Blue World Voyages
Imagine an entire cruise ship deck designed just for sports + fitness. Another for spa amenities. Add local farm-to-table cuisine and healthy, active shore excursions and you have a cruise experience like no other. As the former President of Starbucks and EVP of Four Seasons Hotels, I've personally seen how great concepts make for great investment opportunities. Join us and become a charter member of our Founders
Club, where your future perks and discounts outweigh the cost of your
CEO John B Richards is the former President of Starbucks and led growth there from 300 to 3,000 stores in 3 years. While Sr. VP of Four Seasons Hotels, the brand grew from 8 to 42 properties and from $400M to $2.5B in
revenues. John is also the former President of Dean and Deluca.
In addition to stock in the company, all investors become part of our Founders
Club, where the future perks and discounts outweigh the cost of the initial investment.
We have a sales agreement on a 900-passenger ship that we plan to downsize to
175 cabins after a $26M re-fit. This will result in standard cabins roughly twice the size of industry standards. Post-refit, our cost per berth is 1/3 that of our 5-star competitors, providing a very comfortable break-even point along with significant price flexibility.
Co-Founder Fredy Dellis is the former CEO of a successful 200 unit residence ship called The World at ResidenSea and will lead the sale of 26 luxury one and two bedrooms residences that will be marketed by three of the top-
five global realtors. These sales are projected to net $50M+ after build-out and sales expenses and will be used cover refit and operating capital.
Each week, our ship will have 350 like-minded passengers on board, an experience unmatched by other cruise lines.
We've established strategic marketing partnerships with leading U.S. sports + media companies including Outside Magazine, Hank Haney Golf, well+good, Gaiam, Yoga Journal, and more to come. When combined, these
companies have a targeted active audience of over 30M. A conversion to passenger rate of less than .0005% fills our ship in Year 1.
Our full executive team has held C-Level positions with leading Spa, Hospitality, Cruise, and Fitness brands.
People are tired of the crowded mega-ships that make up the traditional cruise
experience. The market for specialty, single-focus cruises has grown by 105% over the
past 5 years, and in the U.S. alone, there are around 41M people ages 35 - 65
dedicated to healthy lifestyles. To serve this growing population, we're creating a new
market in specialty cruises: ‘active living cruises.’ We plan on serving this market
with 3 ships in 5 years – and we have the executive leadership to make it happen.
