The world’s great yachts are defined by a number of rarefied attributes. Size. Grace. Grandeur. Not least among these is exquisite joinery work – the rich cabinetry, decking and paneling that traditionally has been found on yachts from only the very best builders. Now one of these great boat builders is taking their talent on the road, so to speak – to residential and commercial clients who appreciate custom craftsmanship from actual craftsmen. For that’s what you’ll find at Derecktor; cabinetmakers, metalworkers and joiners (many second or even third generation) whose work surpasses excellence and approaches art.
Far from ordinary, furniture from Derecktor Craftsmen reflects the heritage of the builder. Beautiful, yet strong enough to survive the rigors of service at sea, these pieces will grace any shore side room for a lifetime. Choose one of our elegant designs, or set your own course and have us create something unique.
Look closely (or even not-so closely) and you will notice a difference in our built-in work: it is actually built-in. Not just fitted into a space like a good deal of so called custom cabinetry. Why the difference? Simple, for over 60 years we’ve been building fine custom interiors for yachts of all shapes and sizes. And nothing is as truly built-in as the cabinetry on a yacht. Except, of course, the custom work you will get from Derecktor Craftsmen.
Most makers of custom furniture and cabinetry have a simple solution for acquiring the hardware they may need. They buy it. Off the shelf. And while that may be adequate in some instances we don’t think that’s good enough when something special is called for. At Derecktor Craftsmen we have the expertise and experience to create even the most sophisticated hardware, both functional and decorative. Our metal crafters have a long history of innovation in building mechanisms that do the job – and do it elegantly.
Yacht or not, the world’s finest joinerwork is now available to you. To see just what we mean, contact Derecktor Craftsmen.
