Ellie Franklin

Crew Coordinator

Ellie grew up in Jupiter, Florida where she was always on the water: boating, jet skiing, diving, fishing, wake boarding and SUP. Having a true passion for the ocean, it was inevitable that she’d make a career out of it. She discovered yachting at the age of 24 and began doing local half-day charters for a few years before making the move to make this her career. Six years in the industry, she excelled in her career having worked on vessels up to 60 meters and eventuating in the Chief Stew role.

Wanting then to return to her roots in Florida, but still wanting to be involved in the yacht community, Ellie discovered Luxury Yacht Group through a former colleague of hers who recommended her to the team. After meeting with the crew placement department, Ellie understood that Luxury Yacht Group was unlike any other agency. It was immediately evident that they were earnest in getting to know both the employers and employee and placing crew in a program where they would thrive professionally as well as fit into the social dynamics aboard. Ellie knew this was where she wanted to be and gladly took the opportunity to join the team.

Ellie enjoys helping others in the industry and guiding them in the right direction and this new career allows her to do so. She is happy as a member of the Luxury Yacht Group team, and we are thrilled to have her!
