Buying and selling large yachts requires a slightly different set of disciplines. It’s not a specialism open to everyone and there are several reasons why, in the 80m+ sector, our track record simply can’t be matched.
For a start, Burgess has the largest and most experienced senior brokerage team in the business, with several brokers having been with the company for over 20 years. That experience is priceless. The contacts and working relationships built over that time, the industry knowledge gained, the transaction problems faced and overcome, it is of immense value to you, the client.
Part of the reason for this long service is that, uniquely, Burgess brokers are fully employed, not contracted. That means we can share data gathered by expert brokers all around the world to find the right opportunities, wherever they are. Burgess brokers work collaboratively to develop deals. They work for you, not for themselves.
However, as a full-service superyacht company, our expertise extends beyond the commercial. Burgess is not simply the market leader in the sale and purchase of large yachts, we also manage more 80m+ yachts than any other company. This means we know more about maintenance history, running costs and operational best practice than anyone else.
The result of this is that Burgess has the largest market share in both yachts sold and yachts listed for sale in the 80m+ sector.

We could look back to 2018 when we sold the 110m Oceanco JUBILEE, the 107m Kleven ULYSSES and the 85m ARETI, but let’s focus on the more recent large yacht transactions we have successfully concluded.
