Derecktor getting new lift

ADVERTISEMENT

Derecktor of Florida is in the process of acquiring a 200-ton Travelift. The lift will replace a 150-ton Travelift that has been in service at the yard for 30 years and was sold to a commercial ferry operator in Tortola, BVI.

The new lift is scheduled to be installed by September.

“Our intent is to offer our services to a wider range of smaller yachts in addition to the megayacht community served by our 900 ton machine,” James Brewer, business development at Derecktor Shipyards, said.
