Carmine Galati receives CPYB Chairman’s Award


The Certification Advisory Council, which oversees the Certified Professional Yacht Broker program, awarded the 2019 Chairman’s Award to Carmine Galati, founder of Galati Yacht Sales. The CAC comprises seven North American yacht broker associations.

“This award represents the highest level of commitment to truly elevating the professionalism of the yacht brokerage industry,” said CPYB chairman Staley Weidman in a statement. “Galati Yacht Sales has had more brokers become certified in the last two years than any other firm in North America. Carmine sets a fine example of how breaking paradigms of the typical yacht brokerage-house format benefits the buying public and any member of the industry doing business with his firm.”

Galati, who also serves on the International Yacht Brokers Association board of directors, supports charitable organizations such as the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, Tigger Foundation, Billfish Foundation, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

“It has always been a passion and strong belief of mine that in order to succeed and grow, we must embrace continual improvement, as well as knowledge, professionalism, morals and ethics,” Galati said in the statement. “The CPYB program gives up the platform to both test and inspire these principles in our sales team. We at Galati’s require the certification for all our sales team.”
