About Us

MiNO Marine, LLC (MiNO) is a Louisiana based naval architecture and marine professional services firm began under the name David M. Bourg & Associates in 1997 and renamed MiNO Marine, LLC in 2006.

Our services include everything from concept design to full production drawing packages and project management. We specialize in Liftboat design having recently performed the full design and production engineering for the 335’ Class Liftboat L/B Robert (delivered in 2012), which is an evolution of our earlier 235’ Class design (the L/B Paul and L/B Caitlin). Aside from Liftboats we work with a variety of offshore work vessels including semi-submersibles. Additionally, we have experience in military applications as well as Government sponsored R&D projects.

MiNO’s principals are David M. Bourg and Kenneth F. Humphreys who are supported by a staff of 14 Naval Architects & Engineers, 7 Marine Designers, and 2 office support staff.
