Research Vessel

Shipping and Towing

If your vessel has neither the fuel capacity or the ocean going ability to sail on its own bottom, we provide a one stop solution. We will arrange for a heavy lift ship or float-on floatoff vessel to ship your equipment to the destination. We deliver your vessel to the loading port, supervise loading and finalize unloading and deliver to your dock. We handle all the logistics needed for a successful outcome.

Responding to our customers’ needs has been a long standing tradition at Bayfront Marine, Inc. Whether or not  our customers need a quarter’s barge or a dead ship tow, we respond with solutions. Our inland and ocean contacts enable us to provide our customers with cost effective towing solutions to inland and foreign ports.

When our casino boat customers needed their vessels delivered to river cities along the Red River in Louisiana, the Mississippi River, the Missouri River, the Illinois River and the Ohio River, Bayfront Marine, Inc. responded with solutions. Many of these vessel were built too high to navigate the bridges en-route or were hampered by flood waters; we combined manning with towing and got these vessels delivered. Wheelhouses came off, placed on barges and the voyage was completed under tow, arranged by Bayfront Marine, Inc.

Our contacts allow us to arrange towing and deliveries to inland and offshore ports wherever you need your equipment delivered. We find a way to get the job done. Call us if you have an unusual delivery.
