Superyacht refit and repair company Derecktor Shipyards adds George Whitehouse as sales manager for the company Dania Beach and Fort Pierce facilities.

“Derecktor’s commitment to the industry is commendable and its reputation is legendary,” Whitehouse says. “We welcome the global fleet of megayachts and super sailing yachts to come experience the recent facility improvements in Dania Beach and learn more about the exciting future of our Fort Pierce yard.” 

With an extensive background in the superyacht industry and experience as a superyacht captain, Whitehouse brings a stellar reputation for developing, redesigning, and managing large-scale projects. As sales manager, Whitehouse will oversee the sales team, develop and execute sales strategies, manage key accounts, and establish new client relationships. 

“We are excited to have George on the team and have high expectations for him,” says Paul Derecktor, president of Derecktor Shipyards. “We know the superior quality of our work and believe the expertise of our staff far exceeds other facilities. George can help us build and foster relationships within the industry to not only grow our business, but also to position Derecktor as a valuable US resource to the world market.” 

Established in 1947, Derecktor Shipyards has been involved in the construction, repair and refit of yachts, workboats, military ships and hybrid vessels. Today, four Derecktor facilities span the eastern seaboard of the US, offering everything from marina space and routine maintenance to major refit and megayacht construction.
