YachtWorld.com, the world’s largest Internet yacht brokerage portal and a division of Dominion Enterprises, is partnering with the Yacht Broker Association of America to co-present two more Yacht Brokerage Universities (YBU): Mississauga, Ontario on August 4 and Seabrook, TX on August 11. Canadian Yachting and Boating Ontario are also providing industry support for the Yacht Brokerage University in Ontario. ?

'We are pleased to be partnering with YBAA again for two more sessions this year', said Ian Atkins, vice president and general manager, YachtWorld.com. ?Our curriculum underwent substantial change and the feedback from brokers has been very positive. It’s exciting to introduce new educational opportunities to the industry to favorably impact brokers' businesses.'

Based on a survey of brokers who attended the Providence, RI and Annapolis, MD YBUs, 51% rated the overall event as excellent. One broker commented, 'I have been attending these events since you first started putting them on, and this was the best run and organized event yet. I came away feeling that it was a day well spent.'

'Attendees enjoyed the fresh content and program that is guaranteed to provide valuable information and knowledge, as well as interactive dialog with industry experts and industry peers,' announced Vincent Petrella, executive director, YBAA. This is a must-attend event for all yacht sales professionals who want to learn how to grow their business by increasing their value to their clients.

On August 4th, the Yacht Brokerage University will be held at The Waterside Inn in Mississauga, Ontario.

On August 11th, the Yacht Brokerage University will be held at the Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, TX.

The one-day events will feature hosted panel discussions led by industry experts and will include presentations on:
