Keegan Garner has spent his life on the water. He grew up in the Great Lakes region in Ohio, then migrated south to West Palm Beach, Florida where he graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a degree in communications and psychology. However, before pursuing his current career in yacht sales, Keegan first went on to pursue another passion, running track professionally, breaking four minutes in the mile and achieving the Olympic standard in the 5K.
Taking that stamina and determination to the yachting industry, in 2008, Keegan become a licensed broker and joined the Denison Yacht Sales team.
Keegan sums up his life as a yacht broker, “I absolutely love selling boats. I love the people. I love the process. I love the product. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities. I can’t wait to meet my next client!”

My brother introduced me to Keegan Garner because he bought his yacht from him. It was very nice working with Keegan in selling my 38 ft cruiser. Keegan worked long and hard to find the perfect buyer who offered me a decent price. Keegan made sure that the seller and buyer were both happy at the end of the deal, all the way through to the final transaction. I would strongly recommend Keegan when trying to sell your yacht or purchasing one as well!

Keegan Garner is a true professional. He delivered a service well beyond my expectations. With a tight time schedule he was able to close the sale on time even though he was traveling. He always returned my calls promptly, never misrepresented facts and arranged for inspections quickly. Above all, Keegan was always fair to both buyer and seller. As a buyer he always helped me not to get unreasonable with my offers if I wanted to buy the boat. With the seller, he kept him informed of the boat’s problems and how to make reasonable adjustments to the price in order to close the sale. In my opinion, he was fair to both parties.
After the sale, Keegan took all necessary steps to make sure that the boat was delivered on time and helped making the necessary arrangements to transport it. He was able to deliver the boat the exact day that we planned “My Birthday”. What a great birthday present, Keegan, you made my day!!

Working with Keegan at Denison Yacht Sales has been a pleasure. He sold my 2010 Intrepid 35WA in 48 hours. Keegan was also able to care for and sell my 2010 245 Intrepid as well.
I highly recommend Keegan as a professional yacht broker.

The folks at Denison Yacht Sales, particularly my yacht broker Keegan Garner, are consummate professionals.
I’ve purchased several yachts over the past 20 years and have never had a more pleasurable and seamless transaction. They go out of their way to put the customer first! That’s saying a lot these days.
- Edward Rossario // Intrepid Owner
“Keegan Garner is an absolute professional! From start to finish I knew he had my best interests in hand, and he proved it time and again with his thoroughness, attention to detail and by always going the extra mile.
Keegan put in a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort to ensure that my Intrepid sold for a price that was fair to both myself and the buyer. I would use Keegan’s services again the next time I sell a boat, and I certainly recommend him to anyone looking to do the same.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the hard work that you did on the closing of the sale of my boat. From our first conversation in September, you really made me feel like you were going to get my boat sold quickly and for as good a price that the market conditions would allow.
I would guess that you don’t often get a buyer within 3 weeks of listing a boat and then not be able to close the deal because the boat cannot be moved from its slip. Your dedication to this deal from the day that I told you the boat was not moveable because of the low water level at our lake was tremendous.
You were instrumental in keeping the buyer appraised of our situation on a daily basis. You worked diligently with Cindy and I to bring this deal to fruition by year end per my request.
If I ever run across anyone looking to sell a boat in the future, they will hear only one name and company of reference from me: Keegan Gamer and Denison Yacht Sales.
Again, thank you for all of your dedication and conviction to the sale of my boat.
- John Opstad
Keegan, as a real estate broker, I have to say you were extremely professional and diligent in your efforts. You are to be commended on your follow-up, which I will tell you after searching for nearly 2 years for a boat you are the first to follow up like this.
I can imagine how tough it is to keep customers loyal and to continue to work as hard as you do when it is what seems to be an open territory with boat sales, however I would recommend you to anyone looking to sell or purchase a boat. I doubt very much this would have happened otherwise.
With so many boats on the market it is very easy to forget what you are looking at and your follow-up kept this boat on the front of my mind.
- Cindy Quade // Sea Ray Owner
I was very pleased with how professionally and effectively my yacht broker Keegan Garner handled the sale of our Intrepid. I didn’t have much available time to get involved in the process, so I particularly appreciated the time and effort that Keegan devoted to selling our boat. I felt that he was looking out for us.
- Dick Hobbs
I am a loyal customer of Denison Yacht Sales. My yacht broker, Keegan Garner, sold my boat before I had a chance to bring it to Ft. Lauderdale. He was personally invested to ensure the sale was successful at every step.
Keegan expeditiously and professionally addressed each detail including scheduling a professional photo shoot, detailing the boat for the sea trial, addressing repair items from the survey, and completing all documentation.
I feel we now have a long-term partnership built on trust and respect.
- Amy Speth
My wife and I recently purchased a boat through Denison Yacht Sales with the assistance of our yacht broker, Keegan Garner.
As you can imagine the process can be stressful at times, but we found Keegan to be extremely professional and attentive to our needs. He was quite knowledgeable when answering our questions and concerns, and his promptness in doing so was commendable.
We would recommend his services and that of Denison Yacht Sales. They made the process of buying a yacht as smooth and seemless as possible.

