Dee Kraley to head up Yachtzoo charter management team

Yachtzoo has announced that Dee Kraley has joined its Fort Lauderdale office to head up the company’s charter management team.

Kraley started out her professional life as a commodity trader at Merrill Lynch. Since 1996 she has forged a prominent career path in yacht charter management within the US. Her role before joining us at Yachtzoo was director of charter marketing division for a LYBRA-member yacht brokerage company.

Commenting on her appointment, Kraley says: “I am very excited to join the Yachtzoo Fort Lauderdale team. I have the utmost respect for the integrity and high moral standards of the company’s founding partners, with whom I have had the pleasure to work over the past two decades. It has long been a dream of mine to work for a privately owned boutique-style company with a strategic presence in both Monaco and Fort Lauderdale, offering exceptional client service.”

In addition, Yachtzoo has made some dynamic changes to its US operation.

Darrell Hall, founding partner of Yachtzoo, commented: “We are thrilled to have Dee leading the way for our charter management team, and know that her outlook and approach to working with our central listings clients will be an instant hit.

“At Yachtzoo we understand that the yachting business evolves and is ever-adapting to market forces. We feel that the Dee’s dynamic nature alongside her outstanding knowledge and experience will be the perfect combination to help take Yachtzoo’s charter management activity to the next level,” he concludes.
