A dynamic, well-respected professional and a passionate yachtsman, Bruce has more than three decades of experience in all aspects of the global yachting industry. A native of California, Bruce grew up in Santa Cruz, where he enjoyed offshore sailboat racing, surfing, and diving in Monterey Bay.

After college, Bruce was hired by Fraser Yachts in San Diego, becoming the top-selling West Coast broker at the age of 26. In 1986, he moved to Fraser’s office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, traveling to Europe and the Caribbean to inspect yachts and builders while furthering his knowledge of the superyacht market.

In 1999, Bruce became Managing Director/Partner of The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals, where he managed a "fleet" of luxury charter yachts from 60' to over 200'. Following The Sacks Group’s merger with International Yacht Collection (IYC), Bruce moved to yacht sales, charter and management with Y.CO USA as Director of U.S. Operations. He later joined Allied Marine, where he successfully worked to develop its charter and superyacht operations, and also opened their newest showroom in Fort Lauderdale.

Denison Yachting is pleased to now have Bruce heading up its Superyacht Division, located at The Quay in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Bruce is dedicated to growing the company’s Charter Division and Superyacht Division, supported by the company’s strong global presence of 21 offices worldwide and respected reputation of the Denison family name.
