Derecktor Shipyards of Connecticut has some very big news for the marine community. This spring the yard will put its’ newly expanded dry dock to work. The dock will allow the yard to fully service vessels up to 4000 long tons, 400 feet (122 meters) in length, 82 feet (25 meters) in beam and 20 feet (6 meters) draft. The expanded dry dock will also provide a seamless method of moving these large vessels from the water onto the repair apron or into the yard’s main building via the dock and a system of air casters. The expanded dry dock will greatly increase the yard’s capacity for repair and refit of multiple vessels during peak periods.

Steve Shaw, the Derecktor Service Manager commented that the New dry dock will not only let grow company’s work load but also let it easily transfer large vessels into its 300 foot building for major refits and other big jobs requiring a covered, climate controlled environment. The new dry dock will also make the company far more efficient and cost effective in handling large vessels of all types.

Paul Derecktor, who with his brother Tom Derecktor runs the Derecktor group of shipyards, was enthusiastic about what the new dry dock meant to the company’s business. The dock will also open up new markets for the company especially for the repair business. The dock will include

• 4000 ton dry dock, 650 ton travel lift, 100 ton crane with 120′ boom
