This used to be the contact page for Brown Marine Service, Inc., which was incorporated by Capt. Shirley Brown in 1958 as a tugboat and barge company.

After the death of Capt. Brown in 2005 the family decided to reorganize the business and sell off all but the Marina & Boatyard and also to retain some of the investment real estate. Brown Marine Service, Inc. was dissolved but the Marine and Industrial Supply division was rolled into the Marina boat yard division and reincorporated into the present Audusson Marina, LLC using the name of Pelican Perch Marina & Boatyard and Brown Marine Suppy.

Shortly after his father's death, Ted Brown formed TBH Holdings, LLC and is working with waterfront real estate as well as the Power Plants that Mr. Estill Lunsford markets.

The Brown Family still owns various pieces of prime waterfront real estate suitable for development in Pensacola, Florida and in Orange Beach, Alabama.
