“Dean, your attention to all the small but significant details during the survey, closing, and the follow-up after the sale are much appreciated Dean. We are happy to recommend your services to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a yacht like ours.”
“We were shopping for a yacht for 2 years when we met Dean at a boatshow. Dean found us a great deal and went above and beyond the usual call of a yacht broker, traveling numerous times to California and handled all the details to make sure everything went smoothly for us.”
“Dean found me a deal on the yacht that I really wanted that was so attractive, I canceled the deal I had on going another boat. After a few years when I decided to sell, Dean found a retail buyer in Europe, hired a translator, arranged for shipping, and flew to Greece to deliver it to the new owner to keep the deal together. Now that’s service!”
“ Dean this is boat deal #2 with you. In 20 years of buying and selling boats, I am certain no other broker would look after my interests the way you did. Your advice saved me tens of thousands of dollars.”

Worth Noting: Broward Marine installed the first diesel engines in a yacht.
Frank Denison founded Broward Marine in 1948 when he purchased the Ft. Lauderdale shipyard, then known as Dooley’s Dry Dock while on his honeymoon with his wife, Gertrude.
Frank & Gertrude later made many yachting innovations, including the installation of the first diesel engines in a yacht and the “Country Kitchen.”
Throughout the Korean War and WWII, Broward Marine constructed military vessels for the Dutch and U.S. Navy. It later began building custom yachts ranging between 60 and 165 feet and became the largest private employer in Broward County, Florida.
