Biography

Growing up on Lake St. Clair in Michigan, Denise has been boating since she was 12. Starting out on small runabouts and the family cabin cruiser, she quickly knew this was the life for her. Her first job was in a marina at the age of 14, and her first business was at 16 when she decided to start a small wash-down service in the local marinas in and around Gross Point, Michigan. The small wash-down service quickly grew, as did her experience and passion for boating.

In the early '80s, Denise took one look at Marina del Rey, California and she was hooked. Soon to follow was a successful full-service yacht management company, and learning to sail. Sailing took over, and Denise sold the business to go on an adventure. Her adventures led her to the Caribbean, where she made her living doing charters and deliveries.

In recent years, Denise has become an active sailboat racer both locally and internationally as well as the producer and builder of a 24’ club racer called a Martin 242. Today she is a leader in the boating community of Marina del Rey and enjoying every bit of her career as a yacht salesperson.

Denise was recognized as the 2010 ASMBYC Yachtsman of the Year. “Helping people find and live their boating dreams is where I am most happy,” she says.

Most recently, Denise was the 2019 recipient of the Peggy Slater Memorial Trophy. This prestigious trophy is awarded annually by the Southern California Yachting Association to a female involved in the sport of sailing who best demonstrates outstanding contributions to the enhancement of women’s participation in sailing or individual achievement in the sport of sailing.
