Shipyards in New Orleans and Gulfport, Miss., are being branded under the name Gulf Coast Shipyard Group Inc.

Gulf Coast Shipyard Group manufactures offshore supply vessels, tank barges, military patrol vessels, tugs and superyachts from the two facilities.

Trinity Yachts, a major builder of custom superyachts, will continue as a division of Gulf Coast Shipyard Group.

Earlier this year, private investment firm Littlejohn & Co. LLC invested in Gulf Coast Shipyard Group to support its strategic growth plans and continue investments in its two shipyards.

“As our company has grown and evolved we believe our corporate identity going forward will be enhanced as Gulf Coast Shipyard Group, a brand that better captures the nature of our commercial, military and government markets,” John Dane III, Gulf Coast Shipyard Group’s president and CEO, said.
