The State of Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation, Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares and Mobile Homes, regulates the Yacht and Ship Brokers, Employing Broker, Yacht and Ship Salesperson licensing. The difference between the yacht salesperson and the yacht broker is that the broker has additional experience in the industry. Florida Chapter 326 of the Florida Statues, the Yacht and Ship Brokers’ Act and Florida Administrative Code Chapter 61B-60, provides details of the state regulations and licensing for yacht and ship brokers and salespersons.
The premium that you pay for a Florida Yacht or Ship Employing Broker, Broker, or Salesperson Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount required and experience. Rates start at $100 for a yacht or ship salesperson, and $250 for a yacht or ship broker or employing broker, with good credit.
