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. Today, Burgess is a leading authority in the sale and purchase, new construction, charter and operational management of the world’s finest yachts over 30 metres.
From their original office in London in 1975, Burgess now spans the globe, with branches catering to clients in 14 major locations. The company has been involved with some of the most significant yachts ever built and Chief Executive Jonathan Beckett has led Burgess to its position as the world’s number one full-service superyacht company. In recognition of this, Burgess became the first yacht brokerage firm ever to receive the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2001.
