After 25 years with Jones Boat Yard on the Miami River, Cliff DeFreitas has joined Derecktor in Dania Beach as a project manager.

DeFreitas worked at Jones for 25 of the past 28 years, leaving for a short stint at Merrill-Stevens when it was owned by the Westbrooks. He was a vice president when he left in February.

“I had recently moved up to Fort Lauderdale, and it was just time for me to move,” he said.

He started at Derecktor in March.

Based in New York, Derecktor’s South Florida facility on the Dania Cutoff Canal just south of Port Everglades has the area’s largest mobile lift, a 900-ton lift built by Cimolai.
