ABYA's Professional Yacht Brokerage two-day intensive course is highly beneficial as an introduction to professional brokerage for non-members as well as offering essential training for existing member brokers seeking to maintain their professionalism and competitive edge.

Course leader Owen Box, a former ABYA President, has brokerage experience over many years. The speakers on the course are marine industry professionals in their specialist fields and provide topical and instructive lectures relating to Marine Law, VAT, Insurance, Marine Finance, Registration, the Internet, Selling Skills, Surveying & the RCD, plus an insight into new boat sales.

One year's free membership of ABYA is available to delegates on successful completion of the course, providing they are working in brokerage and can submit a complete sales file, and have PI insurance.

ABYA holds its Professional Yacht Brokerage Course three times a year.
