					PRESS RELEASE


               SEA-ALLIANCE GROUP WELCOMED AS A MEMBER OF MYBA


7 July 2010 – The international maritime business Sea-Alliance Group (SAG) is the latest
company to become a full corporate member of the MYBA – The Worldwide Yachting
Association. SAG provides leading services in yacht charters as well as sales and purchase, new
construction, yacht management, marinas and marine projects.


MYBA, which was founded in 1984 by a group of prominent yacht brokers, aims to promote
standards of professionalism and ethics in the global yachting industry. Membership is
demanding and only granted to companies which can demonstrate a proven track record of
professional excellence in the yachting industry.


To become a member of both MYBA and a MYBA.net subscriber, SAG had to successfully
complete the prestigious organisation‟s rigorous selection process. Such stringent entry
requirements ensure valuable benefits and safeguards to clients choosing to purchase, sell, build
or charter a yacht through a MYBA broker.


Among the entry requirements was a need for SAG representatives to demonstrate the
company‟s industry know-how and expertise, and for MYBAnet access, to provide evidence of
previous sales and purchase deals as well as its success in yacht charters. SAG also had to have
references from existing MYBA members confirming satisfactorily conducted business.


The MYBA.net is the number one website for brokers looking for charter yachts for clients and
has an online database of almost 1,500 yachts registered in its systems. SAG currently has three
yachts – the MY Ancora, MY Donizetti and MY Darsea – listed on the website as available for
charter.


Itay Singer, Director of SAG, said: “Becoming a member of the MYBA is a great achievement for
us. It‟s fantastic to be recognised as a leader in our field and we feel very privileged to be
accepted into the association.
“Since 2003, SAG decided to model itself on MYBA business standards and ethics and global
networking and European standards of work to the highest levels and this membership will
increase our visibility and credibility in the industry even further.”

companies, not including branch offices in France, Monaco, Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Germany,
Switzerland, Hong Kong, and the US. Their collective expertise of well over a century covers the
