Mission of TYBA

At TYBA our mission is to increase the level of professional service for all segments of commercial yachting and to make Turkey one of the most trusted and attractive destinations in the world when it comes to construction, maintenance, mooring and chartering of yachts. 

Under the premise that yachting can only be improved with the participation of all parties in the sector, from constructors & owners of vessels to brokers & charterers, we at TYBA aim to increase communication and collaboration between the different parties and provide guidance to government organisations to make Turkey one of the most attractive destinations in the world of yachting.

In addition, with the dedicated work and valuable input of our many members who have had international experience over the years, we also aim to form very close ties with foreign yachting associations. Coordination with them will make the Mediterranean a much more accessible yachting destination where travelers from around the globe have access to vessels that suit best their preferences.

The objectives of TYBA are plain and simple;
  • Establish close relationships and cooperation with international yachting associations, namely GYA, MYBA, GYA, CYBA, FYBA, AYCA.

  • Establish an insurance pool for members to protect rights of charterers as well as supporting yacht owners and brokers.

  • Organize an annual international charter yacht show in Turkey for Turkish and foreign flag charter yachts under Central Agency Agreement.

  • Participate at international yacht shows and travel fairs and organize workshops in such vents to promote the Turkish coastline and charter fleet.

  • Increase transparency via publishing documents that provide useful information with regards to Turkish charter rules and regulations

  • Promote the use of standardised charter agreements

  • Liaison with government organisations to improve local practices and to keep them compatible with international rules and regulations.

  • Set and administer a code of ethics among our members.

  • Organise seminars and training for yacht personnel.
