Bollinger Delivers Mega Mini Supply Boat

Tuesday, January 11, 2005
Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. has delivered the M/V Capt. Rudy to Seahorse Marine Inc. of Lockport, La. The M/V Capt. Rudy is the first of a new vessel concept that was modeled from the success of the original Bollinger 145 ft. mini supply vessel design, which will provide greater capacity, better sea-keeping and has several design improvements. The M/V Capt. Rudy is a 163 ft. mega mini supply boat named in honor of the captain of one of the first Bollinger 145 ft. mini supply boats, Seahorse, Capt. Rudy "Uncle Rudy" Lefort. The concept design is a collaboration of Phillip Plaisance, president of Seahorse Marine, and Bollinger's design and production team. "I've had a lot of success with vessels from Bollinger, and I have influenced the various designs by working with Bollinger to get exactly the vessel I need to take care of my customer's needs.", said Phillip Plaisance. "The Capt. Rudy is another example of Bollinger's dedication to working with the customer, insuring that the operator gets the quality vessel that they spec'ed out, at the agreed price, and delivered on time," continued Plaisance.
