Burgess at The Dubai International Boat Show 2017

Following the opening of Burgess in Dubai, the company is delighted to be attending the 25th Dubai International Boat Show held at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi from February 28 – March 4, 2017.


For five days, the shores of the UAE will be filled with some of the finest superyachts in the region along with other high end luxury products including a supercar promenade. The foremost show in the Middle East, the show attracts visitors from across the GCC and the wider region each year and with ambitious expansion plans for the marina, along with the maritime industry in general, Dubai is set to firmly put its mark on the global superyacht market.

This year, Burgess will be in attendance to showcase its new Dubai operation in the Middle East plus a number of impressive sales and charter listings. Several senior brokers from the global Burgess team will be on hand to guide clients through the show including our new managing director in Dubai, Jonathan Hind.

We are delighted to be participating in the 2017 Dubai International Boat Show marking Burgess’ move into the Middle East and to be exhibiting some exceptional yachts such as JOY. It is a very exciting time in the GCC with grand expansion plans for the maritime industry and we look forward to bringing Burgess' professional approach and expertise to our clients in the region and cementing Burgess’ position as the global authority on superyacht brokerage and charter,’ comments Jonathan.

In addition to the yachts on display, Burgess has teamed up with Rolls Royce to provide a chauffeured transfer service for the company’s VIP clients throughout the show.

Join the team on location at our stand, or on one of our exhibiting superyachts listed below, and for more information or to arrange a visit please contact your Burgess broker.

Built: 2016, Feadship, Royal Van Lent
Guests: 12 in 8 cabins
Cruising speed: 12 knots
For charter from USD 700,000 per week

Brand new charter yacht JOY has immediately captured the attention of experienced charterers and the industry has a whole after receiving the award for Best Exterior Design and Styling above 48m at the Showboats Design Awards 2017.

Custom built and delivered in July 2016, JOY is the remarkable result of collaboration between the Royal Van Lent shipyard and Bannenberg & Rowell who were responsible for her stunning exterior styling. Studio Indigo brought a fresh and vibrant perspective to the interior design in this their first superyacht project.

Leisure, enjoyment, well-being and relaxation are all well accounted for aboard JOY. The yacht is equipped throughout with a state-of-the-art audio visual system including Kaleidescape for movies on demand and satellite TV. A wide array of watersports facilities comprises two large powerful tenders, two 3m turbojet tenders, an inflatable slide, waterskis, a wakeboard, tows, inflatable kayaks, snorkelling gear, fishing equipment and plenty of children’s water toys. Unusually, a games pitch is located forward on the owner’s deck and is cordoned off with 2m high safety netting

to create an amazing outside sports area for volleyball, football and basketball activities. The large sea level beach club is designed to transform into a nightclub or party zone and the sun deck is appointed with a large jacuzzi with bar, barbecue and sun loungers. Full massage and beauty treatments are offered by the trained on board therapist and a spa area with steam room and shower is located on the lower deck. Of special note is the very impressive and professionally equipped gym on the bridge deck aft which displays a striking skylight feature into the jacuzzi above.

Built: 2015, SILVERYACHTS, Australia
Guests: 18 in 8 cabins
Cruising speed: 25 knots
For sale: EUR 79,500,000
For charter: Please enquire

The largest and fastest aluminium motor yacht ever built with conventional propulsion, SILVER FAST has a top speed of 27 knots and a long range cruising ability of 20-22 knots. Her unusually shallow 2.6m (8.5ft) draft allows her to access cruising grounds that many yachts of her size can’t reach.

The fourth in the hugely successful SILVERYACHTS series, she follows the multi-award-winning SILVER, SILVER ZWEI and SMERALDA. This brand new yacht has a sleek, streamlined profile by Espen Oeino and contemporary décor by Vain Interiors. A popular series within the Middle East.

Stand-out features include a spectacular ‘winter garden’ with wraparound sliding glass panels that create an indoor/outdoor, air conditioned dining space for 20 guests. The sun deck has a glass-fronted jacuzzi with capacity for eight guests and an outdoor cinema, while the comprehensive beach club features a full spa area with sauna, steam room, gym, massage room and beauty salon.

Stylish accommodation is provided for up to 18 guests in eight cabins, made up of an owner’s suite with its own lounge and large private deck, three VIP suites, a double cabin, three twin cabins and two pullman berths.

SILVER FAST has a touch-and-go helipad suitable for an Agusta 109 or EC 135 on her foredeck, and storage underneath for two 7.6m (24.9ft) customised tenders housed in a unique forward garage with gull-wing doors. This highly innovative, ultra-modern superyacht is fuel efficient and has a range of 4,500 NM at 18 knots and 6,000 NM at 14 knots.

37.2m (122ft)
Built: 1978 CRN Ancona, Italy
Guests: 12 in 5 cabins
Cruising speed: 12 knots
For Sale: USD 6,950,000 Tax Paid

NORDIC STAR (37.2m), new to the Burgess sales fleet, will be joining the line up at the Dubai International Boat Show. 

Delivered in 1978 by renowned Italian yard CRN Ancona, this classic vessel has been maintained to exacting standards following a refit in 2008 and again in 2012.

Originally commissioned by starlet Virna Lisi, Italy’s answer to Marilyn Monroe, this vessel showcases the glamour of a bygone era. No stranger to entertaining, she was used to host a number of Hollywood stars from stage and screen.

NORDIC STAR’s technical capabilities include a range of 2,800 nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots and tops 15 knots at full power.

Her unique and vibrant interior featuring sumptuous woods was also created by CRN and offers accommodation for five guests over 12 cabins in a configuration of three doubles, two twin with two additional berths. This tri-deck yacht offers numerous options for al fresco dining, or socialising with friends and family.

35M (115ft)
Built: 2003, Benetti, Italy
Guests: 10 in 5 cabins
Cruising speed: 13 knots
For sale: EUR 5,900,000

Designed by Stefano Righini, DXB is a stylish example of the ever popular Benetti 115 series, best known for their strong lines and highly indulgent interiors. One of the defining characteristics of a yacht hailing from this range is its well thought out space making her feel a lot bigger than her actual size. This is evident in her large owner’s suite and tender garage, used to keep deck space clutter free. Her luxurious interior by Francois Zuretti creates a comfortable and elegant atmosphere. Utilising soft furnishings by  Hermes, DXB exudes sophistication. Accommodation is spread over three decks accommodating 10 guests across five cabins. Outdoor space is also cleverly designed maximising leisure and relaxation areas. Expect a jacuzzi on the sun deck with a lounging area, and a further two al fresco dining options aft. A yacht with a great charter potential, DXB has a cruising speed of 13 knots and an impressive 3,000 nm range, giving the yachtsman yearning for extended cruising a host of opportunities.
