Our History

Our Story

Mar Azul Marine Group was founded by Ernie Portuondo and his family in 2008. Ernie was introduced to the world of boating and fishing at an early age and has loved it ever since. After a very successful 13-year career in Real Estate and Finance, Ernie was able to make the transition into what had always been his passion, the Marine Industry. In 2004, he joined the Allied Richard Bertram Tournament Team and shortly after became a Sales Executive for the company. He was quickly promoted to Sales Manager of the Allied Richard Bertram Miami office.

In September 2008, Ernie decided to branch out on his own and open Mar Azul Marine Group. He established the company as a boutique brokerage offering white glove service to its clients. Ernie’s attention to detail with clients has always exceeded expectations and brought great success to Mar Azul through the years. The company has remained a family business with Ernie’s daughter, Nicole, joining him after graduating from Florida State University in 2016. They opened a service side to the company and became Mercury and Yamaha Certified Dealers to continue the philosophy of white glove service for their clients. In November of 2017, they continued to expand their company and added Marina Operations to their repertoire. They partnered with TREO Group Miami to develop and operate Regatta Harbour Marina in Coconut Grove. Mar Azul Marine Group is a one stop shop for all your boating needs from the day that you purchase a boat to the day that you sell it; they are there for you every step of the way.
