McCartney joins Bluewater


Bluewater USA has appointed Clive McCartney as vice president of maritime operations and business development to head up the U.S. branch’s yacht management division.

Prior to joining Bluewater, McCartney was a yacht manager for 13 years at Fraser Yachts, where he contributed to the support of more than 60 yachts with worldwide itineraries. He began his career as a British naval officer and also spent five years in the cruise industry.

“I am delighted to join the Bluewater team,” McCartney said in a company press release. “I have watched the Bluewater brand grow in strength over the last few years and am very much looking forward to continuing that progress.”

Bluewater provides global yacht charter, sales and management services, as well as crew training and placement, with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Antibes, Monaco, Palma, Moscow and Hong Kong.

“Mr. McCartney brings a critical element of expertise in yacht management and maritime operations,” Brian Luke, president of Bluewater USA, stated in the release. “He provides [us] the horsepower needed to continue our growth in the U.S. market as well as superior support to our European operations.”
