Burgess was built on a love of yachting. Founded in 1975 by Nigel Burgess, renowned sailor and worldwide single-handed ocean racer, he created a company with an obsessive eye for detail that put clients first every time.

From our original office in London in 1975 we now span the world, with branches catering to clients in major locations. Each office is led by an exceptional individual in keeping with the belief that quality is defined by the calibre of our team. Quite simply, we believe ours to be the best there is. Meet them and judge for yourself.

We’ve been perfecting our craft since 1975 and today we’re number one in every field of superyachting over 30m. The reason for that is the Burgess difference.

The company was established over three decades ago by Nigel Burgess, a renowned solo ocean racer with an obsessive eye for detail and a passion for the sea. Nigel was a pioneer. He had to innovate and think originally to surpass the competition and drive his company to the top of a market that he helped to create. Nigel succeeded because he always put the client first.

We have been honouring Nigel's philosophy ever since. Along with the urge to outperform and overdeliver, the trust and integrity that defined Nigel are embedded in the Burgess DNA and reach into every corner of our personalised client services. Spearheaded by Jonathan Beckett, Burgess takes pride in everything we do to realise our clients' dreams.

As a Burgess client, you always come first, whether that’s charter, brokerage, yacht building, management or finance. That’s the Burgess difference.
