Karl Senner is proud to equip Maritime Partners Vessel, M/V Jack Nash, with 2 REINTJES WAF 665 Reverse Reduction Gearboxes


Metairie, La.-based Maritime Partners, the nation’s largest provider of maritime assets, vessel leasing solutions and construction financing, closed out its $75 million, 15-vessel series from C&C Marine and Repair in style with the January 26 christening of the mv. Jack Nash.

Maritime Partners brought the Entech-designed mv. Jack Nash from C&C’s shipyard on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in nearby Belle Chasse to the French Quarter riverfront, where the vessel was moored alongside the steamer Natchez. After the christening, Maritime Partners hosted an afterparty aboard the Natchez.

The vessel is named for Maritime Partners’ first employee besides founders Austin Sperry, president of the company, and Bick Brooks, who serves as CEO. Nash, who is Brooks’ cousin, heard about the new venture in 2015 and reached out to offer his services.

“I had always heard horror stories about mixing business and family, so I tried to discourage him,” Brooks said. “I told him he wouldn’t be paid, he wouldn’t have a clear job description and he would have to be available at all hours of the day.”

As it turned out, the then-20-year-old Nash was up for the challenge.
