Trinity Sets New Headquarters in Baton Rouge

Tuesday, September 06, 2005
Trinity Yachts announced it is opening a new administrative headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana after hurricane Katrina blew through New Orleans, La. and shut down the city. According to Felix Sabates, CEO, “Our hearts and prayers go out to our family of employees at Trinity and to all the people of New Orleans and our neighboring areas affected by Katrina. We are doing everything in our power to bring a sense of normalcy back to our employees and we will be back on line very shortly. To help facilitate things, we are setting up a new administration headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We would like our vendors to contact us there with any questions they may have with regards to ongoing and future projects.” Sabates added, “We have been blessed with very little damage to the main shipyard except for a couple of missing roof panels from one of the older sheds and our recently launched yachts ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM and the LADY FLORENCE are safe and sound, as is the M/Y LEDA.” Trinity Yachts, the largest builder of superyachts in the USA, employs over 500 people at their 40 acre factory based in the Eastern section of New Orleans. Sabates continues, “We will still show at Monaco and Fort Lauderdale of course, and with the new office in Baton Rouge, we will be open for business next week.”
