More from Alev Karagulle as she writes to say Burgess has appointed Sonia Palfrey to its Charter Management team. Joining from Camper & Nicholsons, where she was Director of Charter Management for 9 years, Sonia has more than 30 years of experience in the global superyacht industry.

Reporting to the Director of Charter Management Neil Moore, Sonia joins the Burgess Charter Management team in Monaco at a time of evolving expansion. The company now has over 80 superyachts under charter management, an increase of 60 per cent over the past three years.

Jonathan Beckett, Burgess CEO, says: ‘Our already extensive charter fleet is growing fast and includes some of the most prestigious superyachts in the world. Each owner expects and deserves a bespoke charter management service that is specific to their brief, and to their yacht. Attracting professionals of Sonia’s calibre, discretion and international experience is paramount to maintaining the high standards of our charter operations. We are delighted to have Sonia on board with us at such an exciting time in our 35 year history.’
