Biography

Byron Shirley grew up with sailboats, both in his native France, but also in the Caribbean and on the West Coast of the US. Along with having enjoyed living aboard a Gulfstar 44 and a custom 76 footer, he has been boating, racing, and doing deliveries.

Finally he followed that natural path into the boating business. A yacht broker since 2010, he’s worked for Beneteau sailboat and powerboat dealerships and sold over a hundred brokerage boats.

As a resident of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest since 2014, Byron has learned what it takes to boat in this beautiful boating region. He wants to help clients find what boats are going to be better fits for them than others, to steer you through some of the potential benefits and pitfalls of certain boat layouts and designs. The best experience is one where his clients experience minimal surprises during the sales process and their boat ownership, are able to negotiate a fair and balanced deal: The right boat, at the right price.

To this end, Byron Shirley is known for his integrity and thoroughness, and supporting his clients during and after the sale. Byron is delighted to work within the Denison Yachting family, which carries the same value.
