Burgess is delighted to have been appointed Central Agent for the sale of a confidential new listing over 100m in length. This means that the four largest yachts currently on our books, including the 126.2m (414ft) OCTOPUS (above) and the 107.6m (353ft) LUMINOSITY are almost 450m (1,476ft) in total length and with a combined asking price total over EUR 1,000,000,000. This builds on our dominant record in the 80m-plus sector.
'We're rightly proud of our record in large yachting,' says Senior Partner Peter Brown. 'The larger the yacht, the more complex the build and the management, the more intricate the brokerage process, it's all at a different level. Success in this sector is all about experience and, quite simply, we have more than anyone else. For sale and purchase, new construction, management, charter management and insurance, no other brokerage house has our breadth and depth of expertise.'
Our reputation for excellence in this field is well known and we are honoured to share some of the highlights with you.
Burgess New Construction worked with Lurssen to deliver the two largest yachts in the world, AZZAM the longest at 180m (590.6ft) and the 156m (511.8ft) DILBAR, the largest by volume at 15,917GT.
We delivered and sold the 110m (361.2ft) JUBILEE and the 109m (357.6ft) BRAVO EUGENIA, both Oceanco yachts, and the 93m (305.1ft) Feadship LADY S. We also delivered the 133.2m (436.4ft) Kusch Yachts' AL MIRQAB.
The 107.4m (352.4ft) Kleven built ULYSSES, now ANDROMEDA, was sold by Burgess and we worked with Devonport Yachts to deliver the 96m (315ft) VAVA II. We sold the 91.4m (299.9ft) MOONLIGHT II and the 85.6m (280.9ft) CAKEWALK, now AQUILA, yachts we also charter manage. All this is in addition to many confidential projects.
When it comes to yacht management, we are privileged to manage over 100 of the world’s largest yachts cruising worldwide, with 20 percent of these between 80-156m, employing over 2,000 crew. Our track record over the past 30 years has seen consistent growth and we are proud to say that our first managed yacht has remained in our management fleet throughout this time.
Taking care of everything
Our aim is to allow the owner to get maximum enjoyment out of their yacht without the day to day concerns of operational efficiency, technical support, integrated safety and security and managing accounts.
Any large yacht owner interested in exceptional client service, knowledge and expertise in every aspect of ownership will be aware of our reputation for delivering just that. Ours is a totally bespoke service and some of our owners have been working with us for over 30 years, which is both an honour and a testament.
If you are a large yacht owner or you are considering the prospect, we very much look forward to presenting our full range of services to you.
