Broward is an American luxury motor yacht builder. Although Broward’s were originally built of wood, aluminum became the material of choice and designers began working to blend the new metal technologies with traditional yacht lines. Broward yachts produced many configurations of the years, including a sport fish, a raised bridge, a raised pilothouse, and a tri-deck yacht, ranging from 98 to 156 feet in length.
The company has been building private luxury yachts for over 50 years and Frank Denison was the founder of Broward. Frank was an avid yachtsman himself and he enjoyed time spent cruising on the yachts he created.
Broward Marine is concerned with satisfying their client’s dreams by building fine yachts. The company has focused on creating custom yachts specifically designed for their various individual clients. Broward has taken into consideration many favorite customer options, and subsequently integrated them into standard equipment for their newest launches.
Although the yard was closed-down for a while in 2004-2005, it has been purchased and resurrected by a successful real estate developer, Tom Lewis. Three new yachts have been introduced, including a 120’, 137’ and a 160’ model. Since assuming control in March 2005, Lewis also has invested in new equipment and upgrades at the boatyard, restarted its yacht maintenance, repair and refit business and hired additional personnel, including many former Broward Marine employees.
