Aries Marine Corporation ~ Lafayette, Louisiana

Aries Marine Corporation, a privately held Louisiana Corporation, was formed in early 1981 by Dwight S. Ramsay to own and operate in the Gulf of Mexico self-elevating workboats and supply vessels.

The self-elevating work boats, also called liftboats or jack-ups, provide mobile yet stable work platforms, crane capabilities and living accommodations for work crews performing services to offshore oil and gas production platforms. The Liftboats range in leg length from 130' to 215', and are capable of operating in maximum water depths of 175'.

Primarily associated with drilling operations, the supply boats provide Aries with a diverse business mix within the marine industry. Our OSV's, as they are commonly called, or PSV's (Platform Supply Vessels) are the delivery trucks of the offshore sector. Our OSV vessels range in length from 220' to 254', all of which are dynamic positioning.

Currently, there are 26 vessels in the fleet.

Because of our diverse fleet, Aries has worked for all of the major producers as well as most of the independents. We have established a top reputation due to all Aries operations being conducted by experienced, safety minded personnel. Aries Marine takes pride in the cleanliness of its vessels, the efficiency of its operations and our excellent safety record.

Aries Marine is headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana and maintains a sales and warehouse facility in nearby Youngsville, Louisiana. Aries Marine employs over 300 people.
