THE MEDITERRANEAN SUPERYACHT SEASON

Every year, as the Caribbean season ends, the world’s greatest superyachts return to the home of yachting – the Mediterranean. Synonymous with luxury and grandeur, the west Mediterranean coast is the quintessential cruising ground. Adorning the coastline are exclusive beach clubs, hideaway coves and Michelin-starred restaurants, however it’s the social calendar that seems to pull in the high end crowds.

In spring the migration begins, peaking in July before cooling down in September and October, and throughout this period a series of seriously decadent events take place along the famous Riviera coast.

MIPIM
10-13 March, 2016

The world’s leading property show arrives in Cannes in March.

With direct access to the show ground, chartering a yacht for its entirety will not only provide a private place to conduct meetings and functions but it will wow your clients too. This year Burgess has a number of yachts still with availability for the show.
