Justin D Blue has played an instrumental role in brand and business development within the yachting industry and in yacht sales, charters and services directly to clients.
Having built and developed yacht brands in the Americas such as Ferretti Yachts, Pershing Yachts, Riva Yachts among others, Justin has the experience & understanding of how to address the needs of yacht buyers, sellers and charters, and how to enter a market and target growth and brand recognition within the marine industry.
Justin was raised living aboard a sailboat for 9 years, sailing the East Coast and Caribbean Islands with his family. It was during these formative years his love for the sea and boating life would become everlasting. This love has since grown into a passion for helping others understand the joys of being on the water.
At a young age, Justin began his yachting career with Ferretti of America, developing the Ferretti Yachts brand in the Americas market. Being a small family company, it was an all hands on deck approach which provided him with a broad understanding of all aspects of the yacht business, from manufacturing, to sales and marketing, after-sales and customer service. This led to opening his own company providing yacht sales and management services to an elite clientele around the world. After 10 years he exited his business, but the passion of yachting brought him back to the Ferretti Group to further develop their 7 brands in the Americas market as their COO.
