Biography

ABOUT DAVE

Raised in a boating family in Newport Beach, California, Dave has been sailing and boating since his parents first pushed him off the beach in his Naples Sabot at age 6. Since then, he has been a competitive sailor and boating enthusiast for more than 40 years.

Dave's sailing accomplishments include multiple PHRF Championships on both coasts as helmsman and tactician, Etchell’s fleet championships on both coasts as tactician, as well as 10 Transpacs (one with a record set) and Pacific Cups. He sales frequently as tactician on a S. California Farr 40 and currently manages and does tactics for the TP52 Nimbus for a Mexican owner.

While Dave has raced sailboats most of his life, he didn’t begin working in the marine industry full time until he landed the sales and marketing manager position with the world’s premiere sailboat design house, Farr Yacht Design.

After a time there, he moved back to the west coast and became the general manager for the world's third largest Sea Ray dealer in Newport Beach, Newport Boats. They were also the Meridian, Atlantis, Polar Fishing Boats, and Azimut dealership. Dave distinguished himself by running their most profitable store and maintaining a CSI score of a perfect 10 for the last 14 months of his employment.

The downturn of 2009 ended his tenure there as most of the staff was laid off. He ultimately moved to another local broker, Long Beach Yacht Sales, and quickly became the company's top salesman. Dave was also awarded Salesperson of the Year in 2010 for dollar volume and was second in units sold.

Toward the end of 2011, Dave joined the Denison Yachting team in our Marina del Rey, California location, where he has quickly added many quality listings and focuses on sales and listings in Southern Los Angeles, as well as Orange and San Diego counties.

In 2012, he opened the Newport Beach, CA office for Denison Yachting and continues to be their top seller in the area. He now travels the country extensively selling yachts in every corner and has logged well over 250,000 miles navigating the world’s oceans and is ready to help you realize your boating dreams.
