Rigdon Marine recently received the M/V Conti, the seventh of ten GPA 640 platform supply vessels being
built at Bender Shipyard in Mobile, Alabama. Mrs. Patti Guice, wife of Billy Guice, Vice President of Marketing for Rigdon Marine, christened the vessel before it dispatched for contract work in the Gulf of Mexico. “We are extremely please that the M/V Conti was immediately dispatched to support the worldwide offshore activities of a prominent oil service company,” said Larry Rigdon. “This recent deployment continues to reinforce the numerous advantages of the GPA 640 PSV including increased fuel efficiency, superior station-keeping via our ABS-classed DPS-2 system and increased liquid mud capacity in self-cleaning, cylindrical cargo tanks.”
Rigdon Marine is scheduled to take delivery of sister ships M/V St. Louis in April, 2005; M/V Toulouse in June, 2005; and M/V Esplanade in August, 2005.
