Buyers and sellers, hopefully, enter into CYBA purchase agreements in good faith, but later disputes may surface. Our association was one of the first to draft a comprehensive set of listing and sale forms for our member’s use. The sole remedy for dispute resolution in the forms is mandated arbitration. In an arbitration hearing, the dispute is heard by panelists who are industry experts and understand proper industry procedure vs. going before a judge who may have no knowledge of how the yacht brokerage industry operates.
