CYBA’s E-Contract system was purposefully architected to assist in meeting your contract needs to help facilitate and ensure smooth client transactions that save time and money for both parties. Clients expect to sign a contract that is specific to yacht charters and used and recognized throughout the yachting industry, instead of an unknown or individually prepared contract. CYBA E-Contract provides charter brokers with exactly that—a recognizable industry approved contract creates a trust between brokers and clients that will keep your transactions moving.
