At Burgess we believe in what we do. And we believe in doing it to the best of our abilities. Best practice pervades every aspect of our business and we believe that our approach to sustainability should be no different.
Our company was founded by Nigel Burgess, a renowned solo ocean sailor with an obsessive eye for detail and a love for the sea. We, both collectively and as individuals, are passionate about what we do and seek to share this enthusiasm with both our clients and the wider maritime community.
The health of the world’s oceans is the reason that we are able to work in this exceptional industry but we know that our business has a direct impact on the ocean and the communities that rely on it. We acknowledge that we have a responsibility to reduce that impact and to work to create a more sustainable superyacht industry.
Striving to be an environmentally sound company is more than good business practice: it is the responsibility of industry leaders the world over. The superyacht industry is not going to change overnight but we believe that like-minded people who are driven by the same objective can ensure that this industry uses its collective knowledge, experience and capabilities to become a beacon for technological development and a force for good.
