David C. Lacz - Principal, Sales Broker
Mr. Lacz, owner and president of Bartram & Brakenhoff, has been in the yachting industry for the past twenty plus years. Ten of those years were spent as a private yacht captain sailing throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Atlantic Ocean and U.S. waters. During this period, he assisted in the design and construction of the yacht he was to captain. He eventually started a successful charter business for the owner, sailing guests and clients in the Caribbean and New England waters.
Mr. Lacz started working for Bartram & Brakenhoff in 1995 as a yacht broker. In 1998 Mr. Lacz purchased Bartram & Brakenhoff, in 2000 opened the Ft. Lauderdale office and in 2003 created Bartram & Brakenhoff's Charter Fleet & Management Division.
Since ownership, he has been dedicated to upgrading technology for all the in-house systems, marketing strategies and increasing the sales force and business activities in both the Newport, Rhode Island and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida offices.
Mr. Lacz has been specializing in the large motor yacht market with loyal clients purchasing the third and fourth yachts through him.
He is a member of YBAA, FYBA, and RIMTA (Rhode Island Marine Trade Association). His ideas and concepts are to continue with the style and reputation that Bartram & Brakenhoff has been known for over the past four decades and will continue with "business as usual" for the next four decades.
