A commitment to craft, customers and detail.

Over the last half-century, Ft. Lauderdale has become the undisputed capital of megayacht service, repair and refit in the United States. There is no doubt that Derecktor of Florida has been one of the driving forces behind this development.

Today they are widely recognized as one of the most complete refit facilities on the East Coast of the U.S., regularly handling multiple vessels of up to 200 ft. They have continually upgraded and improved their shipyard to lead the market.

While the yachts and equipment have changed over time, their near-legendary commitment to craft, customers and detail has not.

Doing a job right requires the proper equipment, and the Florida facility has been specifically designed and equipped for servicing today's ultra-sophisticated megayachts. From their deep water, protected site to the 900 ton mobile hoist, Derecktor are set up to handle virtually any project with minimum stress and maximum efficiency. Combining their site and refit savvy, it's easy to see why they've become Florida's refit central for yachts up to 60m.

It's not only great weather that brings many of the world's finest yachts to Ft. Lauderdale. Derecktor Florida is widely recognised as the choice for expert repair, complete refit or any conceivable service need. Our combination of experience, professional project management, and never-ending attention to detail have created an environment that produces unrivalled results and customer benefit.

Pinmar USA has been a longstanding partner of Derecktor having completed a large number of major refit projects on some very prestigious superyachts in Dania Beach.
