Kevin Frawley was born in San Rafael, California, but spent most of his childhood in Ohio and Michigan prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale in 1992. He joined the United States Coast Guard in 2001 and spent his first two years of service in the Presidential Honor Guard in Washington, D.C., performing ceremonial duties at the White House, Pentagon and Tomb of the Unknowns as well as performing funeral services at Arlington National Cemetery. Kevin was then assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter ‘Valiant’, a 210’ medium endurance cutter out of Miami Beach.
Onboard ‘Valiant’, he served as a Gunners mate, Quartermaster and Boarding team member. The Valiant patrolled Caribbean waters conducting drug and migrant interdiction, including being the first US asset to arrive in Port-au-Prince during the 2004 Coup d’état, in which he received the Commandant’s Letter of Commendation. In the spring of 2004, he volunteered for a one-year deployment to serve onboard the Coast Guard Cutter Wrangell, a 110’ Island class cutter in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Upon completion of this deployment he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medal.

Kevin was one of the first responders for the crash of Chalks Flight 101 on December 19, 2005. For his service onboard Sitkinak, he was awarded the Coast Guard Achievement medal.
Kevin joined Denison Yacht Sales in 2006 selling brokerage boats between 50' & 130'. In 2009, Denison started to represent Selene Yachts and Kevin was selected as manager of Denison Yacht Sales first new boat line. This position allowed him to learn a great deal about yacht design and the building process, as well as successfully navigating the challenges presented by dealing with complicated builds in foreign countires.

Kevin helped bring Hatteras to Denison in 2016, serving as brand manager, and was promoted to new boat sales manager for Denison Yachting.
