Conrad Vanderlely was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Conrad’s passion for boating and marine life came at an early age. “My father began his own business, Offshore Marine in Fort Lauderdale, catering to high-performance engines and marine rigging,” Conrad said.
He remembers spending his summers learning the basic knowledge of boat construction and marine engines. Having been born and raised on the waters of Fort Lauderdale, Conrad begged for his first boat at 12 years old. It was then with his 15′ Boston Whaler that Conrad knew he wanted to have a career in the boating industry. He was always fascinated by marine life and is an avid surfer and free diver.
“I knew early that I belonged in the boating world and dedicated my free time to learning everything I could about fishing, marine life, and the yachting industry.”
Conrad graduated Dean’s list from Nova Southeastern University with a degree in Environmental Science. Expanding his awareness of the environment, Conrad focused his interest in sustainability.
His passion, dedication, and industry knowledge are outstanding. Conrad brings with him an integrity that centers on doing the right thing, the right way. Understanding his clients’ needs, experience level, and lifestyle allows him to provide truly personal service based on a relationship, not just a sale. His love of all things boating, focus, drive, and attention to detail make him a great asset to Denison Yacht Sales.
