Laborde Marine’s current fleet of 22 vessels, consisting of crew boats and supply boats, is suited to support all offshore operations including exploration, drilling and production support, construction support, seismic survey platforms and support, as well as many other aspects of offshore marine support.
With corporate headquarters in New Orleans, Louisiana, Laborde Marine’s operations office, located in Morgan City, Louisiana, provides direct supervision and full support of all vessel operations. In 2015, Laborde Marine expects to open its newly constructed, state-of-the-art operations facility in Houma, Louisiana.

Laborde Marine was founded in 1995 by J. Peter Laborde, Jr., who gained 15 years of invaluable offshore support vessel experience at Tidewater, Inc. before starting Laborde Marine. In 2007, Peter’s brother, Cliffe Laborde, joined the company – adding another 15 years of industry experience to the executive management team. Building upon this foundation of in-depth knowledge and hands-on expertise, Laborde Marine has assembled a team that includes some of the most highly qualified and experienced professionals in the offshore support vessel industry.
Laborde Marine truly believes that it is its people who make the difference – and its exceptional level of knowledge, skill, and experience is what sets Laborde Marine apart from its competitors.
Laborde Marine is a closely-held company where the owners are highly involved in all aspects of operations while fostering a family environment. The result is a team of close-knit professionals who emphasize communication, trust, and attention to detail in providing every customer with outstanding service.
