Denison Yacht Sales announced a partnership with San Diego-based West Coast Multihulls, establishing a strategic presence in Southern California for the South Florida-based yacht sales company.

Denison will operate a yacht brokerage office in West Coast Multihulls’ Sunroad Marina office in San Diego.

"Over the past several years, the multihull segment of the industry has seen much faster growth than other segments, and partnering with West Coast Multihulls allows us to make a large stride in that direction," Denison New Yachts CEO Nereus Dastur said in a statement. "This is a team with expertise, knowledge and integrity and this partnership brings Denison Yacht Sales a strong presence in the San Diego-area market."

Formed in 1999, San Diego-based West Coast Multihulls is a boat dealer, brokerage, charter company and sailing school focusing on multihulls. Denison said WCM is run by a team of catamaran and trimaran sailors with decades of combined experience.

"Denison Yacht Sales manages one of the largest brokerage selections in the country, and this partnership will give us all the opportunity to meet the needs of just about any boater in Southern California," said Kurt Jerman, president of West Coast Multihulls. "With offices up and down both the east and west coasts of the U.S., offering both new and brokerage sail and power boats, partnering with Denison Yacht Sales was an easy choice."

The new office will carry Fountaine-Pajot sailing catamarans, Seawind Catamarans, Gemini and Corsair trimarans and monohulls by Dufour Yachts, the new C&C 30 and the Greenline Hybrid power cruisers.
