Denison Yacht Sales, a Fort Lauderdale-based yacht brokerage and charter firm, opened a new office on the West Coast.
"This is a great opportunity for us to work more closely with a significant portion of our client base and to continue to grow the base of knowledge and talent associated with Denison Yacht Sales," said Bob Denison, president of Denison Yacht Sales, in a statement.
Located in the Fisherman's Village section of Marina del Rey, Calif., amid more than 5,000 boat slips, the new office provides Denison's full range of services. It is part of an overall strategy to position the company for greater market share when the economy begins to emerge from the current downturn.
"I see good potential for medium- and long-term growth in the yacht brokerage industry for those who can embrace change and shed old ways of doing business," said Denison.
The Marina Del Rey office includes five licensed and bonded brokers: Nereus Dastur, Bob Leslie, Gordon Passey, Bill Peterson and Paul Swanlund.
