Florida Yacht Brokers Association(FYBA) announced the organization has changed its name to International Yacht Brokers Association(IYBA). The change will allow the International Yacht Brokers Association to extend it’s outreach on a global scale. “When we mapped out the FYBA membership, it reinforced what we already knew, that FYBA is truly an international organization with members operating in popular yachting areas not just in Florida but around the globe,” said FYBA Executive Director Cindy Sailor. “Our new name, ‘International Yacht Brokers Association’, better reflects who we are − the largest and most prestigious group of professional yacht and charter brokers in the world.”
As a long standing FYBA member, Bradford Marine is pleased to see the industry thriving and the expansion of IYBA is indicative of an increased path for additional member growth.
