Denison Yacht Sales added Beneteau’s sailboat lines to its portfolio of Beneteau powerboat brands for distribution on Florida’s east coast.

Denison’s sales and service teams dedicated to new Beneteau yachts are based in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, Fla.

Denison’s contribution to the Beneteau family has been recognized with the awards of best turnover for Beneteau powerboats in 2014 and best turnover for Monte Carlo powerboats in 2015.

“Strengthening our existing partnership with Denison Yacht Sales toward sailboats is a logical decision,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said in a statement. “Denison’s success story with our powerboat brands will translate into outstanding customer service — from research to purchase, delivery and beyond — for sailboat buyers in eastern Florida.”

Denison will represent Beneteau powerboats and sailboats at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, which will open on Thursday and continue through Monday.

The Sense 55 will be at the Pier 66 location, and the lineup of 10 new powerboats will be at the Bahia Mar venue on dock F/G, including the premiering Monte Carlo 6.
