Captain Jack Stewart, sales manager for Yarmouth Boat Yard, recently earned the esteemed status of Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB). The CPYB Certification is the mark of excellence for yacht sales professionals throughout North America.
To earn this designation, CPYB brokers must meet professional qualifications and successfully pass a stringent three-hour examination, testing their skills and knowledge as yacht sales professionals. Brokers must be well informed of current market conditions, ascertain all pertinent facts concerning listed vessels, and protect against fraud, misrepresentation, and unethical practices.
To date, only 10 individuals have earned this prestigious distinction in Maine and approximately 600 in the United States.
“At Yarmouth Boat Yard, we are committed to excellence and professionalism,” stated Steve Arnold, owner of Yarmouth Boat Yard. “The CPYB standards and code of ethics parallels our beliefs of focusing on the customer,” Arnold explained. “Having Captain Jack CPYB certified backs up this dedication, as it sets standards for training and performance, and promotes impeccable customer service.”
