Megayacht News Radio: Bob Denison, Denison Yachting
For nearly 20 years, Bob Denison has been at the helm of Denison Yacht Sales, a.k.a. Denison Yachting. Since then, he has distinguished the firm by embracing video and other web-related best practices in ways others have not.
In some ways, yachting was his destiny, considering his grandparents established the well-known Broward Marine in the late 1940s in Florida. His parents established Denison Marine years later. Bob Denison himself even worked on the shipyard floor in his youth. Experiences outside of yachting, however, had just as much of an influence on him, as you’ll learn in this episode of the Megayacht News Radio podcast.

MegayachtNews Radio: How Tier III Regulations Will Impact Your Yacht in 2021
In yachting, regulations come from a variety of sources. One of them is the International Maritime Organization (also known as the IMO), a specialized agency of the United Nations. The IMO has a particular focus on improving the safety and security of international shipping and preventing pollution from vessels of all kinds. To that latter point, the IMO has a set of emissions standards, commonly referred to as the Tier III standards, which will begin applying to a significant number of megayachts starting January 1, 2021. While there's been a lot of talk about Tier III over the past few years within yachting, unfortunately few owners and their advisors understand what it means. So, consider today's podcast an Education 101 session. Chris Swanhart of DLBA Naval Architects is our guest, explaining:what the new regulation requires, and for what sizes of yachts, in layman's termshow the regulation impacts both new builds and refitswhat equipment these yachts will now have to carrywhat the challenges are in terms of design, space utilization, and costand more.
