Kadey-Krogen Names Dennis Lawrence Director of West Coast Sales
STUART, FL: Kadey-Krogen Yachts President John Gear announces that Dennis Lawrence is appointed director of West Coast sales for the company, effective immediately. 'Dennis brings 25 years experience in yacht sales, an enormous depth of knowledge about trawler yachts and the trawler lifestyle, plus an unsurpassed enthusiasm for Kadey-Krogen Yachts and our customers,' says Gear. 'We are pleased to have him aboard, and look forward to serving our West Coast family with great passion. With three offices now, we have coverage on both coasts to fully assist Kadey-Krogen customers and keep them completely satisfied and able to enjoy the finest ownership experience in the yachting industry.'
In May, Lawrence will open a Kadey-Krogen sales office on Lake Union, at 1115 North Northlake Way, Suite 300, Seattle, WA. This is the current site of Passage Maker Yachts who will be moving to a new location at the end of April. Lawrence can be reached by telephone at (800) 247-1230.
'The Kadey-Krogen group provides customers the pinnacle of the trawler yacht lifestyle,' says Lawrence. 'I am truly excited about this opportunity and I look forward to an energetic, positive experience in delivering the company's core values of capability, liveability, family and genuine value to each and every Kadey-Krogen owner.'
Larry Polster, vice president of sales and marketing for Kadey-Krogen Yachts says, 'Dennis has a lifelong passion for boating, and spent the last 20 years with Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE) selling the Nordhavn line. He is eager to demonstrate the Kadey-Krogen differences to new customers and to introduce them to our fun-loving and active group of West Coast owners. Dennis believes, as all of us do at Kadey-Krogen, that life is just too short not to live your dreams fully.'
Originally hailing from Houston, TX, Lawrence comes to the Kadey-Krogen family by way of Southern California and South Florida. 'My father was a yacht dealer,' says Lawrence, 'so I was indoctrinated at an early age. This business is in my blood. '
Kadey-Krogen Yachts currently builds five lengths of full displacement trawler yachts: 39', 44', 48', 55' and 58'. The company is headquartered in Stuart, FL, and has sales offices in Annapolis, MD, and Seattle, WA. The company is celebrating thirty years in business.
