I built bluewater from the ground up, preliminarily as a crew placement and recruiting agency, before quickly expanding to incorporate yacht charter, brokerage, management and crew training divisions. With nine offices in seven countries, bluewater is able to offer a personal service with a global vision, consistently delivering excellent service to a large and diverse client base.
My background mirrors the global approach and professional standing of my company. Hailing from the United Kingdom where I had a career in the Royal Navy, I moved to France over 25 years ago to launch my own company. As CEO of bluewater and director of yacht brokerage, I try to be both dynamic and approachable - a combination that draws clients to return time and again.
Bluewater prides itself on a "One Company, One Complete Service" philosophy. Our headquarters are situated in Antibes with satellites globally. We work with a wide network of brokers, insurance companies, luxury yacht builders, yacht buyers, shipyards and designers to provide a comprehensive and seamless experience. In today’s ever evolving market we stand strong, with an in-house team comprising of the world’s most diligent personnel, guaranteeing a complete, professional service, time and time again.
Each year we exhibit and participate in all the major industry shows and events, including the Monaco Yacht Show and Genoa MYBA Show, allowing bluewater to cement its reputation as a global leader in the super yacht industry.
Despite the previous year’s economic recession, I have completed a number of extremely successful projects that have allowed bluewater to weather the financial crisis and emerge stable and strong for the coming years.
I have commissioned various projects between 65m and 40m from quality shipyards such as Benetti, Heesen, Bloemsma & Van Breeman, Proteksan and Shipworks Brisbane.
Unlike the more straightforward sale of a finished yacht, I have followed projects from conception to delivery, before often handing over yachts to the bluewater charter and management.
I pride myself on the large number of clients that return to me time and again for their yachting needs. My professionalism mixed with personal understanding, mean that my clients are reassured on both a business and individual level. I devote my attention and time not just on selling yachts, but to an exceptional after-sales treatment that continues long after contract has been signed.
As MD of bluewater I am constantly pushing my team to develop bespoke, innovative services the industry is demanding in this world of fast moving connectivity. We hope you like it and look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your continued support!
