Kevin Frawley was born in San Rafael, California, but spent most of his childhood in Ohio and Michigan prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale in 1992.  He joined the United States Coast Guard in 2001 and spent his first two years of service in the Presidential Honor Guard in Washington, D.C., performing ceremonial duties at the White House, Pentagon and Tomb of the Unknowns as well as performing funeral services at Arlington National Cemetery. Frawley was then assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter ‘Valiant,' a 210’ medium endurance cutter out of Miami Beach.

Onboard 'Valiant', he served as a gunners mate, quartermaster and boarding team member. The Valiant patrolled Caribbean waters conducting drug and migrant interdiction, and was the first U.S. asset to arrive in Port-au-Prince during the 2004 Coup d’état, in which Frawley received the Commandant’s Letter of Commendation.

In the spring of 2004, he volunteered for a one-year deployment to serve onboard the Coast Guard Cutter 'Wrangell,' a 110’ Island class cutter in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Duties on board CGC 'Wrangell' included boarding and inspecting all vessels transiting Iraq waters and protecting the Khor Al Amaya and Al Basrah oil terminals, which were extremely crucial to the Iraqi economy.

Upon completion of this deployment, he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medal. Returning to the United States as a gunners mate 2nd Class in 2005, Frawley was assigned to the CGC 'Sitkinak,' another 110’ cutter out of Miami Beach. Frawley was one of the first responders for the crash of Chalks Flight 101 on December 19, 2005.  For his service onboard 'Sitkinak,' he was awarded the Coast Guard Achievement medal.

During his final year in the U.S. Coast Guard, Frawley began to look for his next career path, and it became clear when he met Bob Denison through a mutual friend. Joining the team that year, when Denison Yachting was still a small operation of less than five, he began selling brokerage boats in the 25’–85’ range.

In 2009, Denison started to represent Selene Yachts and Frawley was selected as general manager of Denison Yachting's first new boat line. This position allowed Frawley to learn a great deal about yacht design and the building process. He traveled China multiple times each year with each new owner to preview, inspect and implement any changes to the yachts. He has continued in brokerage and new boats, handling sales in Denison’s dealership for multiple brands.

Kevin has been married to his high school prom date, Carolyn since 2007. They have four children, Ryan, Dane, Daphne and Rhett. Any time off and weekends are spent roughhousing with the kids, on the water, or playing golf.
