Burgess is gearing up to showcase a line-up of superyachts at the Monaco Yacht Show, September 24-27, and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 30 to November 3, with a combined value of over US$1 billion.

Considered by many as the ultimate event to view the latest and greatest superyachts in the world, the Monaco Yacht Show promises to provide a wealth of options for those on the lookout for their next yacht purchase or charter. Burgess will be leading the way in terms of choice, presenting over 10 per cent of the vessels on display, the most of any brokerage company, and also offering access to every yacht at the show.

The Burgess line-up will be composed of over 1,000 metres (nearly 3,300 feet) of superyachts at the Monaco Yacht Show itself, with an average vessel length of over 53 metres, including 11 vessels in Port Hercule and nearly 20 at anchor, for which there will be a private tender service provided by Wahoo. Additionally, by virtue of a long-term partnership with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, VIP guests of Burgess will be provided with Rolls-Royce courtesy cars to conveniently transport them to and from the show in complete comfort.

Yachts for sale at the Monaco Yacht Show will include the sumptuous and voluminous Tim Heywood-designed Cakewalk; the award-winning Royal Huisman ketch Twizzle; the striking Baton Rouge built by Icon Yachts; and a host of motor and sailing yachts ranging in length from 40 metres to over 85 metres.

Also presented by their respective shipyards in Monaco will be two yachts from the Burgess charter fleet; the brand new 73m Grace E by Picchiotti/Perini Navi and the magnificent 66m Invictus by Delta Marine, with inspections offered by the team of Burgess charter brokers on hand at the show.

As the largest in-the-water display of yachts in the world, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show offers visitors an opportunity to see the most impressive selection of superyachts in US waters. Burgess will be presenting a collection of vessels valued at close to a quarter of a billion dollars at the show, from the adventurous 39.6m Mea Culpa offered for sale, to the beautifully refitted 56.4m My Seanna offered for charter. The full list will be announced next month.
