CALIFORNIA YACHT BROKERS ASSOCIATION FOUNDED IN 1975
The California Yacht Brokers Association was founded on January 29, 1975. It is a nonprofit organization of yacht brokers and salespersons dedicated to conducting business with integrity, dignity and a high standard of professionalism. To become a member of the association, a member must be sponsored by two broker members, reviewed by the membership committee and approved by the board of directors. These members have joined forces to provide services to the brokerage industry, as well as to protect California boat buyers and sellers. Our Code of Ethics is a cornerstone and industry standard for professional conduct.
FIRST STATE TO REQUIRE LICENSING
California was the first state to require yacht brokers and sales personnel to be licensed and bonded. The efforts of the California Yacht Brokers Association go far beyond that which is required by law. Consumer protection and enhanced services to the boating public are emphasized. Examples of our efforts include our Standardized Forms and our Arbitration Process to settle disputes between consumers and brokers.
