As brokerage sales and sizes of boats increased, the need for chartering became apparent and a charter department was soon established with a MYBA membership. During this period of success, Lon was invited to serve on the International Yacht Broker’s Association (IYBA) board of directors. During his 8-year tenure, with 2 serving as president, the board was instrumental in passing the FL sales tax cap, creating standardized brokerage agreements and worked with federal lawmakers on duty issues for larger yachts. The IYBA gave Lon notoriety amongst peer brokers and a platform to build the international support of cooperation amongst its members.
