Denison Yacht Sales opens new office in Florida

Denison Yacht Sales opened an office at The Harborage Yacht Club and Marina in Stuart, Fla.

Denison Yacht Sales opened an office at The Harborage Yacht Club and Marina in Stuart, Fla.

The location will feature new-boat brands that include Beneteau Swift Trawlers, Beneteau GTs, Monte Carlo Yachts and Fountaine Pajot Power Catamarans.

Formerly the office of Island Trader Yacht Sales, Denison's new office is led by a team of four licensed and bonded yacht brokers: Garret Almeida, Mickey Belden, Bruce Edwards and Jorge Saavedra.

The company said it opened the office because Stuart is one of Florida's fastest-growing marine communities and has experienced many marine manufacturers, retailers and service contractors expanding there in recent years.

"The surrounding waterways offer tremendous boating opportunities, such as big-game sportfishing, waterfront dining, multiple anchorages and sand bars, as well as being the gateway to the cross-state Okeechobee Waterway," yacht broker Garret Almeida said in a statement. "Denison's office is located right in the middle of this great 300-slip marina. It's less than 10 years old and can comfortably accommodate large and small vessels."

The company has five offices in Florida, three in California, and one apiece in Michigan, Washington state, South Carolina, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
