The Sun Sentinel named Fort Lauderdale-based Denison Yacht Sales as South Florida's Top Workplace in the Small Employer Group of its Top Workplaces Award.

Winners were selected solely on employee feedback, through a comprehensive survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, a research firm that focuses on organizational health and employee engagement.

Third-generation business owner Bob Denison is leading the company's efforts in new and used-boat sales at its 15 locations. Employees mentioned enjoying a positive work environment, where they are given the tools to grow professionally and contribute to the company's success.

"I love being a part of the Denison Yacht Sales family because it is a drama-free environment surrounded by lots of high-fives and positive energy. I definitely look forward to coming into work every day and Bob makes sure that we all feel that way," yacht listing manager Jamie Telcik said in a statement.

"Denison has a fun work environment that is headlined by Bob being one of the fairest and nicest guys I've ever met,” Florida yacht broker Kevin Frawley said. “I think everyone recognizes that. He works as hard as anyone in the office, but also is one of the funniest people. Every morning I wake up and I get to go to work; I don't have to."

Denison Yacht Sales launched in 1948 with the start of Broward Marine in Fort Lauderdale.

Today Denison has five locations in Florida, three in California, and offices in Montauk, N.Y., Holland, Mich., Seattle; Charleston, S.C.; Puerto Rico; the Virgin Islands; and Hong Kong.
