We are pleased to announce that Simon Cox, Vancouver Island Regional Manager for Yacht Sales West has recently acquired his "Certified Professional Yacht Broker" (CPYB) accreditation.
"I love sailing. I love people. And, I love yachts. My passion for working with people and their boats has driven my success to date. I joined the Yacht Sales West team because we represent and service the yachts I would be proud own and sail myself, and because I am empowered to stand behind my clients to ensure they receive a good value and proper service for their investment. I have helped many people buy and sell yachts over the years and made a lot of friends along the way. I am proud to be on the Board of Directors of the BCYBA and to be a Certified Professional Yacht Broker. Recognized associations such as these promote a standardized code of ethics and professionalism that grant me access to the resources to ultimately provide better service and protection for my clients." said Simon.
"I grew up sailing dinghies in Cadboro Bay and cruising the Gulf Islands. The salt is still in my blood. Swiftsure, Southern Straits, RIPS Race Week or racing around the buoys in Maple Bay, I love the camaraderie and competition of a good yacht race. My wife and I and our nine-month-old son enjoy exploring new favourite spots in the Gulf Islands. Sometimes, nothing beats a summer evening on the bay in our little day sailor." concluded Simon. In 2010,
Simon moved back to Vancouver Island to better serve the needs of our clients from the Island. To date he has assisted dozens of buyers and sellers from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands to achieve their goals.
