Bartram and Brakenhoff Founders and new President The The Bartram & Brakenhoff Yacht Brokerage Firm was initially established by J. Burr Bartram, Jr., and Bruce R. Brakenhoff, Sr. in December of 1967, at that time being operated out of a single location in Greenwich, Connecticut. In 1980, a second office was opened in Newport, Rhode Island, soon becoming the Corporate Headquarters. In 1996, David C. Lacz joined the firm as a Yacht Broker working out of the Newport RI office and in 1998 Mr. Lacz proudly purchased the firm from Mr. Joe Bartram and Mr. Bruce Brakenhoff.

Following the new ownership, an additional office was purchased & opened in Ft. Lauderdale Florida in 2000 to better serve one of the largest yachting communities in the world. Offering additional service to our clientele, Bartram & Brakenhoff began its first ever Charter Fleet and Management Division in 2003, with our charter division headquarters being in our Newport, RI location. In 2009 Bartram & Brakenhoff created our "Crew Placement Division" through the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida location.

Currently, Bartram & Brakenhoff offers fully licensed yacht & charter brokers with experienced in both yacht & charter brokerage assistance to manage their many yachting brokerage and charter needs for our clients worldwide. We also believe that it is very imperative to interact very closely with various yacht captains serving our yacht owners in all corners of the globe.
