Denny Howell III



Denny may have been born and raised in Chester County, PA, but he has been on and around boats since he was just one year old. Growing up, he spent his summers running boats and fishing on the Chesapeake alongside his Dad. At just ten years old, he could run and dock his family’s 17’ center console. At age fifteen, Denny started fishing in Cape May, New Jersey, which quickly became one of his favorite places. He is grateful to the many local Cape May fishing mates for teaching him their fishing style and has used much of what they taught him to develop new techniques of his own. His practice paid off when he caught his first billfish, a Longbill Spearfish, an extremely rare catch in Cape May.

Denny was the first mate on the Big Dog, his Dad’s 48’ Graves, and fished with his Dad in the White Marlin Open and the Mid Atlantic. In the 2017 Mid Atlantic, the Big Dog caught a 2nd place tuna after Denny rigged the bait and hooked the fish before passing it off to the angler. Denny is currently a student at Drexel University and plans to graduate in 2022 with a degree in Civil Engineering. Just like many others here at DH Yacht Sales, Denny has spent much of his life on the water and is ready to help you find your next boat.
