"We are very excited to introduce the M/V Shelia Bordelon and the ULIV concept to the subsea market," explained President/CEO Wes Bordelon, "We think it hits a sweet spot and provides an affordable high-spec option that the industry is currently missing. As subsea infrastructure develops, the ULIV will play an increasingly important role in the vessel portfolio of these projects. Thus providing a much needed cost benefit option to the client.

The Shelia Bordelon also features a pink stripe and the Susan G. Komen logo. Named in honor of Shelia Harasimowicz, Wes Bordelon’s mother-in-law, and two time breast cancer survivor. Bordelon Marine has committed to a year long campaign to fight breast cancer. Bordelon Marine will donate a portion of the profits from the M/V Shelia Bordelon to the New Orleans affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
