Gulf States Real Estate Services of Alabama has listed a 120-acre property on the Mobile River with deep-water port access plus interstate, rail and air nearby.
The property has been part of the Alabama Shipyard complex, but the company says it no longer needs that space to handle its “robust current operations of repairing and decommissioning ships and other marine apparatus.”
“This property has been one of the hottest collections of real estate along the entire Gulf Coast and the nation,” said Mike Saucier and Donald Holyfield of Gulf States Real Estate. “Many companies are looking for distribution and other logistical advantages this property provides, given its deep-water access and is located minutes from Interstate 10 and Alabama’s major rail and air complexes.” Saucier is president of Gulf States and Holyfield is broker of record.
Alabama Shipyard describes itself as “the largest shipyard in Mobile, Alabama.”
Established more than a century ago, Alabama Shipyard offers one of the nation’s largest floating dry docks, a 6,000-foot pier, 42-foot water depth and a variety of cranes ranging up to 275 tons.
In August, the firm was working simultaneously on repair of four Navy ships and the floating production vessel Helix 1, which services offshore oil production facilities.
