BURGESS ASIA LAUNCHES YACHT MANAGEMENT SERVICES FOR ASIAN CLIENTS 

Following a successful inaugural year, Burgess Asia is proud to announce the launch of its Yacht Management Services division along with the appointment of Asia superyacht expert Joe Yuen.

Burgess Asia launched in 2015 and has since gone from strength to strength boasting an impressive portfolio of both brokerage and charter yachts available in the region. Burgess Asia has offices in Singapore, Tokyo and Hong Kong where Yuen will be based. He will work with his colleagues in Burgess’s global Yacht Management Division to provide Asian-owned and Asia-based yachts with a customised service combining global best practices and deep understanding of the Asian context.

This new initiative marks Burgess’ commitment to providing a level of service that mirrors that of its US and European counterparts. Listening closely to what the Asian market required, Burgess believes that the Yacht Management division will ensure a well-rounded approach to better serving local clients.

Joe Yeun will be instrumental in implementing the next phase of the Asian strategy due to his impressive background in yachting within the region. He joins Burgess following a 13 year career in the maritime industry. After working on several superyacht projects, he created his own company providing management and agency services to superyachts in the region. In addition, Joe is an active contributor to the promotion and development of the superyacht industry in Asia and currently serves as a Committee Member of the Asia Pacific Superyacht Association. 

Jonathan Beckett, group CEO of Burgess commented, “We believe in the importance of this market and are committed to introducing superyachting to a new customer base… We are taking a long term approach to developing the market in Asia".
