Since 1948, when - on their honeymoon - Frank and Gertrude Denison purchased Dooley’s Dry Dock in Fort Lauderdale, the Denison name has been synonymous with American yachting. From its origins as a defense contractor for the United States Navy, to revolutionizing boat design and construction, the Denison family has built an enduring reputation as experts in the yacht industry.

Today, Denison Yachting is one of South Florida’s largest yacht brokers, representing names like Beneteau, Bertram, and Horizon. Operating 22 marina offices across the country and with a presence in Hong Kong, Denison yacht brokers are well-positioned to service clients across North America and southeast Asia. Denison also specializes in boat loans and yacht financing, along with helping owners secure competitive insurance rates with the top carriers in the marine industry.

Beyond new and used yacht and superyacht sales, Denison also offers full-service charter yacht services, managing boats in the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Alaska, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Central America. From marketing services to handling the financial side of the charter arrangement, the Denison team handles every aspect of charter yacht management for owners. Personalized service and attention to detail are the hallmarks of Denison’s charter yacht management approach.

Relying on their decades of yachting experience, Denison also offers private yacht management services for owners. From financial oversight and crew administration to technical support and certificate compliance, Denison’s approach to yacht management lets big boat owners forget about the headaches and instead focus on the enjoyable aspects of time on the water.
