Derecktor Shipyards: Not Just Capability, Expertise
Since its foundation in 1947, Derecktor Shipyards has become renowned for its excellence in the construction, repair and refit of yachts, commercial and military vessels. Nowadays, with four facilities covering the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. from Maine to South Florida, Derecktor Shipyards provides vessel owners and operators everything they need from marina space to megayacht construction.
Along these seven decades, Derecktor has made a name for itself on the global yachting stage, highlighted by the extraordinary launch of the M/Y Cakewalk (now Aquila), which at 2,998 tons, is the largest yacht ever built in the U.S.
With two South Florida-based premises (Dania Beach and Fort Pierce), Derecktor is widely recognized within the superyacht industry as the preferred choice for expert repair, complete refit or any conceivable service need. Show More
