Denison Yacht Sales, one of the yachting industry's fastest growing firms, is proud to announce the opening of a new Great Lakes office in Holland, Michigan.
 

The new office is located at Eldean Shipyard, a full service shipyard, on the South Shore of Lake Macatawa, just 85 nautical miles from Chicago. Denison is happy to be returning to their roots in Michigan, establishing themselves at Eldean Shipyard.

 
Lake Michigan, along with Lake Macataw, is an ideal location for boating families and Denison is thrilled to offer their full-service brokerage and new boat sales and service to the region. Denison will be exclusively representing Monte Carlo Yachts, Austin Parker, Contender Fishing Boats, and Pirelli Yacht Tenders in the Great Lakes area. Currently Denison is stocking three brand new boats at its Holland office. Denison will also be offering brokerage assistance and yacht marketing solutions.


The Denison family has been rooted in Michigan's yachting industry for more 50 years. Frank and Gertrude Denison, founders of Broward Marine, expanded their operation from South Florida in 1978, opening a new construction facility to build their aluminum yachts in Saugatuck, Michigan. The Denison family opened their first shipyard in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1948.

 
"I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time in Michigan as a kid. It's an easy place to fall in love with, and a part of our country loaded with yachting tradition," said Bob Denison. "Not only were Browards built in Western Michigan, but the Tiara and Chris Craft factories also provided local families with thousands of jobs in the area.

 
Denison has appointed two new brokers to operate the new location. Fred Schmitt and Jeff Phillips, both whom are well-versed in all aspects of the yachting industry are intimate with the local boating traditions of Michigan.
