YACHT ASSOCIATIONS GUIDES
As the superyacht industry has grown, associations of like-minded people within the yachting sector have come together to ensure various areas of yachting truly represent the interests of those to whom to matters. Without the power of associations, there's no doubt the beneficial changes that have been made globally to support the industry (better regulation around crew employment and rights, for example) would have been much slower to come to fruition, or wouldn't have happened at all.
We've written some guides to help you understand some of the yacht associations out there, what their goals are, and how you can get involved yourself.
As the main association of interest to superyacht crew, the PYA represent many interests on behalf of wider superyacht crew globally, focusing on change to working conditions and regulations to foster a better industry for all to work within.
Covering interests of crew, owners, and businesses within the industry, the ISS looks at everything from media perceptions of the superyacht industry to the recommended best practices for businesses operating within the sector.
