FYBA gets the ‘F’ out

ADVERTISEMENT

The Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA) has changed its name to the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA).

“When we mapped out the FYBA membership, it reinforced what we already knew, that FYBA is truly an international organization with members operating in popular yachting areas not just in Florida but around the globe,” FYBA Executive Director Cindy Sailor said. “Our new name better reflects who we are − the largest and most prestigious group of professional yacht and charter brokers in the world.”

Founded nearly 30 years ago, IYBA has more than 1,350 individual members representing more than 400 businesses. Its members are responsible for 20 percent of all international yacht sales, as well as 50 percent of all U.S. domestic yacht sales and 80 percent of all yacht sales transactions in the state of Florida.

IYBA’s ongoing mission is to raise the standard of professionalism among its members as well as within the international yacht and charter brokerage industries.
