YachtWorld.com recently partnered with the Yacht Broker Association of America to co-present Yacht Brokerage Universities in Warwick, R.I., and Annapolis, Md.

The events broke previous attendance records, according to the group.

“We launched a new agenda this year that included sales strategies from a professional sales trainer and open forum panels featuring local brokers and industry leaders,” Courtney Chalmers, director of marketing for YachtWorld.com, said in a statement. “The feedback from brokers has been very positive.”

YachtWorld.com and the YBAA are holding more Yacht Brokerage Universities in Toronto on Aug. 4 and Houston on Aug. 11.

YachtWorld.com also said it recently held its inaugural Principals’ Dinner for selected principals and owners to honor the knowledge, experience and expertise that shape the future of the marine industry.

The dinner was held at Harry Browne’s restaurant in Annapolis, Md., and attendees were invited to discuss issues that are affecting the marine industry and share new ideas and their views about the future of the brokerage industry.

“The YachtWorld.com Principals’ Dinner was an encouraging venue for the best and brightest marine industry business owners to share information vital to the success of not only the individual businesses, but to the entire marine industry. The casual and relaxed atmosphere fostered the open, unencumbered dialogue between principals, and as a result was extremely productive,” Vincent Petrella, executive director of YBAA, said in a statement.

YachtWorld.com and Soundings Trade Only are divisions of Dominion Enterprises.
