Since launching his first maritime-related enterprise in high school, a scuba diving/salvage business, Ted Lahey has made a lifetime commitment to the marine and yachting industry. Post-college, he was employed by a Connecticut-based yacht rigging company that gave him access to some of the most competitive race boat programs on the East Coast.

Ted continues to be a competitive sailor, having joined the New York Yacht Club (RI), Nantucket Yacht Club (MA), and Pequot Yacht Club (CT).  His sense of entrepreneurialism and passion for the industry was further cemented with the purchase of Essex Boat Works in 1993. His 23 years at the helm there taught Ted the value of building and maintaining client relationships, successful employee management, dedication, and hard work.

Most recently, Ted transitioned from the service-oriented business to yacht sales with The Hinckley Co., working directly with the CEO to successfully open and operate a new Connecticut office in 2015. He also added significant value to the company by selling at least one new yacht each quarter for over two years while he was there.

This experience, coupled with his industry knowledge and connections, gives Ted a definitive advantage in making the yacht buying /selling experience both professional and enjoyable. He is very excited about coming onboard at Denison Yachting and is committed to bringing the same enthusiasm and attention to detail that he has accrued over these years to your yacht brokerage needs.
