With the dawning of boat show season upon us, Burgess has announced the sale of the 47m ketch sailing yacht Aquarius, a 1990 Perini Navi build, its fleet for the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival and the relocation of its London office to Regent Street.

Aquarius has been sold with Henry Craven-Smith of Burgess representing the seller and Dirk Johnson of Perini Navi USA introducing the buyer. At the time of the sale, she was on the market for $9.75 million.

The ketch sailing yacht was designed by the Italian yard’s in-house design team and constructed with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure at its facility in Viareggio, in 1990.

London-based Colefax & Fowler is responsible for the nautical-themed interior, which apportions guest accommodation for 10 over a cabin configuration of two doubles and two twins with additional Pullman berths.

Burgess has also announced its five-yacht sales fleet for the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival. This includes a 49.9m Mangusta 165, built by Overmarine in 2007 for out-and-out performance; she has a top speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 26 knots. She is for sale at €13.95 million and is also for charter with Burgess for €150,000 per week.

Va Bene will also be in attendance at the show. The 47.2m motoryacht was built by Kees Cornelissen in 1992 and is for sale with Burgess at €13.67 million and for charter at €140,000 per week. She underwent an extensive refit at Pendennis in 2007 and had an interior refresh in 2015, leaving her in pristine condition for re-sale.

Showcasing a fine collaborative effort by European Designers, Cor D. Rover and Luca Dini, the 41m motoryacht Nameless, built by Mondomarine in 2013, is available for sale at €12.5 million and for charter at €133,000 per week.


The 36.6m motoryacht Crystal, built by Moonen in 2015, is for sale at €14.95 million. Despite being delivered, her current owners have never sailed her, making her a rare proposition on the re-sale market.


The 37m motoryacht Khaleesi is fresh from an extensive 2016 refit, including an engine overhaul, a repaint and an interior refresh. The 1996 Perini Navi build is on the market for €4.95 million.


In order to accommodate its continual growth, Burgess has completed the relocation of its London office from Pall Mall to nearby Regent Street and, as of today (15 August), shall be contactable at its new office address.
