  Bordelon Marine is partnering with Susan G. Komen as part of its continuing relationship to christen the MV Shelia Bordelon on Friday, March 20th at Bordelon Marine Shipbuilders in Houma, LA.

A pink stripe will be featured on the vessel along with the Susan G. Komen New Orleans logo. In support of this partnership Bordelon Marine has also enlisted several of the vendor companies that are involved with the Shelia Bordelon to be a sponsor of the christening by making a direct donation to Susan G. Komen on behalf of the Shelia Bordelon. The MV Shelia Bordelon is the second vessel from the new Stingray series 260’ Class DP2. All of the Stingray vessels will be built at Bordelon Marine Shipbuilders. Wes Bordelon, President/CEO Bordelon Marine commented, “We are very pleased to be involved with Susan G. Komen New Orleans and the level of support from our vendors and the community has been amazing. What began as a way to bring my immediate family some solace in this difficult time has truly brought out the best in my extended work family and the community as a whole. I am truly grateful for those who have joined us in this endeavor of support.”
