New Build Next Steps: Taking Delivery

For a new build project, once the sea trials are completed and your superyacht is ready for delivery, the scope and depth of the Burgess teams’ expertise truly come into play. From finding the right mix of professional crew to offering financial and insurance expertise, there is a specialist team on hand to assist you through the early stages after delivery, extending throughout the operation of a new superyacht.


As a new build project draws to a close, the operational responsibilities of a superyacht shift from the build team to the captain and crew. Burgess Technical Services has experience with dozens of the world’s largest and most operationally complex superyachts, and can help the captain and senior crew to set off on the right path to professional operation, while appreciating that each superyacht and owner is unique.

Aside from ensuring the yacht meets basic regulatory standards for legal operation, the Burgess Management team is on hand to give advice, support and assistance in all aspects of operation. With increasingly complex regulations, such as those covered in the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, the support and breadth of knowledge that an experienced and informed yacht manager can provide to a captain is invaluable.

Our shore-based support team at Burgess Management will be able to assist the operational crew wherever and however necessary, backed up by the newly launched Burgess Manage technical archiving software. The Burgess Yachting Financial Services team is on hand from the start of the fiscal considerations to ensure your asset is protected and your money managed responsibly.


A maiden voyage is an exciting time for any new owner, and a great way to celebrate the new delivery. If your superyacht was built in Northern Europe, why not take the opportunity to explore cultural hotspots and natural beauty of Scandinavia? Or from Italy, head east and explore the stunning landscapes and rich heritage of the Adriatic and Eastern Mediterranean? The Burgess staff is on hand to provide recommendations, whichever bearing you choose.


If you have chosen to charter your yacht, it is important to ensure you market it to its full potential. Newly delivered vessels are often popular on the charter market but in order to stand out from the crowd it is critical to put together a dynamic and attractive marketing campaign. The Burgess Charter Management team has a wide network of agents to which it will promote your vessel, as well as contacts in luxury media for valuable coverage.


Beyond the scope of the original build, in every likelihood your relationship with the Burgess Technical Services team will continue into the future, as many owners go on to build more superyachts, often larger and more complex than the previous. The advantage of working with the same team again is that they will have an in-depth understanding of the way you like to work and what you want from a boat. If you build again, the Burgess Brokerage team will be on hand to help sell your previous yacht before you take delivery of the new one.

The building of a superyacht is often a lifelong dream for an owner, and is something that should be managed with professionalism in order to realise its full potential. There are many complex steps along the way to a new build project, and Burgess Technical Services is here to make it a pleasurable experience.
