The IYBA provides educational seminars and services to its members to strengthen the ability of our industry to remain abreast of legal, technical, and environmental issues that affect the marine community throughout the state.
As an advocate of one of the Sunshine State's largest industry (the marine industry), the IYBA serves as a united voice for yacht brokers in the legislative and regulatory processes. By actively engaging with state and local legislators, the IYBA's lobbying efforts have protected and nurtured the health of the yachting community since its inception.
Along with professional oversight, IYBA joined the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA) in funding and establishing the Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program. For a complete list of our Code of Ethics we invite you to go to our By-Laws, Article XV.
The IYBA provides many opportunities to network through our social and professional events and seminars. Our publication, COMPASS, is an informative magazine updating our members 8 times a year with articles on legislation and maritime law, Member News, and Bulletin Board.
