Fokke grew up in the Netherlands where his Father built him his first boat when he was seven years old. His Dutch first name, “Fokke” is pronounced “Fokka” here in the United States. Throughout his early sailing career, Fokke had the opportunity to race against and with many famous one-design sailors in Europe.

As a young man, Fokke searched everywhere for his first sea going boat and found a 27’ Hillyard Classic Yacht in Weymouth England. He sailed that boat all over the North Sea and eventually sold it, when he decided to search for new horizons in the U.S.

In the U.S., he started his first job in the marine industry in 1980. After working in the service and sales department for a large New England sailboat dealership for 10 years, he moved on to bigger opportunities in Florida.

Although he still is an avid racer, Fokke also has many miles of cruising and yacht delivery experience. Of course, he is always willing to give advice on how best maintain and service your yacht. After spending more than 33 years selling and commissioning yachts in boatyards from Florida to Maine, Fokke is always sought after for advice by both manufacturers and owners.

His customers also include the many brokerage customers who seek him out for information about the many high-quality pre-owned boats that he sells. He specializes in follow-up “house calls” on your boat to make sure that your sailing experience, on a new or used boat, exceeds all your expectations.

Over the years, he has learned how to listen to each client’s needs up and down the East Coast. At his position in South Florida, Fokke eventually became vice president of that company and handled the entire sales and service department. That was when he first saw the opportunity to turn his company into a platinum dealership for Beneteau.

Fokke is also a multiyear winner of many service awards, including the prestigious Beneteau “Top Gun” service award.

Now at Denison Yacht Sales, Fokke’s goal is to find the best boat for you and your family and achieve the best service and customer satisfaction possible.

Fokke can assist you with selling or buying either sailing or motor yachts. Once a yacht is purchased he will assist you with any questions you may have. Over the years, he has made close connections with his clients and he is ready to give you the best experience purchasing or selling your sailing or motor yacht.

Call or write Fokke if you have any questions - he speaks English, Dutch, German and some French.
