Jeff Merrill and Kevin Marinelli (from Ontario, Canada) presented a two hour Zoom meeting course review on March 14th.

Jeff was in California, Kevin in Canada and Trish Harley from CPYB organized the attendees. The PowerPoint review was provided to a dozen CPYB exam candidates, in anticipation of sitting for the three hour/145 question exam.

Both Jeff and Kevin are CPYB’s and are members on the CAC, Certification Advisory Council. It was a serious, educational and fun session. In addition to the prepared content, Jeff and Kevin shared their experiences to help everyone get ready for the test.

Becoming a Certified Professional Yacht Broker is the ultimate credential in the Marine industry for yacht brokers.

Career yacht brokers and smart boat buyers and sellers know the advantages of working with a CPYB.  It is a commitment to professionalism (including continuing education) that separates CPYB’s from practicing brokers who don’t have the same level of expertise.

Jeff is a huge supporter and is always encouraged to see the number of dedicated yacht sales professionals who work hard to obtain this high level of accreditation.
