CPYB PROGRAM NOW RECOGNIZED ON THE DISCOVER BOATING WEB SITE

Discover Boating

Dating back to the start of the Grow Boating Initiative, improving the consumer experience before and after the sale has been a priority.  Both the NMMA’s Certified Boat and the MRAA’s Marine Industry Certified Dealership programs have been successful in raising the bar in their respective areas. The Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program is another key initiative that will raise the level of service for the boating consumer. Given that many first time buyers enter the recreational boating industry through a pre-owned boat purchase it’s important that their first experience is a good one.  We are pleased to add content to the Discover Boating websites to increase the awareness of this important initiative.  Let’s work together to change the old saying to be, the best two days of a boater’s life….is Saturday and Sunday.  We look forward to your continued success.

Advantage…CPYB

Doug Wielhouwer

 

Are you looking for a way to differentiate your business from the competition? We were and did! It occurred to us that we were not promoting a major benefit that we held, the CPYB Endorsed Brokerage Program.  An accomplishment that each of us had a part in attaining and were proud of achieving.  Only a small percentage of companies have realized this distinction.

As a past member of the YBAA Board of Directors, I recall many conversations about how best to get the word out to the consumer about the CPYB program, how to educate the public as to the meaning of “CPYB” and also how working with a CPYB can prove beneficial for them.
