Charter Yacht Brokers Association

The Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) is a professional organization that represents charter yacht brokers and industry professionals. CYBA was founded in 1982 and is based in the United States.

Statement from the CYBA  “The Mission of CYBA (Charter Yacht Brokers Association, International, Inc.) is to promote and maintain a high degree of professionalism within the Yacht Charter Industry. 

CYBA members are experts in arranging luxury yacht charters for their clients. They provide valuable advice and assistance in selecting the right yacht, itinerary, and crew for a memorable charter experience. Members of CYBA adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, ensuring that they operate with integrity and prioritize the best interests of their clients. In addition to promoting professionalism, CYBA also serves as a resource for industry education and networking opportunities.

The association hosts annual conferences and seminars where members can stay updated on industry trends, regulations, and best practices. CYBA brokers also are required to attend annual charter yacht shows. This is an opportunity for brokers to view the yachts, meet the crews, and sample the chef’s cuisine; they will then know which yachts they are happy to recommend to their clients, taking into consideration their requirements. CYBA is committed to enhancing the knowledge and expertise of its members to provide the highest level of service to charter clients. 

The yacht charter broker is trained in the standard industry charter agreements, contracts, and all legalities of contracts between the client, the clearing house, and the owners of the vessels. Funds are protected through escrow accounts to avoid any fraud. You can check the validity of your CYBA contract by putting the serial number in the search on the CYBA website

To ensure an easy and carefree vacation, brokers will assist in your itinerary planning according to your interests. If you need accommodation before or after your charter, local knowledge of hotels and villas will be shared. Help with how to get there and transportation will also be available to you. 

Brokers will help you with preference sheets that get submitted to your crew. This contains essential information regarding your likes, dislikes, allergies, and what you need to see and do on your charter. 

Overall the Charter Yacht Brokers Associations plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and quality of the charter yacht industry, while also serving as a trusted resource for clients seeking unforgettable yacht charter experiences. 

Here at Epic we know that yacht charters can be a significant investment and we want our clients to know that we will always provide you with the highest level of service.
