Denison Yacht Sales recently opened a new office, the seventh location for the growing yacht sales and brokerage firm.

Located at Boatworld Marina on Lake Union in Seattle, the new marina office is led by Brad Pilz, a marine industry veteran with more than 20 years of yacht service and brokerage experience. The new location offers brokerage and new-boat sales with an emphasis on the Beneteau GT line, Pirelli Yacht Tenders and Austin Parker.

"The Denison team is very optimistic about the future of the growing Pacific Northwest market," Pilz said in a statement. "We believe that the outstanding boat manufacturers and clients that we represent are a great fit for this region."

Denison is the Northwest dealer for Grand Turismo and Monte Carlo series yachts, built by Beneteau. This December, Pilz will visit the Beneteau factory in France for an in-depth look at the operation.

"Seattle is a city with a high tradition of boating. I've personally enjoyed every trip there and can't wait to become a part of that community," Denison president Bob Denison said in a statement.
