MIAMI, July 22, 2020 – YachtWorld is a proud supporter of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA) and their Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program that provides valuable resources and services to strengthen the yacht sales profession. To celebrate YBAA’s 100th anniversary this year, last week at the virtually-held YBAA University educational events, YachtWorld announced their YBAA 100th Anniversary Scholarship fund to support and encourage more members to achieve their CPYB designation.


“Throughout the years, we have been inspired by the enthusiasm, passion and success that each member brings to this organization,” said Courtney Chalmers, Boats Group’s vice president of marketing. “YBAA members are among our industry’s top sales professionals who are committed to the highest ethical standards, and as YBAA celebrates 100 years of service, we applaud their tremendous milestone by providing resources to help fund the association’s continued dedication to professionalism, education, and the growth of boating.”

At a time when everyone is learning to navigate this new normal and interest in boats is climbing at historic levels, this available scholarship opportunity for CPYB certification serves as a timely reminder of the importance of investing in professional development and serving the boating public with the highest level of industry accreditation.

“YachtWorld has been a long-time supporter of the CPYB program and they show that commitment year after year as the program’s ‘Diamond Sponsor’,” said Jean-Pierre (J.P.) Skov, CPYB, YBAA’s Executive Director and former president. “YachtWorld believes deeply in the fundamental importance of education and certification for yacht sales professionals, and by establishing a scholarship to honor our members in celebration of our 100th year anniversary, it further reinforces their commitment to yacht sales professionals.”
