Julie Tijerina

    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.

    When we were looking for the boat of our dreams we knew we needed the right broker to help us sort through the myriad of listings out there. After working with a few others, we knew we found the right broker when we found Julie. She knows the business and also understands the buyer’s experience as a boat owner herself. In short, she’s the best!

    After years of knocking around the idea of purchasing a sailboat my husband began a dialogue with Julie based purely on the fact that her name kept coming up in the area we where searching. She was timely and knowledgeable over the phone (we’re in Maine, she’s in Florida) but when we met things really clicked. She had really listened to our wants/needs and especially our price range. She had a great list of boats lined up for us to see and what do you know we bought one! Julie is a true professional and fun to be with to boot. Her love of boats and boating life is evident and shows in her work. We can’t recommend her highly enough!

    We want to sincerely thank Julie for her wonderful assistance in purchasing our new-to-us cruising sailboat. As the sellers agent Julie went well above our expectations and made the entire purchasing process run so smoothly! My partner and I had spent months looking for our ideal boat. We met many other yacht brokers along the way but found that Julie was the only one that treated both my partner and myself as equals, and also happened to be the broker for our dream boat. Julie spent countless hours helping us acquire our boat. She made sure to keep us updated throughout every stage of the process, and we always felt like our interests were well looked after. We were very happy to have found our liveaboard sailboat through Julie and cannot recommend her highly enough! We now consider Julie a good friend and hope to catch up with her on the water one day.
