Yacht brokerage opens Connecticut office


Denison has opened its 24th office, located in Southport, Connecticut. The office will be led by Ted Lahey, a yacht broker whose experience in the marine and yachting industry includes The Hinckley Co. and over 20 years as the owner of Essex Boat Works. Lahey specializes in sailboats, trawlers and Downeast boats, according to the company.

“I’m very excited to join the team and help expand Denison’s footprint and bring its cutting-edge marketing capabilities to the New York and New England area,” Lahey stated in a company news release.

Denison will represent Hatteras at the Connecticut office, which is at 411 Pequot Ave.

A suburb of Fairfield, Southport is a small Colonial-era town, and the picturesque Southport Harbor is five miles southwest of Bridgeport and almost seven miles east of Norwalk off Long Island Sound. Boating facilities in Southport Harbor include the Pequot Yacht Club and two public marinas.

This is Denison fourth office in the Northeast, joining offices in Jersey City, N.J., Montauk, N.Y., and Newport, R.I. For more information, visit
