“I want to thank Ned Bruck, who recently helped me buy a small boat for my teenagers. Even though this purchase was far smaller than the yachts he regularly handles, he undertook much time researching various boats for sale in the market on my behalf. Within a week, he sourced a five year old 23′ Boston Whaler with only 50 hours, at a fantastic price. Ned also managed the entire inspection and closing process, and arranged for minor renovations after I took title, making this purchase effortless for me. My kids think I’m a hero, and it’s thanks to Ned.
Ned went beyond the extra mile, and I whole-heartedly recommend Denison Yacht Sales and Ned Bruck to anyone looking for a great deal and hassle-free process.”

My experience with my yacht broker, Ned Bruck of Denison Yacht Sales, exceeded my expectations and cultivated into ownership of my dream yacht.
From the beginning Ned made promises that he kept, went out of his way to meet with me at odd hours, given my tight schedule, and delivered a better deal on my purchase than I imagined, all while helping to sell my yacht at the same time.
Without hesitation and with great enthusiasm, it is my pleasure to recommend my new friend and a man with many years of experience in the yacht business, Ned Bruck.

We looked at a number of boats and decided to purchase a 2012 35′ Regal. Our yacht broker, Ned Bruck, managed the entire process thoroughly and helped make the transaction feel too easy. Throughout he has looked out for our interest.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank my yacht broker. When I started this adventure, I thought I knew enough about boating to make an educated decision on a vessel, how wrong I was.
My yacht broker, Ned Bruck, took endless hours researching with me to find the right boat at absolutely the right price. WOW what an education I received and after over 20 years of boating I thought I knew it all.
Ned not only saved me big money when you directed me into the right boat for my needs, but also larger than I thought I wanted, and I’m so glad you did.
I’m certain this will be the only boat I won’t take a hit on when I sell it in a few years.

A note of thanks for your attention to detail and supreme effort on our behalf to buy our 39 Bertram Sportfish. You kept us informed throughout the whole process and actually closed the deal whist we were on holidays in the Middle East, organized repairs to the boat and all the logistics for shipping to Australia without me ever visiting the States.
The boat is awesome and we love her, and is everything and more that you advised it would be!
I will be recommending you to all my friends all over the world. You are a real asset to Denison Yacht Sales.
Thank you Ned.
- Greg & Julie Tasker // Bertram Owners // Australia
Your deep product knowledge was hard to believe. From getting us the vessel, to arranging for the captain to deliver the boat in Ft. Lauderdale, arranging for dockage, shipping, insurance, documentation and all logistics that went into completing our purchase, and making sure it got to us half way around the world – you did it all!
I will highly recommend you and Denison Yacht Sales to any of my associates here in Japan.

This note is to confirm my 150% satisfaction with my yacht broker, Ned Bruck‘s service and salesmanship. I saw him at the 2011 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show boat show and told him to take my listings of my 36 ‘ Rybovich and 52′ Davis sportish and “presto!” within 2 weeks my Rybovich is now sold and he is working a few “hot” leads on the Davis.
Ned is certainly an asset to your company and represents your yacht brokerage firm well.

“I flew half way across the world from Hong Kong to Savannah, Georgia to buy an immaculate Bertram 43 Convertible. Ned Bruck of Denison Yachts helped me to deal efficiently with the seller, surveys, paperwork and shipping, and got the boat to me in record time. It was a pleasure dealing with Ned and I thoroughly recommend his services.”
- Christopher Tung, Bertram Owner (Hong Kong)
I wanted to take the time today to tell you that we just purchased a 48′ motoryacht with yacht broker Ned Bruck in your office and he was a pleasure to deal with. We were introduced to Ned through our friend Martha Gomez and right from the beginning after speaking with him we felt that we were in great hands.
We are out of the country and only here on weekends so it made his job even more difficult. I was searching for boats and Ned found us the perfect motoryacht for us on his own. His knowledge is incredible and he has gone way beyond what we were expecting in our purchase.
Ned helped us acquire Boat Insurance, and also provided us with a great Captain to take care of our yacht and show us around Biscayne Bay and surrounding areas. We also look forward to going to the Bahamas in the near future.
Ned has made this a great experience for us and has made us clients for life.
- Tony Renda
“Thanks for all the work that went on at your end to secure the deal. It was pleasure working with Ned on this deal & all I can say is you are lucky to have a guy like him on your team (don’t get too carried
away there Ned) but I do mean it you where great to work with.
It was also good to meet you Bob Denison & we look forward to doing more deals in the future with Denison yacht brokers.”
- Col Mc Pherson, Grant Torrens Marine Yacht Brokers, Australia
“I just wanted to take the time to thank you for helping me purchase my new yacht, Fortunata. She is perfect size upgrade from my previous 62′ Sunseeker Tiamo, that you helped me purchase 19 months ago. You not only found me a great boat, but before I closed on the Ferretti you had the Tiamo under contract to your clients from Japan.
I look forward to expanding our cruising to the Bahamas and beyond. I really appreciate the knowledge and patience you had in procuring these sales for me.”
- Bill Campbell, Sunseeker / Ferretti Yacht
“I want to thank you for being the procuring cause of the sale of my 72′ Ferretti, Always Late. Thanks to your professionalism the closing went very smoothly.
I was particularly impressed how you handled the title issues that popped up at the last minute which could have delayed closing for weeks. Thanks to your contacts we closed on schedule.”
