60-Year Yachting Heritage

With family roots in the yachting industry running 60 years deep, you can be well-assured when you are doing business with Denison Yacht Sales, you’re doing business with a firm that plans on staying around.

The Denison family first entered the yachting industry when Frank Denison founded Broward Marine in 1948. Within 10 years Broward Marine became the largest employer in Broward County, Florida, and quickly opened up another shipyard in Saugatuck, Michigan.

For the last half of the 20th Century, Broward Marine constructed more luxury yachts over 60′ than any other yacht manufacturer in the world. Shortly after Frank sold the family business in 1999, Frank’s grandson, Bob Denison took over the helms of the family’s brokerage company, Denison Yacht Sales.

Avoid Middle Management Hassles

Middle management sucks. As a Denison Yacht Sales broker you won’t need to hassle with multiple levels of management, annoying office politics, or delays associated with several layers of bosses. Denison brokers enjoy clearly defined roles, easy closing processes, and direct contact with ownership.

New Boat Opportunities

As a new boat dealer, Denison Yacht Sales enjoys the benefits of representing several new boat lines, including: Beneteau Swift Trawlers, Beneteau Flyer G.T.s, Beneteau Barracuda, Cantiere delle Marche, Contender Boats, Greenline Hybrid, Fountaine Pajot, Mondo Marine, Monte Carlo Yachts, Privilege Marine, Dufour Yachts, and Pirelli Yacht Tenders.

Take Advantage of Competitive Advantages

As a Denison broker, you can take advantage of Denison’s competitive advantages, including our ability to take in trades, proprietary marketing solutions, international advertising, and other confidential strategies that are unique to Denison Yacht Sales.

No Drama

Corporate Values & Company Culture is important. Denison Yacht Sales carefully chooses brokers that are a good fit with our current team and culture. Denison’s culture tends to attract yacht brokers that are inherently honest, easy to work with, humble, and trusting. Denison strongly believes nice people working together dramatically improves quality of life, and reduces stress and drama in the office.

Enjoy a Pay Increase With Larger Commissions

Denison recognizes that marketing – no matter how good it might be – only provides a portion of yacht brokerage activity. Most yacht owners make their buying or selling decision based on the person, not the firm. Its the countless hours of research, honest conversation, and advice rooted in integrity that builds trust with a yacht owner, not the pretty logo on your shirt.

Many closings will be a direct result of your hard work and personal investments you’ve made with faithful clients over the years. Denison provides a simple and fair commission structure to reward you for your years of dedication with existing clients. This commission structure applies to all closings generated that are independent of Denison marketing – even applying to new clients you meet on the docks, and referrals from friends and existing clients.
