TYBA’s Mission

At TYBA, our mission is to raise the level of professional service for all global segments of commercial yachts and to make Turkey one of the most reliable and affordable places in the world for chartering, construction, maintenance and mooring of private and commercial yachts.

Yachting can only be improved with the participation of all parties in the sector, including Shipyards, Boat Owners, Brokers and Boat Guests, to increase communication and cooperation between different parties in TYBA and to provide consultancy to government institutions in the Eastern Mediterranean for Yacht Owners and Agencies. We aim to be an important point.

In addition, we aim to establish very close relations with foreign yachting associations, thanks to the devoted efforts and valuable support of many of our members, who have international experience for many years. Coordinating with our colleagues, we aim to provide a much more accessible yachting destination to the Aegean and Mediterranean sailing areas, providing guests as well as boat owners with full rights and transparency of contractual and financial transactions.

TYBA’s Goals:
