After moving to Newport Beach in Southern California in the 1960s, he joined the newly opened Ardell Yacht & Ship Brokers in Newport Beach as one of the original sales staff and was part of the team for over 40 years except for a two year sabbatical in the late '70's to captain a 57' S & S sailboat. 

Dennis is an avid sailor and has participated in numerous sailing races to Hawaii and Mexico. He has cruised extensively on both power and sail in the Pacific Northwest, Canada, Alaska, Mexico and the Caribbean, which is a priceless asset when working with discerning clients. Dennis also offers more than four decades of yacht brokerage experience, ensuring his ability to create a seamless and enjoyable sale or purchase process for his clients.
