Burger Yachts' Thom Conboy On The American Revival

By Ben Roberts

Thom Conboy is taking Burger Yacht Sales to new heights as the American re-emergence takes control of 2014 and the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show approaches.

“I think the American market [and the] American buyer is very strong right now. Contributed to a lot of growth and a lot of people in Miami which in opinion is the centre of pop culture … the Bahamas is exploding with infrastructure and developments, with resorts, marinas that are able to offer a little bit more than what has been there in previous [years].”

Recently gaining central agency over Arianna, the beautiful 50m Delta-built motor yacht, Burger Yacht Sales are proud of the new listing as they prepare to showcase her at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

“She is actually one of the largest 50 metres on the market at about 840 GT, we will have her at the Hilton Dock alongside a 147’ Intermarine, a 145’ Heesen, a 150’ Burger and over at the new Pier 66 Marina we’ll have 5 more boats.”

With the Monaco Yacht Show now over for another year, the industry is now looking to the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show to continue the market activity experienced over what can only be described as a successful 2014.
