- About Us
Burgess was built on a love of yachting. Founded in 1975 by Nigel Burgess, renowned sailor and worldwide single-handed ocean racer, he created a company with an obsessive eye for detail that put clients first every time.
From our original office in London in 1975 we now span the world, with branches catering to clients in major locations. Each office is led by an exceptional individual in keeping with the belief that quality is defined by the calibre of our team. Quite simply, we believe ours to be the best there is. Meet them and judge for yourself.
Chief Executive Jonathan Beckett has led Burgess to become the world's number one superyacht brokerage house. In recognition, in 2001 we became the first yacht brokerage firm ever to receive the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise. We continue to lead from the front in every facet of our operation.
