To say that boating is in Eddy’s genes is an understatement. Eddy grew up in the yachting industry capital of the world (Fort Lauderdale) as the son of Christopher “Kit” Denison, founder of Denison Marine, and grandson of Frank Denison, founder of Broward Marine. From an early age Eddy would spend summers working at Denison Marine sweeping the stockroom with brother Bob helping out around the yard doing any odd jobs that paid him enough money to hit the snack machines.
Eddy attended Arizona State University for his freshman year and then transferred to the University of Miami, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in History along with a minor in Secondary Education. After college, he attended the San Diego Golf Academy in Chandler, Arizona, where he received a 2-year degree in Complex Business Operations and Golf Course Management.
He then moved back to Fort Lauderdale, where he started his golf management and teaching career at Arrowhead Golf Club and then Grande Oaks Golf Club. Five years into his golf career, a freak sneezing incident ruptured 3 discs in his back, abruptly ending his teaching career and sidelining him indefinitely from playing golf in the future.
Eddy spent the next 6 years opening and running a dance studio with his wife until he decided to join Denison Yacht Sales in the summer of 2013. Eddy hopes to continue the Denison tradition in the yachting industry and one day pass along his knowledge to his children.
Eddy is married to Ariann, a choreographer for the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, and they have three lovely children, Maia, Jaxson and Caden.
