Monaco's Port Hercule

What to expect from Burgess at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show

22 September 2022• Written by Laura Nicholls for Burgess

With more than 40 years of experience in the brokerage market, Burgess’ leading team of brokers are no strangers to the Monaco Yacht Show, and this year, the firm has plenty to shout about…

Approximately €1 billion worth of Burgess superyachts on show

Burgess is bringing a fleet of over 10 superyachts to Monaco. The owners of these yachts have turned to Burgess for the firm’s consistently successful sales and its reputation as one of the leading brokers for yachts of all sizes.

Phoenix 2

The larger yachts on show inside Port Hercule under the care of Burgess include the 90 metre Phoenix 2, 92.4 metre Tatoosh, which is fresh from a 2021 refit, and the 63 metre 11.11. The 55 metre Papa is a fine example of one of the many successful charter yachts that have stayed under the management of Burgess since her 2019 delivery.

During the Monaco Yacht Show, an interested buyer can see the likes of 91.5 metre Tranquility up close in either of the yacht’s two custom Hodgdon tenders, as well as the 82 metre Sarafsa – both of which will be at anchor. Delivered in 2008, the brokers at Burgess say Sarafsa offers a new owner the chance to avoid the current lengthy wait time for new build yachts and own a high calibre yacht built to Northern European standards with plenty of potential.

Escapade

A range of sizes

Currently, Burgess’ Monaco Yacht Show fleet will total a length of 1,082.8 metres and include vessels of all shapes and sizes, including the 37.5 metre sailing yacht Escapade. She currently belongs to experienced owners who before building their dream custom sailing yacht with Fitzroy Yachts, spent 12 years chartering.

Escapade's broker, Henry Craven-Smith, will be sharing stories of the yacht’s travels as well as information about her extraordinary quality and designs by Dubois Naval Architects and Design Unlimited. Despite Burgess’s reputation for selling some of the world’s largest yachts, the brand is also highly successful in the sub-50 metre range. In the past five years, more than 60 per cent of Burgess’ sales were for yachts measuring under 50 metres in length.

The Burgess team can be found on stand QH18

Burgess brokers from all over the world

The company’s success is attributed to its experienced team of brokers and experts spread across the globe – who not only have the ability to offer an owner a range of first-class services in all aspects of yachting, but have insider information that is beneficial to all prospective buyers and sellers.

A fine example of a yacht attending the Monaco Yacht Show that has benefitted from Burgess’ full range of services – including charter management, operational management, insurance and crew – is the 42.2 metre Emotion². After being her charter CA for many years, the Burgess team and her broker Jamie Small are well acquainted with the yacht and her market potential. Something else that Burgess brokers are urging owners to see during the show is how the one-and-only owner of the 60.4 metre Rock.It has passionately invested in her quality and condition to get her ready for her next owner.

During the show, a strong team of 102 Burgess staff are to be based at the Burgess stand (QH18) and will be on hand to speak to anyone interested in gaining an insight into the superyachts set to be on show.

Take the chance to drive an F1 car

Supercars and superyachts go hand in hand. Hence why Burgess is continuing its partnership with Bentley and is offering four cars to chauffeur clients during the Monaco Yacht Show. As an added extra, Burgess and Samsung are set to showcase two top Samsung products, as well as a fully-immersive driver simulator on the Burgess stand in the form of two 98” 4k screens. After pre-registering, guests can take the opportunity to drive with g-cueing technology which simulates the g-forces felt in real-life Formula 1 racing.
