Bluewater Opens Yacht Management in the USA

Bluewater is pleased to announce additional services now available from their Fort Lauderdale location
Bluewater announces the addition of yacht management services to the scope of their Fort Lauderdale based operations following the recent appointment of Clive McCartney as VP Marine Operations.

Brian Luke, President of Bluewater Management & Crew Training USA comments, “Bluewater has offered yacht management services from our Antibes office for many years and we have long wanted to establish a hub for that activity in Fort Lauderdale. The addition of Clive to our team gives us that opportunity.”

Phillip Holden, Director of Yacht Management for bluewater in Antibes, states “These are exciting times for bluewater management, we see management in the US as a huge opportunity for growth and a complementary service to our Training, Crewing, Charter and Brokerage services already on offer. The appointment of Clive McCartney will give us the level of quality and experience necessary to make this another successful part of the bluewater family”.

McCartney adds, “We deliver a high-quality service to clients and their captains who are looking for integrity and accuracy in the operation of the yacht. My mantra in yacht management is that we are here to provide an infrastructure which enables the captain to succeed in meeting the owner’s expectations. Our core strength in crew training at bluewater puts us in a unique position of being able to offer a truly complete vessel lifecycle solution, not only in the build, refit, operation, maintenance and compliance of the yacht, but also in providing the crew management solutions that cause so many of the challenges expressed by owners and their representatives. I am excited to be involved at the inception of this bluewater service in the US and look forward to working with our clients.”
