Boat market amid COVID-19

Due to the unusual circumstances of the Covid19  virus in the State of California, our ‘business as usual’ is not, in fact, usual.   You will find most CYBA brokers operating their offices in a limited capacity and typically will meet with client on an appointment basis only.   Please respect the fact that they are trying to meet the requirements of the State of California and still trying to be of service to the recreational boating public of California.  Contact your local CYBA member brokerage by email or phone to find what their local policy will be.  Good luck and remember to enjoy the water safely.

CYBA Arbitration

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.
