If you have read our ABOUT page you will know that AYB conducts a lot of research in subjects of interest to Yacht Brokers (and in many cases, also to the yachting public at large)

We are currently operating from Gulf Awa Navy alongside the beautiful lake Tarnita in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania.

Research Projects are designed to find economical and effective systems and products for the benefit of Yacht Brokers  as well as Houseboat and Yacht owners.

Some of the solutions are suitable for a much wider audience, but we always have in mind the independent Yacht Broker who has to manage everything and survive the inevitable peaks and troughs of cash-flow in spite of the very high cost of advertising

You may profit by these conclusions from selected AYB Research Projects.
