Denison Yachting announced it has hired new Events Manager Keara Bell, as well as Lead Graphic Designer Laura Botu.

Bell will oversee all Denison related events, including boat shows, rendezvous and open houses, and will forge new relationships with key partners. Botu will lead the charge for all company branding and graphics, further strengthening the company’s marketing efforts.

Denison’s new office in Bradenton, FL is located at Twin Dolphin Marina, a strategic location with newer, larger slips, a friendly staff and amenities including a huge pool and one of the area’s great restaurants, Pier 22.

The new office will be led by experienced yacht brokers, Gregg Sommerville and Josh Olsen, who have lived in the area most of their lives.

RMK Merrill-Stevens is preparing for delivery of the new 100 BFMII (100 metric ton lifting capacity) mobile boat hoist. The custom 100-ton Marine Travelift will be in operation later this summer. The new lift will feature a number of innovative features and options designed to maximize operational efficiency. 2-speed hoists will provide increased lifting speeds when the machine is in high demand and in great fluctuating tides, while the wireless remote control will increase operational visibility of the boat, launching piers and surrounding area. In addition, detailed engine information, pressure displays, and load readout indicators are conveniently displayed on a 7″ LCD touchscreen with optical bonding for maximum protection.
