I have received the latest information from Doug Morrison, Business Development Manager for Derecktor of Florida. He has advised that Derecktor has some onsite improvements/new travel lift (820 ton) that should be up and running around the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show. The city has also started dredging the Dania Cut to 17’ for completion around February of next year. Below is a brief bit of the Derecktor Florida yard which includes background, services & current capabilities.
Doug's message goes on to explain: "Derecktor Florida has 40 years of experience with service, repair and refit work. The location covers more than 17 acres along the Dania Cut Off Canal, less than 1 mile from the Port Everglades entrance. As South Florida’s most complete marine repair facility, Derecktor Florida caters mainly to power, sail and sportfish yachts and acts as a pole of attraction in the busy Florida waters for a large fleet of cruising and racing yachts in need of repairs or major refits.
