Naval Architecture and Marine Professional Services

Based in Mid-City New Orleans, MiNO Marine is a full service Naval Architecture firm backed by the solid credentials of its two principals, David M. Bourg, Ph.D. and Kenneth F. Humphreys, P.E.

Our services include everything from concept design to full production drawing packages and project management.
