“Good broker – and resource.”
“Dana Davidson is an extremely knowledgeable boat broker who really understands boats and their systems. My wife and I purchased a previously owned Freedom 45 Center Cockpit sloop thru Dana and he proved to be invaluable. His knowledge of sailing yachts in general and Freedom in particular far exceeded other brokers we had dealt with during our search and purchase. I highly recommend Dana for his professionalism and expertise to anyone buying or selling a power or sail boat.”

Dana Davidson’s passion and enthusiasm for great yachts began with a 29’ Class A Northeast Harbor sloop his parents kept on a mooring in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Since then, his sailing adventures have taken him all over New England, to San Francisco Bay, Europe, and parts of the Caribbean. His most memorable voyages include riding out Hurricane Juan on a Little Harbor 62 en route to Antigua, sailing from St. Lucia to the Grenadines, and family trip off the Isle of Skye at Loch Bay. Dana headed west to the University of Montana but his summers were spent teaching sailing at a summer camp in Maine and on Boston Harbor. After a brief stint at Prudential Bache, Dana began working in the yachting industry as a broker for several manufacturers and distributors of power and sail boats. His interest in working with larger yachts in broader national and international based markets would eventually lead him to found his own brokerage firm, Davidson Yachts, in Barrington, Rhode Island. His loyal clients followed; many of whom have purchased more than one yacht from this energetic and knowledgeable broker. Off the water, Dana enjoys hiking, tennis, fishing, and spending time with his wife Sally and two children; Mackenzie and Conner.
