ARIES MARINE CORPORATION

Aries Marine is a traditional Gulf of Mexico supply boat and liftboat company which was started ujp in 1981 by Dwight S. Ramsay. It was and still is privately owned. The company website did not tell us why Mr Ramsay decided to go into the offshore support business. There are some who would probably say that it was as the result of temporary insanity. However the company had developed and now has 15 liftboats and 9 supply vessels in the fleet. There is one shiop due for delivery in 2015.

They only came to our attention due to the submission of a photo of one of the fleet  by the Captain of a drill ship. The dimensions and details of the vessels are in Imperial Units.

Initiated 18th December 2014.