I would like to thank you for the great job you did selling my 390 Intrepid Yacht. It was a pleasure dealing with such a professional yacht broker that knows everything about boating – specifically about Intrepids. I would highly recommend you to all my friends when it comes to selling or buying any boat. Thank you again for a great job done.
- Silvio Cardoso, 390 Intrepid Owner
Keegan Garner sold my 2010 Intrepid 35WA in less than 6 weeks! My experience with Keegan was very pleasant. He is very professional, smart, and able to get the deal done. I only have positive things to say and will continue to do business with Denison Yacht Sales in the future.
- Sherwood Sheehan, Owner 2010 Intrepid 35WA
“I purchased my 2010 Intrepid 35WA through Denison Yacht Sales with Keegan Garner. Keegan’s expertise and yachting industry knowledge made my boat buying experience a pleasurable one. Keegan assisted in every step of the way from offer to closing. Denison Yacht Sales proved to be a professional, efficient resource satisfying all of my boat buying needs.”
- Mike Nicolosi, Delray Beach, FL - Intrepid Owner
“My yacht broker, Keegan Garner, is a true pleasure to deal with. Initially I had hesitations about buying a Sea Ray in the U.S. I’m from Russia, and wanted my new yacht to be delivered to Cyprus; of course there are risks involved.
English is not my first language, I speak Russian. Through the entire process, Keegan was very patient with me. He was always very kind to talk to. He helped me with the survey and the sea trial of the Sea Ray I wanted to purchase, and I was very pleased with all the steps during and after closing, especially all the work required to C.E. certify the boat and ship to Cyprus.
I am looking forward to using Keegan and Denison Yacht Sales in the future.”
- Anatoly, Sea Ray Owner
“Thank you for all your hard work in selling the Doral. Both of my experiences working with you have been very positive, once buying my Meridian and selling my Doral. Your patience, and work ethic made things much easier on my end. Look forward to working with you again in the future.”
- Chris Nichols, Meridian Yachts
I am writing in reference to a Sea Ray I recently purchased through yacht broker Keegan Garner. It is not easy nor advisable to purchase a boat long distance (I live in Pennsylvania); however, I was fortunate to have Keegan working on my behalf. I must say I cannot imagine anyone working harder. Keegan negotiated diligently on my behalf and I believe I got an excellent deal.
I am pleased with the boat and more than satisfied with the professionalism and skill exhibited by Mr. Garner. I am sure he would be an excellent asset to any business and I would not hesitate to recommend Keegan to anyone.
- Paul B. Burry, Sea Ray Owner
“There are only positive things to say about Keegan Garner. He was great from the first day I met him, and the first day he listed my 2007 52′ Sea Ray Sundancer. He’s among the best yacht brokers out there. He actually cares and looks out for your best interests.”
- Marc Zeitler, Sea Ray
“Keegan Garner and Denison Yacht Sales provided exactly what you as a seller need and hope for in a yacht broker. For us that can be defined as “Market Intel”, a plan that was implemented, and lastly communication / updates.
We did not have to chase down Keegan for follow-up after a showing. Immediately after a Showing I would have feedback from Keegan. The process and sale was handled professionally, without hiccups or “last minute” changes and obstacles that always mean dollars out of pocket.
I would without reservation hire and recommend Keegan Garner and Denison Yacht Sales.”
- Andrew Robinson, Intrepid Yachts Owner
A couple of months ago, my boss Mr. Giorgio Dissegna and I went to Miami in order to attend some business meetings. Mr. Dissegna also wanted to have the opportunity for finding a boat which had the following characteristics: comfortable, fast, nice and, most important, according to his budget.
We went to visit at least 5 boat dealers. Unfortunately, when we met Keegan, because we didn’t arrange things with enough time, we only had some minutes to speak with him. However, we had more attention and we felt more comfortable (just in a few minutes) than in the other places we had been before.
Because of this reason, Mr. Dissegna decided, once we were back in Mexico to keep contact with Keegan and asked him to check out some boats for him. We finally made a deal with a wonderful Baja 2004. We received the boat at Progreso, Yucatan, our closest port. Yesterday, Mr. Dissegna saw the boat. He told me that the boat is beautiful and everything inside the cabin looks like new.
Keegan and I were working hard for finding the right boat for Giorgio and finally Giorgio got it. I do really appreciate Keegan’s assistance and kindness. Giorgio will take his first ride on the boat today and for sure he will enjoy it.

Working with Keegan was a tremendous pleasure. Keegan turned what I thought was going to be a monumental task into an enthusiastic cake walk. He found us a great deal on a Formula and we closed in less than 40 days in order to sync with vacation schedules.
There is no way to describe his dedicated customer focus and attention to detail, especially our budget and timeline. He visited marinas, sent back pictures, made offers, negotiated the best price and terms I can imagine. Keegan did not stop after the deal closed.
Keegan found us an affordable marina, made sure our Florida and Coast Guard documentation was complete and made sure our punch-list got done before we arrived in Florida. Keegan even got the new name designed and on the transom. All this was accomplished without a hitch, from South Carolina. It is no question at all that we’ll ask Keegan to find us our retirement yacht.
