Monaco Yacht Show 2009

Plans are full steam ahead at Burgess for the industry's most prestigious in-the-water event. Come and visit us at stand no. QN21 on the Jetee Nord where you will be warmly invited to arrange viewings, meet with Burgess brokers and managers or simply enjoy the Burgess hospitality.

After their resounding success last year, Burgess are proud to once again be Gold Sponsors of the Red Arrows display; all eyes will be skyward on Thursday 24 September at 2.00pm, for the nail-biting display that is not to missed.

We are delighted to announce that the Burgess courtesy tenders will this year be provided by Wahoo RIBs. The blisteringly quick and sublimely comfortable Baracuda RIBs will be on hand throughout the show for quick and easy transfers between yachts in different parts of the harbour and also to yachts anchored outside the port (weather permitting).

Air Partner, a world class provider of private aviation services is the official jet partner of Burgess for the show. Air Partner representatives will be at hand on the Burgess stand and keen to discuss their Winter JetCard, which introduces two new categories of jet to their fleet including the 'very light jet' which is ideal for short journeys with a small party.

We are also thrilled to announce we have teamed up with BMW for the show this year. A fleet of BMW 7 series courtesy cars will be at the disposal of Burgess clients for the duration of four days.

We look forward to seeing you there!
