“
My brother and I started working in the yard
at the age of seven. My father believed the
only way to become a boat builder of any
worth was to experience every trade from
the ground up.”

- PASSION FOR BUILDING BOATS
Derecktor was founded in 1947 by Bob Derecktor, who was well known for speaking
his mind, for caring deeply about the art of yacht design and for perfecting the craft of
boat building. Derecktor soon grew from one yard to three: Robert E. Derecktor, Inc.,
Derecktor of Florida and Derecktor Shipyards Conn., LLC. Although technology has
advanced and facilities have greatly expanded, the yard’s passion for boat building
still continues with Bob’s sons, Paul and Tom Derecktor. Today Derecktor has
delivered over two hundred and fifty vessels; specializing in aluminum, steel and

“
I was especially impressed with the quality
of the steel hull for the 85.6 meter motor
yacht – I have not seen better metal work.”
–Ron Holland
Cr aftsmanship
Generations of craftsmen, lofters, joiners, metal workers and shipwrights have
passed along their skills and experience creating an atmosphere of dedication that
is truly rare to find. Even in today’s high tech world, craftsmanship is still the one
essential ingredient to creating a superbly finished yacht. Evidence of Derecktor’s
uncompromised craftsmanship is noticeable the moment you set foot on one of our
two hundred and fifty delivered vessels.

“
281 foot Cakewalk new construction
I don’t ever start with a template,” says Heywood. “I just think, what is the
eye-catching feature of Carinthia VII. It’s the definite, flowing lines and what
I term the female forms. Because she’s a gentle, curved – I like to think –
exquisite design. So all I have to do in the new design is to bear that in mind;
think of flowing lines and sculpted, rounded, organic forms.”
–Tim Heywood
E xcellence
Seeds of the 281ft Cakewalk project under construction at Derecktor can be found in one
of Tim Heywood’s earlier designs: the 319ft Carinthia VII. “The owner saw the boat and said
to his captain, ‘I think I’d like to talk to the designer of that boat,’” Heywood recalls. “I went
to meet with him and I’m pleased to say we got on quite well. The owner hired Heywood
to design his new yacht in collaboration with Azure Naval Architects partners Hugo van
Wieringen and Diederik van der Hoek, their team in The Netherlands and the American
interior designer Liz Dalton. Once the design was complete, finding the right shipyard was
easy. The previous Cakewalk had just finished a major refit at Derecktor Florida. The owner
knew he had found that the quality craftsmanship and knowledge base that would enable him
to build his dream in America. This Cakewalk will set a new standard in excellence.

“
This is my third new build project (The other two were in
Europe) and I’d say that the workmanship here is as good
as or better than what is produced in many European
yards.”

“
A lot of great boats have come out of here and
of course we’re proud of that. But we’re equally
proud of the people – the people who started the
yard, their children and the others who continue
with it today. That may be the best testament to
what my father began.”
