The Combined Advantage - Quality, Diversity, & Service
While each Derecktor yard on the East Coast has its own areas of specialization, they share one major trait - high standards of quality. Our proven, innovative techniques and quality construction have produced yachts that last.
Each yard is independently operated, and the combined strengths of all are available to Derecktor customers. Each year, more than 800 vessels are constructed or repaired by Derecktor Shipyards. Both professional expertise and equipment are shared among the yards with very simple objectives - do quality work, solve problems, and satisfy our customers. A reputation worth keeping.
As the Derecktor yards have grown and developed, so has our ability to serve our customers. With facilities in New York and Florida, one can access Derecktor's capabilities from virtually anywhere on the East Coast of the USA, at any time of year. This convenience has satisfied our clientele for over 25 years.
