Fraser has new brokers in San Diego


John Gladstone and David Morris have joined Fraser’s San Diego office as brokers.

Gladstone grew up sailing out of Manhasset Bay on Long Island Sound in New York and moved to San Diego in 1973. He brings diverse, multihull experience, including a partnership with Steve Fossett and Playstation, according to a company statement.

Morris grew up sailing in the waters of the United Kingdom. He trained as a captain first in the Mediterranean, then at the Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, Devon. He served as a navy officer on warships in both military and counter-narcotics operations, according to Fraser. For the past 20 years, Morris has raced and captained various yachts in San Diego, where he took up residence in 1998.

Fraser, a luxury yacht service provider with more than 150 employees and 20 offices around the world, is part of the Azimut-Benetti Group. For more information, visit
