Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Ari grew up around boats, developing a real passion for being on the water. Early on, he competitively sailed dinghies on Port Philip Bay and ocean raced Farr 40’s and 50’s down the Australian coast.

After winning two back-to-back Australian National Titles sailing aboard 12' yachts, as well as spending three summers in Maine teaching sailing on the Belgrade Lakes, Ari decided to attend the University of Tasmania, studying Nautical Science.

With his experience both on the water and in the classroom solidified, Ari spent the last decade living and working aboard superyachts as a qualified Captain and Chief Officer. He's traveled all over, from the Mediterranean and the Caribbean to New Orleans and Alaska. When he finally decided it was time to settle on terra firma, Ari knew he could use his passion, attention to detail, and expertise to help others find the perfect boat as a yacht broker.

Ari is a member of the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron and is frequently seen sailing on Puget Sound in Seattle. He also loves to be the first person on Lake Washington early in the mornings to go water skiing and wake boarding.

Now with Denison at the company's Seattle office, Ari’s cheerful personality coupled with his true mastery of boating on everything from 30' to 300' + yachts will undoubtedly serve his customers well.
