THE SHOW WILL GO ON!

VIPCA has decided that with a largely intact charter fleet returning to the VI in November, and by popuar vote by CYBA, that we will still run the USVI Charter Yacht Show 2017. Charter Yacht Brokers will be asked kindly to understand that the show will be a more moderate version than the one originally planned with the focus shifted towards hurricane relief and rebuilding our islands and supporting their communities.

VIPCA Charter Yacht Show 2017
New Brokers, message from CYBA: 
There are lots of yachts to be seen, crews to meet and brokers to fit in. In order, to get the most out of the charter yacht show CYBA recommends that ALL new brokers complete the New Broker Online Course presented by CYBA (Charter Yacht Broker Association).

The course is designed to give you a thorough knowledge of the yacht charter business, and provide a resource for you to refer back to for guidance as your career evolves.” Are you former, or soon to be former, crew ? Many of the same have completed the course ahead of you and admit they learnt much more than they thought they would.
