Young Professionals In Yachting
We are dedicated, enthusiastic and ethical young professionals networking, sharing knowledge, and nurturing long-lasting relationships to achieve success and global recognition within the yachting industry.

Regular meetings occur monthly and consist of sharing industry news, hosting professional development seminars with talks by top industry leaders and fostering professional development. We allow members to share any industry news or updates for discussions and encourage new ideas and member collaboration. The association also hosts sponsored social events for networking opportunities.
Membership is limited to land-based business professionals within the yachting industry between the ages of 21 and 40.

“Now that the organization has gained momentum in South Florida, we look forward to the addition of Monaco and London chapters of Young Professionals in Yachting. We now aim to sustain our South Florida chapter, successfully grow our European counterparts, and to eventually provide a platform for all worldwide members to connect as well. The organization will make small differences to adapt to European culture, but its mission and operation will emphasize the same principles.”John JarvieFormer YPY President
