  1. There is a perception that we’re a large yacht broker, that we only sell yachts over 50m (165ft) – and we have enjoyed industry-leading success in that sector. However, the truth might surprise you. In the last five years, over 60 percent of the yachts we have sold were 50m (165ft) or under in length. Yes, Burgess sells more yachts under 50m than over 50m. Our brokers bring the same professionalism, deal-making craft – and success – to the 30-50m (100-165ft) range. Burgess excels at selling yachts like yours.
