Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Basis Of Consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (the “Company”). In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made to fairly present the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2017, its results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, its comprehensive loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, its changes in equity for the six months ended June 30, 2017, and its cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. The condensed consolidated financial information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 has not been audited by the Company’s independent registered certified public accounting firm. Results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of operating results for the full year or any future periods.
Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States have been condensed or omitted. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and related notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2016 included in the Information Statement filed as Exhibit 99.1 to Amendment No. 3 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form 10, which was declared effective on May 11, 2017 (the “Registration Statement”).
Unless the context otherwise indicates, any reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to the “Company” refers to SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries and any reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to “SEACOR Marine” refers to SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc. without its consolidated subsidiaries. Capitalized terms used and not specifically defined herein have the same meaning given those terms in the Registration Statement.
SEACOR Marine was previously a subsidiary of SEACOR Holdings Inc. (along with its other majority owned subsidiaries collectively referred to as “SEACOR Holdings”). On June 1, 2017, SEACOR Holdings completed a spin-off of SEACOR Marine by way of a pro rata dividend of SEACOR Marine’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), all of which was then held by SEACOR Holdings, to SEACOR Holdings shareholders of record as of May 22, 2017 (the “Spin-off”). SEACOR Marine entered into certain agreements with SEACOR Holdings to govern SEACOR Marine’s relationship with SEACOR Holdings following the Spin-off, including a Distribution Agreement, two Transition Services Agreements, an Employee Matters Agreement and a Tax Matters Agreement. Following the Spin-off, SEACOR Marine began to operate as an independent, publicly traded company.
Revenue Recognition
Revenue Recognition. The Company recognizes revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned. Revenue is realized or realizable and earned when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue that does not meet these criteria is deferred until the criteria are met. Deferred revenues, included in other current liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, for the six months ended June 30 were as follows (in thousands):

As of June 30, 2017, deferred revenues of $6.8 million related to the time charter of several offshore support vessels paid through the conveyance of an overriding royalty interest (the “Conveyance”) in developmental oil and gas producing properties operated by a customer in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Payments under the Conveyance, and the timing of such payments, were contingent upon production and energy sale prices. On August 17, 2012, the customer filed a voluntary petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The Company is vigorously defending its interest in connection with the bankruptcy filing; however, payments received under the Conveyance subsequent to May 19, 2012 are subject to creditors’ claims in bankruptcy court. The Company will recognize revenues when reasonably assured of a judgment in its favor. All costs and expenses related to these charters were recognized as incurred.
As of June 30, 2017, deferred revenues of $2.3 million related to the time charter of an offshore support vessel to a customer from which collection was not reasonably assured. The Company will recognize revenues when collected or when collection is reasonably assured. All costs and expenses related to this charter were recognized as incurred.
Property, Plant and Equipment, Policy [Policy Text Block]
Property and Equipment. Equipment, stated at cost, is depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset to an estimated salvage value. With respect to each class of asset, the estimated useful life is based upon a newly built asset being placed into service and represents the time period beyond which it is typically not justifiable for the Company to continue to operate the asset in the same or similar manner. From time to time, the Company may acquire older assets that have already exceeded the Company’s useful life policy, in which case the Company depreciates such assets based on its best estimate of remaining useful life, typically the next survey or certification date.
As of June 30, 2017, the estimated useful life (in years) of each of the Company’s major categories of new equipment was as follows:
Offshore Support Vessels:
 
Wind farm utility vessels
10
All other offshore support vessels (excluding wind farm utility)
20

Equipment maintenance and repair costs and the costs of routine overhauls, drydockings and inspections performed on vessels and equipment are charged to operating expense as incurred. Expenditures that extend the useful life or improve the marketing and commercial characteristics of equipment as well as major renewals and improvements to other properties are capitalized.
Certain interest costs incurred during the construction of equipment are capitalized as part of the assets’ carrying values and are amortized over such assets’ estimated useful lives. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, capitalized interest totaled $2.3 million.

Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, Policy [Policy Text Block]
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. The Company performs an impairment analysis of long-lived assets used in operations, including intangible assets, when indicators of impairment are present. These indicators may include a significant decrease in the market price of a long-lived asset or asset group, a significant adverse change in the extent or manner in which a long-lived asset or asset group is being used or in its physical condition, or a current period operating or cash flow loss combined with a history of operating or cash flow losses or a forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with the use of a long-lived asset or asset group. If the carrying values of the assets are not recoverable, as determined by the estimated undiscounted cash flows, the estimated fair value of the assets or asset groups are compared to their current carrying values and impairment charges are recorded if the carrying value exceeds fair value. The Company performs its testing on an asset or asset group basis. Generally, fair value is determined using valuation techniques, such as expected discounted cash flows or appraisals, as appropriate. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recognized impairment charges of $5.7 million primarily associated with one leased-in supply vessel removed from service as it is not expected to be marketed prior to being returned to its owner.
Impairment of 50% or Less Owned Companies. Investments in 50% or less owned companies are reviewed periodically to assess whether there is an other-than-temporary decline in the carrying value of the investment. In its evaluation, the Company considers, among other items, recent and expected financial performance and returns, impairments recorded by the investee and the capital structure of the investee. When the Company determines that the estimated fair value of an investment is below carrying value and the decline is other-than-temporary, the investment is written down to its estimated fair value. Actual results may vary from the Company’s estimates due to the uncertainty regarding projected financial performance, the severity and expected duration of declines in value, and the available liquidity in the capital markets to support the continuing operations of the investee, among other factors. Although the Company believes its assumptions and estimates are reasonable, the investee’s actual performance compared with the estimates could produce different results and lead to additional impairment charges in future periods. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company did not recognize any impairment charges related to its 50% or less owned companies.
Income Tax, Policy [Policy Text Block]
Income Taxes. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company’s effective income tax rate of 27.2% was primarily due to non-deductible Spin-off-related expenses reimbursed to SEACOR Holdings and losses of foreign subsidiaries not benefited. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company’s effective income tax rate of 32.8% was primarily due to non-deductible expenses associated with the Company’s participation in SEACOR Holdings’ share award plans and losses of foreign subsidiaries not benefited.
Deferred Gains [Policy Text Block]
Deferred Gains. The Company has sold certain equipment to its 50% or less owned companies, entered into vessel sale-leaseback transactions with finance companies, and provided seller financing on sales of its equipment to third parties and its 50% or less owned companies. A portion of the gains realized from these transactions were deferred and recorded in deferred gains and other liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Loss Per Common Share of SEACOR
Loss Per Share. Basic loss per common share of the Company is computed based on the weighted average number of common shares issued and outstanding during the relevant periods. Diluted loss per common share of the Company is computed based on the weighted average number of common shares issued and outstanding plus the effect of potentially dilutive securities through the application of the treasury stock and if-converted method. Dilutive securities for this purpose assumes restricted stock grants have vested and common shares have been issued pursuant to the conversion of the 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, diluted earnings per common share of SEACOR Marine excluded 4,070,500 common shares issuable pursuant to the Company’s 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes as the effect of their inclusion in the computation would be anti-dilutive. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, diluted earnings per common share of SEACOR Marine also excluded 120,693 shares of restricted stock as the effect of their inclusion in the computation would be anti-dilutive.
New Accounting Pronouncements
New Accounting Pronouncements. On May 28, 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The core principal of the new standard is that a company will recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new standard is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and early adoption is permitted. The Company will adopt the new standard on January 1, 2018 and expects to use the modified retrospective approach upon adoption. The Company is currently determining the impact, if any, the adoption of the new accounting standard will have on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Principal versus agent considerations of the new standard with respect to the Company’s vessel management services and pooling arrangements may result in a gross presentation of operating revenues and expenses compared with its current net presentation for results from managed and pooled third party equipment.
On February 25, 2016, the FASB issued a comprehensive new leasing standard, which improves transparency and comparability among companies by requiring lessees to recognize a lease liability and a corresponding lease asset for virtually all lease contracts. It also requires additional disclosures about leasing arrangements. The new standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and requires a modified retrospective approach to adoption. Early adoption is permitted. The Company has not yet determined what impact, if any, the adoption of the new standard will have on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
On August 26, 2016, the FASB issued an amendment to the accounting standard which amends or clarifies guidance on classification of certain transactions in the statement of cash flows, including classification of proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, debt prepayments, debt extinguishment costs and contingent consideration payments after a business combination. This new standard is effective for the Company as of January 1, 2018 and early adoption is permitted. The Company has not yet determined what impact, if any, the adoption of the new standard will have on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
On October 24, 2016, the FASB issued a new accounting standard, which requires companies to account for the income tax effects of intercompany sales and transfers of assets other than inventory. The new standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 31, 2017 and requires a modified retrospective approach to adoption. The Company has not yet determined what impact, if any, the adoption of the new standard will have on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
On November 17, 2016, the FASB issued an amendment to the accounting standard which requires that restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total cash amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted.
