Broker takes bitcoin

ADVERTISEMENT

Ft. Lauderdale-based brokerage firm Denison Yacht Sales now accepts the online peer-to-peer payment system Bitcoin for yacht purchases and charters.

The cyber currency is becoming an increasingly popular way to purchase many types of goods and services including electronics, food, automobiles, travel and even education.

“We need to be present and available to all potential clients in all marketplaces, and if a client wants to pay with Bitcoins, we are now positioned to handle the transaction,” said Bob Denison, president of Denison Yacht Sales. “With the sale of just one medium-sized yacht using this currency, we would be poised to make the largest Bitcoin transaction in history.”

Payments will be processed through BitPay, which provides payment processing services for more than 50,000 businesses and processes more than $1 million daily.

Along with used brokerage yachts for sale, Denison also will accept Bitcoin for purchases of the new boat lines it represents, including Monte Carlo Yachts, Beneteau Power, Dufour Sailing Yachts, Fountaine Pajot, Pirelli Yacht tenders and Contender Fishing Boats.

Denison Yacht Sales has offices in Palm Beach Gardens, Ft. Lauderdale, St. Petersburg, and Naples, Fla.; Montauk, N.Y.; Marina del Rey and Newport Beach, Calif.; Holland, Mich.; Seattle; Charleston; and Antibes.
