YCA offers benefits financial session

ADVERTISEMENT

The new Yacht Captains Association (YCA) has launched the first of its affinity programs for members, discounts with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, and Sixt Rent A Car.

The YCA also organized a financial planning session in May to help yacht captains and their spouses/partners, provided by Fidelity Investments in Ft. Lauderdale. Interested captains can RSVP at yca@yachtcaptains.org. Space is limited.

 

“In addition to our ongoing initiatives designed to forge a global, peer-to-peer network of professional yacht captains who will collaborate on priorities and help each other address the challenges inherent in a rapidly growing industry, our affinity programs quickly will demonstrate the value of a YCA membership to every captain’s financial bottom line,” said Ian Bone, a co-founder of the group and chairman of its board.
