SAIL AWAY WITH BURGESS THIS SUMMER

Timeless beauty fused with exhilarating performance, sailing yachts epitomise the grandeur of travelling on the high seas. No matter whether you are a sea-lover who enjoys the romance of cruising under a canopy of sails, or a hard and fast racer looking for the thrill of speed, the experience of chartering a sailing yacht is like no other.


The mighty 88m (288.7ft) MALTESE FALCON set new standards in 2006 when she left the Turkish yard Perini Navi.  Her revolutionary sailing system, ‘the Falcon Rig’, was the first of its kind to be seen on the market. The pioneering design saw three self-standing and rotating masts host 15 sails, making a total sail area of 2,400 sqm. Her superior attributes didn’t end there; the Perini Navi Sail Control was updated to ensure unrivalled handling leading to high performance and unmatched safety and all this enables her to reach a top speed of 18 knots, with a range of 3,000nm cruising at 14 knots. Her effortless glide through the water coupled with some of the most luxurious accommodation found on any sailing vessel makes her an ideal charter yacht.

Bespoke fixtures, romantic warm hues and large sails are the hallmarks of ASOLARE. The 47.20 metres (154' 10") ketch, when built, was the largest cold-moulded yacht to ever leave a shipyard.  A true testament to her pedigree, ASOLARE, conceived in 2003, didn’t need a refit until 2014. She is a beautiful fusion of classic in proportion and line with a thoroughly modern control and handling system. Inside, expect three cabins to accommodate six to seven  guests. Andrew Winch designed her interior which sees an inviting ambience where attention to detail is king. Over 350 hand-carved sea motifs perfectly offset the intricate marquetry panels found running throughout. Her superior deck space offers the charterer ample space to enjoy the sea breeze under a canopy of three large sails.

Truly spirited and highly characterful, the stunning 54.9m (180ft) MARIE is one of the most revered sailing yachts on the water. As a charter yacht, her reputation is unrivalled; as a racing yacht, her CV is impressive: she masterfully fuses classic lines with modern performance. Since inauguration in 2010, MARIE has entered and finished in the top three of no less than 11 regattas worldwide with her latest accolade as overall winner at the St Barths Bucket 2015. When not racing her legendary crew create memorable cruises for her charter guests. Four cabins accommodate eight guests with ample social areas for dining, relaxing and sun worshipping.

Built in the 'city of sails', it is little wonder that 56.4m (185.1ft) MONDANGO 3 impressed in both her aesthetics and performance. Launched in 2014 by Auckland-based Alloy Yachts, MONDANGO 3 is a striking performance ketch. She was designed for serious sailing yet expertly doubles as a luxury charter yacht. Turning heads with her impressive rig and low-slung navy blue hull, she is a true world explorer but it isn’t only her aesthetics that caught the eyes of the industry. Her swing keel can be reduced to 16 feet enabling her into the shallowest of harbours, or extended to 36 feet ensuring stability in rough seas. She can reach an impressive speed of nearly 16.5 knots, but cruises comfortably at 12. Her layout is extremely social too with five cabins accommodating 10 guests. On deck she boasts a cleverly concealed whirlpool, flybridge for relaxing and dining at anchor then a garage below the foredeck houses two large tenders for further exploration.
