Remember to Look for the CYBA Logo when planning your next crewed charter vacation!
Why choose a crewed charter vacation? You work hard all year, and now it’s time to play! If you are like most of us, you only have two or three weeks a year to relax and unwind, so this time is extremely valuable to you, and you don’t want to waste your hard earned money or your time.
The Benefits of using a CYBA Broker: There are hundreds of charter yachts to choose from, but how to choose? One looks just as nice as the next, but is this what they really look like today, or what they looked like 5 years ago, when the photo was taken? Each yacht looks just as nice as the next but the accuracy and reliability of the photographs can not be authenticated (or trusted) from looking at them on the internet. And, what about the crew? Are they the kind of people that you’ll want to spend a week with? Will they be good with children, couples or your multi-generational vacation group?
These are very important questions which cannot be answered by looking at an Internet website, or browsing through brochures. You need the advice of someone who has actually seen that yacht plus lots of others and met the crew so they can compare and help you find the best match. Such a person is called a Charter Yacht Broker and they can help you to compare yachts to find your very best choice. But, just like the boats, there are good brokers and not-so-good brokers. So, how do you choose the right one?
How to find a CYBA Broker? Look for the CYBA logo in the broker’s advertisement or on their website, and ask the person that you talk with if they are a CYBA member. Working with a CYBA member gives you assurance that you are dealing with a real charter professional. Fill out the Request a Yacht Charter Quote on the right and get started today!
Requirements of a CYBA Active Member and Broker: Each CYBA applicant must meet rigid membership requirements, including experience in the field, proper use of charter documents, ethical business practices, attendance at charter yacht shows to see yachts and meet the crews, and a review by his or her peers, prior to acceptance. CYBA members are also required to place your charter deposit in an independent escrow account, and to follow through with your charter arrangements after the yacht is chosen, to assure you of a fantastic vacation experience – probably the best you’ve ever had!
