Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago (YSATT)
YSATT (pronounced Why Sat), is the non profit umbrella organization established in 1994 by the boatyards and marinas within the Western Peninsular of Trinidad, to ensure the proper and controlled growth of the yacht service industry in Trinidad & Tobago.
With Trinidad’s fast growing yacht service industry, YSATT's role has become instrumental as a body devoted to the continued growth and well being of the industry, as well as promoting the interests of the yacht service industry, enhancing facilities, advancing the education of those engaged in the yacht service industry and improving industry conditions.
In 1995 YSATT officially employed a full-time secretary and opened an office in 1996. YSATT moved to a central location to better cater the yacht tourist industry. YSATT's functions include lobbying and liaising with government agencies, providing tourist information such as maps, brochures and advice on places in interest, working closely with Customs and Immigration to smooth entry and clearance procedures (we provide substantial funding for their offices at CrewsInn), providing an employment file and environmental awareness. The organisation also encourages training and provides members with statistics and other relevant information pertaining to the yachting industry. YSATT also screens and monitors its members on a continuous basis.
