Tony grew up boating on Lake Michigan, spending summer weekends waterskiing and exploring the Great Lakes. After graduating from Purdue University as an electrical engineer, he went into boating more seriously following his desire to cruise on the open ocean.
Splitting his time in technology sales, between Florida and California, he decided to start a Yacht Charter company on each coast, using this time to obtain his 100 Ton Master Captain's License.
Tony now focuses on Luxury Catamarans, Motor Yachts, and Mega Yachts. He is Denison Brand Manager for Silver Yachts and specializes in the SilverCat Luxury Power Catamarans from 22 – 36 Meters ( 70 – 120ft ). As such, Tony is a regular at the Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows. Primarily representing VIP Buyers, Tony is very skilled in helping clients define their mission and selecting the correct yacht. As a 100 Ton Master Captain and previously owning two charter yacht companies, he can advise on the pros & cons of Chartering your vessel.
As an avid boater and owner of several Sailing and Power Yachts, Tony is very familiar with the Survey, Sea Trial, and Mechanical Inspection for various sizes and range of vessels. Acting as a trusted advisor, Tony treats every client transaction with the same care and attention to detail as his personal investments, so Tony’s clients are very well advised and taken care of.

I want to write this email to congratulate your yacht sales business and thank you for helping me get my new boat. Your yacht broker, Tony Smith went above and beyond to help me purchase my vessel.
No matter what time of the day or night Saturday or Sunday day, he was always there. Tony was there and helpful through the entire process, from yacht showing, sea trial, boat closing, this guy was awesome. Tony is a great yacht broker.
My wife and I were very pleased with him and Denison Yacht Sales.
I recently listed my boat for sale with Tony Smith, a yacht broker with Denison Yachting. Tony promptly responded to my request with a Market Analysis that helped me price the boat appropriately to get attention.
In addition to regular Photography Services, Tony filmed a Walkthrough Video of the boat. This Walkthrough video illustrated the Key Features of the boat and was promoted on YouTube.
The YouTube video achieved traffic of over 4,700 Views and ultimately was the resource that brought in the key prospective buyer. We received a Sight-Unseen Offer and successfully negotiated a deal. Tony helped with all aspects of the buyers Sea Trial and Delivery.
Denison Yachting's Closing Team was highly professional and helped to smoothly facilitate our deal. I would be happy to work with Denison and Tony Smith in the future as a Seller or as a potential Buyer.
