We just want to thank each investor (at last count 184) and every follower (484 as of this update) that we've had the pleasure of engaging with here on Republic over the past weeks. We're passionate about introducing the first cruise company and ship focused 100% on fitness, wellness and personal discovery, and would do it anyway, but your support and all the wonderful comments we're receiving really "float our boat"!
My partner Fredy Dellis and I are on our way to NYC next week to meet with Seabury Marine , a division of Seabury Capital and the leading investment banking and consultancy firm focused on the global maritime industry. We’re excited to be working with them, and based on the interest expressed so far, we anticipate closing this “Series A” round of funding within the next 60 – 90 days. We can then execute the purchase of one of the three ships we’ve chosen as the most suitable for our concept, and plans.
While we’re in New York, we have also scheduled deskside meetings and interviews with key journalists at leading business and consumer publications. This should generate even more of the excellent news coverage Blue World Voyages has received throughout 2019, all referenced on our website, (www.blueworldvoyages.com) – including the recent praise from Outside Magazine that we highlighted last week..

Thanks again, everyone. We sincerely enjoy interacting with you here on Republic, and hope to welcome each one of you onboard in 2021.
