U.S. yard Derecktor Dania has signed a contract with Shoreline Foundation Inc. to lengthen the piers used by its 900-ton Cimolai mobile boat hoist by 4.5 metres (15 feet).
The project, engineered by Cummins Cederberg in Miami, will allow the shipyard to utilise the lifting capacity of the existing hoist and permit vessels up to 67 metres (220 feet) in length overall to routinely hauled ashore.
The pile-driving crane equipment for the project is provided by Beyel Brothers of Fort Pierce, neighbours of the new Derecktor Fort Pierce shipyard located in St. Lucie County, Florida.
“The expansion allows for a greater number of the large yachts frequenting Port Everglades to use the shipyard and provides another hauling option for the South Florida market,” James Brewer, director of business development, said.
The project, which began on 1st August, is expected to be completed by 30th September, but the shipyard’s hauling operations will not be adversely affected during construction.
Founded in 1947, Derecktor Shipyards has since become a worldwide leader for excellence in the construction, repair and refit of yachts, commercial and military vessels. Today, four Derecktor facilities span the East Coast of the U.S. from Maine to South Florida, offering vessel owners and operators everything from marina space to superyacht/megayacht construction.
