Exploring Life & Business with Joshua Green of Standard Yacht

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joshua Green.

Hi Joshua, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My journey to get to where I am today has been a rollercoaster full of creative fun. Growing up, I played saxophone and got good enough at it to earn a music scholarship to Florida A&M University while double majoring in business. I’ve always had a passion for creating things(hence the music), and eventually that translated into business over time.

I am a serial Entrepreneur and Investor. I got my first entrepreneurial taste founding a delivery company in Washington D.C. In 2018, I founded my first Multi-Family Estate Company – GD Equity Partners – which now oversees a $3M AUM portfolio across 210 apartments throughout Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Soon after procuring early success in real estate, I created a growth equity fund – Eagle Capital Trust – that manages over $2M in assets and invests in a wide range of industries such as Real Estate, Technology, Marine & Nautical, and Automotive.

One of my most successful enterprises to date has been Co-Founding Vericare Inc. (2017), the healthcare technology conglomerate overseeing multiple companies in the healthcare and data industry.

A year ago, I fell in love with yachts and boats and rented a few in San Diego for leisure. It was then that it hit me that San Diego needs a LUXURY YACHT EXPERIENCE and I needed to create something that gives people a great feeling when on the water. With that, STANDARD YACHT was born. Standard Yacht provides luxury water experiences for locals and visitors alike on our million dollar luxury yacht available to the public for rent. Cruising by downtown, the Coronado Island, Point Loma, and all the water sights of San Diego has had the city buzzing ever since we began.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids at the beach or enjoying some jazz music. Family is the most important thing to me, so experiencing San Diego has been a treasure.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The barriers to entry were quite large. Starting out with the Yacht Rental business, you learn early on that the Coast Guard has a lot of restrictions and rules. The purpose of these rules is to keep people safe on the water, but sometimes it can be a lot of effort just to comply with certain things. Then on top of the coast guard, the largest hurdle is buying the yacht. I searched all over the United States for the perfect yacht and landed on it all the way out in Florida. I had to fly there, test it, buy it, then ship it across the US Waters through Mexico and up to San Diego which took like three months! Imagine being without your large purchase for months and not knowing exactly where it’s at. That was a headache in and of itself. Those were some of the leaps we had to cross to get the business up and running and serving our San Diego customers.

As you know, we’re big fans of Standard Yacht. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
The Standard Yacht provides luxury yacht rentals to San Diego, locals and visitors alike! Starting at $3,000, we offer specialty tours and experiences inclusive of a 5-start chef, sweeping water views, and the cruise of a lifetime. We also offer water toys, Djs, catering, party planning, etc. for a maximum of 12 passengers.

Any big plans?
