Derecktor announces the purchase of the historic Robinhood Marina Center in Georgetown, Maine in a partnership between Paul Derecktor and his longtime friend and associate John Koenig, a marina owner/operator from Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Following the sale in March Derecktor hired Neil Collins, a veteran boatyard operator from Portland, Maine as general manager. Neil grew up on the coast of Maine and has tremendous experience, having owned and restored a number of sailboats over the years. He and his family cruised from Maine to South America over two years aboard a 39′ sailboat before serving as Systems Head at the Maine Yacht Center in Portland.
Robinhood Marine Center, which includes 17,000 square feet of storage area, 77 slips, a general store, an on-site library and museum and the Osprey restaurant is to be renamed Derecktor/Robinhood, will continue to operate in much the same way as previously. “We respect the historic nature of the site and seek to preserve it.
Changes will be incremental and will be dictated by the market – for example, a bigger lift is possible but only if it can be integrated without harming the ambience of the place” said Paul Derecktor.
“We look forward to working with the local community to build on the contribution that Robinhood has made here over the years” said John Koenig.
