Justin Blue | Yacht Sales Professional & Business Developer
Justin was raised in his early years living aboard a sailboat with his family and after 9 years of sailing the east coast and the Islands, his love for the sea and the boating life would become everlasting. This love has grown over the years into a passion for helping others to understand the joys of being on the water.
At a young age Justin started 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 gave a broad understanding of all aspects of the yacht business from manufacturing to sales and marketing to aftersales 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 working with the Ferretti Group for nine years to further develop their 7 brands in the Americas market as their COO. During his time with Ferretti Group he also developed the Pershing brand in the Americas and redeveloped Allied Marine as their Chief Sales & Marketing Officer growing it into the Ferretti Group’s largest dealer in the world.
Justin Blue, after thirty years in the yachting industry, has now founded YachtsBlue in order to “Get Back to Basics” and provide a boutique style approach to buying and selling yachts. By providing a hands on approach and making each customer feel like the only customer YachtsBlue is growing as a firm that you can trust to put the client first. He believes that if you put the clients interest ahead of your own then in the long run you it will pay off and you will earn a client for life. This is the core value behind YachtsBlue being – YOUR YACHTING OFFICE.
When asked, what do you love so much about the sea, Justin explained “The sea is ever changing, uncontrollable, and has beauty beyond the depths of imagination. Once you’re touched by the sea you will spend your life exploring and trying to understand it, knowing that you will always be surprised by something new.”
