Dealer, Yacht Broker Certification Programs Collaborate

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas’ Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program and the Yacht Brokers Association of America’s Certified Professional Yacht Broker Program today announced a collaborative effort to further the development of their respective members. CPYB certification is the boating industry’s brand of excellence for yacht sales professionals throughout North America. The CPYB designation is the most prestigious accreditation a yacht sales professional can earn within the recreational marine industry and CPYB professionals must attain a minimum number of educational credits in order to maintain their Certification. 


What Are You Waiting For?

by JP Skov, CPYB, YBAA President

Recently, it came to my attention how few of us actually take full advantage of the services offered by our association, YBAA. I’m going to make an educated guess that most of you joined YBAA to advance your business. You might have joined for the educational seminars, the ability to network with your fellow brokers, the accreditation that your business gets for being part of an industry related association or for something as simple as gaining access to our professional forms. The bottom line is that by joining an organization such as YBAA you are showing the retail customer that you are a committed professional in the industry. It is my opinion that the single most important thing you can do, as a “Yacht Sales Professional,” is to acquire your CPYB certification as soon as you are eligible. The ability to pass the CPYB exam and become certified is one of, if not the most important benefit available to the members of our association. What are you waiting for?
