Good friends. Great boats.
Chris Downey was doing what he does best, selling boats. After serving in the Navy and time in the radio industry, he joined the family yacht brokerage business. Like everything else in his life, he committed himself to this job with everything he had. He made sure to treat every customer with respect as well as anticipate and take care of every need they had throughout the entire process. His customers appreciated that. One in particular appreciated it more than the rest: Denny Howell.
When Denny and Chris met, Denny had already owned a number of boats and was a longtime fisherman. And while they began their relationship as broker and customer, over the years they soon became good friends. Denny, the owner of a successful civil engineering firm, respected Chris’s experience, knowledge, work ethic, and dedication to customer service. So much so, in fact, that he offered to partner with him when the time came for Chris to fulfill his life-long dream of opening his very own yacht brokerage. The result is a yacht brokerage unlike any other. One that connects a mutual passion for boats and the sea with a deep knowledge of the industry and an unwavering commitment to customer service.
At the core of DH Yacht Sales’ foundation is a friendship built on trust, the tenets of which ripple throughout the entire company.
