Trinity builder expands into port


Gulf Coast Shipyard Group, a manufacturer of ocean-going and inland marine vessels for commercial and military markets as well as the Trinity Yachts brand, has signed a three-year lease (with one-year options) with the Port of Gulfport to use 400 linear feet of dock space on the Port’s East Pier and 15,000 square feet of warehouse space to outfit the dual fuel liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered vessels it is building for Harvey Gulf International Marine.

“We are pleased to work with the Port of Gulfport and grow our business in Mississippi,” said John Dane III, president of Gulf Coast Shipyard Group. “We’ve worked together in the past on a smaller scale and look forward to this expanded relationship.”

The Port of Gulfport is undergoing a $570 million restoration and is roughly 18 months from completion. The shipyard expects the first vessel to be at the port by mid-month.
