trinity built 164-foot (50m) M/Y Mia Elise, which was moored at the New Orleans yard for some maintenance work and modifications, had no problems during the storm,” Smith said in a news release. “The crew, led by Capt. Ron Wood, did a great job preparing the yacht for the approaching storm and she suffered no damage.”
The New Orleans yard will reopen as soon as the city restores power, he said.
