Denison Yacht Sales is streamlining the process of buying and selling a yacht for its clients by using YachtCloser’s Web-based contract management system.
YachtCloser, developed by Florida yacht broker Brad Parker and his team, provides a secure online platform with e-signature technology in an effort to expedite yacht listings, sales and purchases from anywhere in the world, according to the company.
Although initially skeptical about whether YachtCloser’s “new tech” closing solution would improve the buying and selling process for his firm’s clients, Denison Yacht Sales owner Bob Denison ultimately said in a statement: “We’ve been guinea pigs for lots of first-generation technology, but we have never experienced a smoother first run. This technology has saved our sales team time and has improved document accuracy, but most importantly it makes the sales process stress-free for our clients.”
Denison Yachts senior yacht broker Kevin Frawley recently used YachtCloser for the sale of a 61-foot Viking.
“The closing process now can be minimized to just half an hour, where before faxing and emailing all the necessary documents usually took a couple of hours,” Frawley said in a statement.
“We work hard to equip our brokers with thorough product knowledge and systems and sales training, and technology plays a large part in this,” Denison said. “We have five marina locations in North America, allowing us to serve large yachting segments locally. Technology gives our ‘local’ yachting experts global reach, reflecting our commitment to [give] the listings our clients entrust us with truly international marketing.”
Denison is a full-service yacht brokerage and yacht charter firm with marina offices in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Marina del Rey, Calif.; San Carlos, Mexico; Old Saybrook, Conn., and Scituate, Mass.
YachtCloser manages more than $500 million in active boat and yacht contracts nationwide.
