About ECPY

Created in January 1993, ECPY, The European Committee for Professional Yachting is an association of yachting professionals that brings together all industry’s activities (yacht brokers, central agents, yacht owners, shipyards, suppliers, insurers, craftsmen, legal consultants, classification societies…). 

ECPY focuses its actions on the economic development of the yachting industry and defends the interests and good practices of professionals, while cooperating with administrations, the government and the European Union to ensure a fair balance between the development of local, national and European regulations on the one hand, and the economic, environmental and social development of yachting on the other.
