Trey Acosta, owner of Boat Services of Galveston, commented “I am pleased to turn over the day to day management of my vessels to Laborde Marine, which has an exemplary reputation for managing and operating vessels in an efficient manner. Laborde Marine’s commitment to safety is unsurpassed in the offshore industry.”
