All Coast Acquires Hercules Offshore Domestic Liftboats
All Coast, LLC, a newly formed company for the marine services industry, founded by John Powers and John Nesser III, has completed the acquisition of the Hercules Offshore Domestic liftboat assets. This acquisition includes 29 actively marketed liftboats ranging from class 105 to class 229, 10 inactive lifeboats, and additional related assets acquired at a purchase price of $57.5 million.
Powers and Nesser, All Coast managers and co-CEOs, each have more than 40 years of experience in the oil and gas, engineering and maritime industries.
Throughout his career, Powers has owned and operated numerous energy and marine services companies including Power Offshore Services, LLC; Reeled Tubing, LLC; Seatrax, LLC; and Coastal Drilling Co. Previously, Nesser served as the executive vice president and chief operating officer for McDermott International, where he held executive positions for more than 10 years.
All Coast domestic operations will be lead by Byron Allemand, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, and the operations center will remain in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Nesser commented that “John and I have been looking for the opportunity to re-enter the liftboat industry as owners and operators for several years. We look forward to the challenge of serving the offshore market with the highest standards of service and safety.” Nesser further noted, “We expect to grow All Coast and expand our fleet with new acquisitions and new builds.”
