Derecktor Fort Pierce is more than just a state-of-the-art superyacht facility. It’s a destination that offers an unparalleled experience for visiting crew, with many fun activities to get up to while you stay!

With a relaxed Old Florida vibe and a wealth of recreational activities, it’s the perfect place for superyacht crew. Justin Beard, part of the Fort Pierce team, explains:

“Yacht crew who visit Fort Pierce appreciate the laid-back old Florida vibes. From surfing at Fort Pierce Inlet or kiteboarding at South Jetty Park or playing golf at PGA Village – there’s plenty to do during the downtime. There are also plenty of fantastic restaurants and bars within walking distance of the shipyard. In general, Fort Pierce is a place where you can get excellent customer service from the Derecktor team while taking some time to recharge during a yard period. Fort Pierce is close to the Turnpike and I-95 corridor, so day trips to Central or South Florida are possible. And, we have great relationships with South Florida’s highly skilled network of vendors and subcontractors.

Surfing & Watersports

For those who love the water, Fort Pierce is a paradise.

The Fort Pierce Inlet State Park boasts one of the best surf breaks on Florida’s East Coast. The Indian River Lagoon and surrounding waterways are great for stand-up paddleboarding, wakeboarding, and a variety of watersports…
