The Burgess New Construction Division Rides A Wave Of Yachting Brilliance
In January 2017, the 242.8’ (74m), 2,218-gross ton, highvolume superyacht Cloud 9 was unveiled at an Italian shipyard. Among the numerous onlookers who gathered to celebrate, none were more proud than the team from the Burgess New Construction division.
Overseeing the infinite details of the construction of a superyacht like Cloud 9 to the owner’s specifications required the expertise of this team of Burgess project managers, naval architects, and marine and electrical engineers. With 17 years of experience and an impressive portfolio of record-breaking yachts under its belt, Burgess worked in close collaboration with the builder, CRN, and interior designer Winch Design.
The team’s achievements were showcased last year in Port Hercules, where more than 125 superyachts were displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show — and where, for the second year in a row, a Burgess yacht, the 361’ (110m) Jubilee, was the standout as the largest yacht. In fact, Jubilee is the largest yacht ever to have been exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show. Burgess New Construction provided technical consultancy and project management throughout the entire build process for Jubilee, and today the yacht is offered for sale by Burgess as the exclusive Worldwide Central Agents.
The Burgess New Construction team has played a critical role in the creation of many of the world’s most highly recognized superyachts, including the extraordinary Lürssen-built Topaz (483.1’/147.3m); the highly acclaimed Azzam (590.6’/180m), the world’s largest and fastest superyacht also built by Lürssen and delivered in 2013; and the multiple award–winning 511.8’ (156m) Dilbar, the world’s largest yacht by gross tonnage that was delivered in 2016. Dilbar is the second Lürssen new-build project exceeding 328’ (100m) that Burgess New Construction has managed for the same owner.
These are just a few examples of Burgess’s full-circle capabilities, which have earned the company worldwide dominance in the superyacht field. Burgess further distinguishes itself among the competition by: Providing operational management for more than 100 of the world’s largest yachts, two-thirds of which are over 500 gross tons and boast a roster of 1,800 crew members; Dominating the market in 164’+ (50m+) yachts in sales, charter, new construction and operational management;
