    Dave Powers's Profile


    Dave grew up in Southern California, and while he owned an 18’ catamaran when he was younger, it wasn’t until later that he became keenly enthusiastic about sailing. In 1993, a coworker invited him to race on a Wednesday night Sunset Series race, and he was hooked. Since then he has owned a couple of sailboats and has enjoyed racing, especially ocean competitions. In total with racing and deliveries, he has sailed from San Francisco to Panama on the West Coast. He has been through the Panama Canal twice - once in each direction - and has crisscrossed the Caribbean. On the East Coast, he has made a Bermuda race and a delivery on a Hylas from Charleston to the BVIs. In 2014, Dave joined the Denison Yacht Sales team, where he naturally specializes in sailboats. Prior to Denison, he worked with Hylas Yachts for 15 years, first with rigging, plumbing and electrical systems during more than 50 new yacht commissionings; and he conducted dozens of yacht system and sailing orientations for new Hylas owners. He enjoys selling the new sailboats at boat shows, and he sold the first Hylas 70. He now lives in Marina del Rey, where he ran his own rigging and electrical service business for over 15 years. He and his wife have two adult daughters and five grandchildren. When not on a sailboat he can be seen pedaling his road bike; and he enjoys reading to relax.
