OnBoard Magazine - Issue XII - 2020 Season

W ith over 50 years of operation in yacht sales and service, the Bluewater companies have weathered the best and the worst times for our industry and the economy. The past year may have brought some unpredictable changes, but our forward-thinking leadership was prepared for shifts. All along, we’ve continually invested in our facilities and teams and can operate from a place of strength, with the confidence that we can persevere through any conditions. Our sales team represents some of the best brands in the industry, and they are supported by a team of assistants who are experts at closing deals and providing an unsurpassed customer experience. Plus, Bluewater’s in-house financing and documentation department helps make every transaction even more seamless and enjoyable. Boating is an activity meant to bring joy and unique adventures to the owners, captains and guests. We aim to provide an exceptional experience along the way. Whether selling your first boat or moving up for the n-th time, you will find a dedicated team ready to serve. And, when it is time for maintenance, repairs and upgrades, the Bluewater Network has your back throughout the Atlantic East Coast, with world-class service operations in strategic and convenient locations. Like any industry, boating and yachting are always evolving; constantly adjusting to market demands and innovating to provide the best features and options to the customer. Getting out on the water is a great escape from the norm and the hustle and bustle of our fast-paced lives. “Slowing down”—even if powering through the chop at 40 knots—is a mantra most of our customers share with us. Their boating adventures are a true escape. This twelfth edition of the OnBoard publicationhas it all: adventure, experience, insight, perseverance, heartfelt stories and the best from our service yards, our sales team, and our customers. Through these pages you’ll enjoy the spirit of boating, while meeting some of our newest team members and noteworthy customers. You’ll also witness how Bluewater is constantly working to ensure our greatest priority is met: providing the best experiences for our customers in every facet of their boating journeys. As a company, we look forward to turning the page and writing a new chapter filled with the adventures and accomplishments of our partners and customers—our Bluewater family—and you.
