Default Fungal genome de novo assembly and scaffolding

We have data of yeast (Yarrowia)sequenced using Illumina paired-end. Each read R1 and R2 has ~41 million reads. Read length is 150 and insert size is 300. I have used velvet for de novo assembly. The highest value of N50: 22726 was obtained for Kmer 93. Total contigs are ~1900. Scaffolding was done using Contiguator. Gapfiller was used to fill the gaps. Closest Yarrowia homolog has a length of ~ 20MB. Using our data I got after gapfilling ~17MB. How to fill the gap of 3MB ? Eagerly awaiting your inputs
