United City Yachts with full staff has eleven brokers, a full staff of admin, and managers to assist our brokers. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and cooperative company; Each broker has a designated and protected territory, we are able to share best practices and strategies without fear of having to ever “compete” with each other.
