Julie’s love of boating has been a 15-year affair that translated into a massive lifestyle change in 2016. Transplanted Texans, Julie and her husband relocated to Jacksonville to move aboard their Whitby 42, Star Stuff. Previously, Julie performed the functions of Swab for a charter company for a few seasons, cleaning and helping maintain a charter fleet in Texas. She and her husband owned a Ranger 23 and spent many summers sailing the lakes of North Texas. A lifelong student, Julie has enjoyed taking navigation classes and workshops with the United States Power Squadrons and completed ASA 101 and 103.
During the Whitby transaction, Julie so admired the professionalism and integrity of working with St. Barts Yachts, that when they offered her a position as a broker, she jumped at the chance. She is thrilled to offer her assistance to others as they purchase their yacht or decide to “swallow the hook” and sell their boat. After many years of planning, Julie is thrilled that her dream of owning a blue-water cruiser has come to fruition. Whether your dream boat is a weekender, an island-hopping catamaran, or a heavy displacement monohull, Julie wants to help you make that dream a reality.
