Brokerage seminars to discuss recent court decision

This year's slate of one-day Yacht Brokerage University events held annually in various cities will feature a review of the recent Florida court decision that found HMY Yacht Sales liable for $1.7 million in damages after a customer claimed the 66-foot yacht he bought in 2007 was not seaworthy. (Look for an in-depth report on the ruling in an upcoming issue of Soundings Trade Only.)

Each YBU event is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The dates are:

  • July 20: Doubletree Hotel, Annapolis, Md.
  • July 22: Marriott Hotel, Providence, R.I.
  • Sept. 8: Lakewood Yacht Club, Seabrook, Texas
  • Sept. 15: Toronto.

YBU regional seminars also offer members updates on technology and Internet sales services, preparation for the CPYB Yacht Broker Certification exam, networking opportunities and participation in presentations and panel discussions.
