Hi this is Bob Denison. I’m excited to share with you some of the things that the team at Denison Yachting accomplished in June of 2021 and I am going to jump right into the sales part. 

So in June 2021, we sold this many boats (87). Good job, everybody. Huge number and it looks like just a number on a video, but it’s more than that. It’s a lot of work by our brokers, our closing team and each one of those families that bought a boat or a yacht this month. It was a huge decision and we were really, really excited to be a part of that journey. A few specifically: a 51 brand new Beneteau Oceanis that Matthew Morrison sold – awesome guy. We’re really, really excited about that one.

On the bigger front, Kurt Bosshart sold a boat: 185 foot Oceanfast, and that was the biggest sale of the month. There was a few other exciting ones that week actually, we had three boats over 150 ft. The other was Bruce Schattenburg closed on a 157 Trinity and Alex G. Clark closed on a 150 Richmond called Excellence. We’re really happy and proud of all of them and excited about the adventures that those boats will take those families on.

On the listings front, we picked up a few great listings this month. One of my favorites is Abbracci, she’s a 180 ft Heesen listed centrally with Thom Conboy and Chris Collins. We also just listed a 96 San Lorenzo 2021 – also with Alex G. Clark, as well as 92 Viking convertible listed by Spencer Markatos in Palm Beach. Great boat, awesome broker, and we’re really, really excited about that.

Two listings this month have told us that they are open to taking Cryptocurrency directly. That’s Mizu, the 174 ft Oceanfast listed with Will Noftsinger, as well as a brand new 117 ft Crescent called Crescent Lady up in Seattle with Ari Sherr. If you have some Dogecoin laying around or Bitcoin or Ethereum, let us know because those owners are very much willing to have that conversation.

Two of the things that happened this month that I was really excited about: One of them was the cover of PMY was actually a photograph shot by our very own Drew Offerdahl of a 39 Bertram. And if you don’t know Drew, you should. He is just one of those really talented guys that not only played college football but also has been featured on the cover of magazine, also is a great musician, also is a great yacht broker, also is a great all-around guy and also owns a really cute dog, most days. 

The other thing is FRANK magazine. We launched this, very excited about it. It is our very first-ever corporate magazine, and we try to do it a little bit differently. It’s an offbeat print magazine that uncovers human interest stories that give yachting its passion and breathe new life into clever ideas. Contributors highlight the humble, celebrate entrepreneurial spirit, and showcase daring adventures.

I hope you guys like it. If you want a copy, let us know, also can be found online.
