Bitcoins for boats

Dec 2, 2014

Now you can use cyber currency to buy your next boat. Denison Yacht Sales of Fort Lauderdale has announced that it is now accepting BitCoin as payment for yacht purchases and yacht charters. Denison is joining such firms as Dell, Dish Network, Expedia, the NBA basketball team the Sacramento Kings and others that accept Bitcoin. Purchases at Denison will be handled by BitPay, reportedly the world's largest Bitcoin payment service provider. Along with used brokerage yachts for sale, Denison also sells new sailboats by Dufour and Fountaine Pajot, along with several brands of power vessels. 

As Denison president Bob Denison put it in a press release: "We need to be present and available to all potential clients in all marketplaces and if a client wants to pay with Bitcoins, we are now positioned to handle the transaction. With the sale of just one medium sized yacht using this currency, we would be poised to make the largest Bitcoin transaction in history."
