Dennis Close, Broker

Dennis has spent his entire life around boats and on the water. The past 15 years, he has focused on yacht sales and construction. His expertise includes in-depth knowledge of yachts over 150 feet – including design and marketing. He has a solid understanding of social media and other high-tech and traditional marketing platforms. Results are the name of the game and when it comes to producing results for his clients… Dennis consistently delivers.

Life on the sea started at an early age in the Close family, as did the passion for boating and sportfishing. Dennis spent his childhood on Navy bases around the world, in between the brief stateside tours at home in Florida. He followed in his father’s footsteps into the US Navy following high school, which included sea tours on 3 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Promoted on a “fast track,” Dennis was selected into a competitive Naval Officer Commissioning program early in his career and earned his Bachelor’s Degree through NROTC at the University of North Florida.
Over the past 15 years, Dennis has also served in a variety of management and executive roles with many of the most respected boat brands, including CABO Yachts and refit yards such as RYBOVICH Superyacht Refit (West Palm Beach). He owned a boutique yacht brokerage firm in South Florida for 5 years, where he represented premier builders from Sportfishing to Superyachts.
From Sales and Marketing to Refit and Manufacturing, Dennis has had a highly diverse and successful career in the marine industry, resulting in a loyal following of repeat customers and a long list of referrals.
