CYBA launches Save the Blue

Nov 18, 2014 by Guest Writer

The Charter Yachts Brokers Association (CYBA) has launched the 2014 “Save the Blue” Awards, its third annual recognition of charter yachts that make the effort to become more eco-friendly.

This year, charter yachts must meet more criteria, but the online application survey takes less time to complete. In the past two years, nearly 100 yachts per year earned the award, from the 44-foot catamaran S/V Mimbaw to the 129-foot M/Y Safira.

Winners participating in the Caribbean shows will be given a rosette and name badge. Yachts can also enter to win our “Most Eco-friendly Charter Yacht” award.

To apply, visit www.cyba.net/goinggreen.
