IYB grows, adds division, staff

ADVERTISEMENT

International Yacht Bureau, the Ft. Lauderdale-based flag-state inspectors, has surpassed 500 yachts in its register and has launched an Advisory Services Division.
Since its official launch in October of 2006, IYB has experienced continued growth through the statutory certification of private and commercial yachts on behalf of the world’s leading yacht registries. From its beginnings in Ft. Lauderdale, IYB has expanded to 35 locations in the Americas, Europe and Asia with surveyor availability in every major yachting location worldwide. This network is backed by a team of master mariners, naval architects, and marine engineers experienced in the complex world of maritime regulations, but dedicated solely to yachts. IYB now represents more than 10 major flags, with more expected to enter the yachting market soon.
The new Advisory Services Division will provide 24/7 emergency support to all yachts of any flag and includes the environmental response as a Qualified Individual required by the U.S. Coast Guard for Nontank Vessel Response Plans (NTVRP). Consulting services will complement the company’s experience as flag-state inspectors. The options range from training manuals and safety management systems to pre-MCA survey assessments and assistance with implementation of the upcoming Maritime Labour Convention.
To lead this new division, Capt. Bill Feaster has been added to the IYB team. Feaster recently worked with MedAire and the Marshall Islands Yacht Registry.
IYB’s president and chief surveyor is Capt. Jake DesVergers, who writes The Triton’s monthly Rules of the Road column on B1.
