Denison Yachting is excited to welcome Thom Conboy and Chris Collins to its growing superyacht team. Thom and Chris will continue their work as yacht brokers based out of Fort Lauderdale.

Thom's career in the yachting industry spans over 35 years as a yacht broker, captain, project manager, yacht builder, and shipyard owner. Thom joins Denison most recently from Ocean Independence where he was the Managing Director of North America. Thom will also continue his representation of Heesen Yachts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Thom is a trusted advisor to clients and colleagues with comprehensive knowledge of yacht construction, sales, management, and operations.

Chris joins Denison from Ocean Independence and offers over 20 years of experience in different areas of the industry. Chris began his career working in positions on both private and charter yachts. He became a yacht captain in 2005, sailing extensively throughout the U.S., Bahamas, Europe, and the Caribbean. In 2007, Chris transitioned ashore and held roles as a yacht manager, yacht charter manager, and yacht broker.

"Chris and I are thrilled to be joining the team. Denison's dynamic and forward-thinking marketing machine and their demonstrated sale successes, along with our experiences and relationships will make for an undeniable force in yachting," commented Thom Conboy.

Thom and Chris offer a wealth of knowledge and experience in superyacht sales and new construction. They both strive to make new and repeat clients feel comfortable and confident with transactions from design to delivery and beyond. As respected individuals in the yachting industry, Thom and Chris are a natural fit for the Denison family.

"Welcoming Thom and Chris to the Denison team comes at a very exciting time in our company's history. Both have an energy and passion for the yacht business that perfectly suits our fast-paced ethos," said Ben Farnborough, Superyacht Director at Denison. "They will greatly help us continue building the recent successes of our large yacht efforts. We're all very excited to work together and wish both Thom and Chris every success at their new home."

Denison offers a suite of superyacht services including new construction, yacht sales, retail charter, yacht management, yacht charter management, crew placement, financing, and insurance options.
