About CPYB

Yacht Sales Professionals – YSPs (brokers, dealers, salespeople) nationwide have a benchmark for measuring their skills, abilities and performance, while enhancing their marketing value. Boat sellers and buyers are in a better position to select qualified, competent sales professionals with confidence and trust. The Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program has made this dream a reality.

What is a Certified Professional Yacht Broker?

Thanks to the joint efforts of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA), International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA), Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA), California Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA), Boating Ontario Dealers, Gulf Coast Yacht Brokers Association (GCYBA) and British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA), over 550 YSPs have earned the CPYB designation, with another 100 applicants now preparing for the exam.
