The Monaco Yacht Show (24 – 27 September) and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (30 October – 3 November) will soon be upon us, and Burgess has announced that it is gearing up to showcase an impressive line-up of superyachts across the two events 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 presenting over 10 per cent of the vessels on display, a line-up composed of over 1,000 metres (nearly 3,300 feet) of superyachts 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.
Cakewalk is one of the stand-out yachts in this very specialised sector of the large yacht market and will attract considerable attention at the Monaco Yacht Show. At an impressive 85.6m in length, and 2,998GT, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a powerful yacht of vast proportions that is ready for immediate cruising. Cakewalk has it all: a private owner’s deck, expansive exterior decks, a guest elevator connecting all levels and a climate-controlled full beam tender garage. This sensational yacht should not be missed.
Built by Nobiskrug in Germany, the award-winning 68m Sycara V was delivered in 2010 to a highly experienced owner. Designed with minimum partitions in the guest entertaining areas to enhance her interior volume, she has extensive accommodation for 20 guests in eight flexible cabins.
With six decks of superlative style and unprecedented space, Baton Rouge is magnificent in every respect. Boasting top design credentials and a quality Dutch build, she has exceptional volume for a 62m yacht. The sweep and rake of Tim Heywood’s exterior styling has created vast living areas, both inside and on deck, while bespoke details throughout contribute to a truly unique superyacht experience.
One of the world’s most visionary sailing yachts, Twizzle has been turning heads since she was delivered by the revered Royal Huisman Shipyard in 2010. This sophisticated, multi-award-winner combines advanced technology with a level of comfort rarely found on a sailing yacht. Her impressive design attributes include exterior/interior styling by acclaimed designers Redman Whiteley Dixon and naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects.
Illusion is arguably the best value Feadship on the market today. A substantial refit in 2010 included a 5m stern extension, a complete overhaul of the engine room and an upgrade to the deck and watersports equipment. As part of the refit, Bannenberg & Rowell masterminded her modern art themed interior which provides an attractive contrast to the classical lines of her de Voogt exterior, lending significant commercial appeal.
The pedigree Faribana V combines the enduring quality of a Dutch-built yacht with sophisticated, timeless Andrew Winch design. Beautifully maintained, this yacht completed her five year Lloyd’s survey in 2013 and was fully repainted in 2012. With impressive volume, beautiful, classical entertaining areas and an elevator that serves all decks, Faribana V is well-priced and offers exceptional value for a yacht of her size and quality.
Zenobia combines the stunning exterior lines of Donald Starkey, the superior build quality of Abeking & Rasmussen, and the meticulous design and detailing of Alberto Pinto.

Sleek, with navy and white livery, the 53m Blue Scorpion was built in 2006 by Baglietto and offers the advantage of very low levels of usage. This modern yacht features a subtle, minimalist interior with Asian influences, Chinese artwork, and plenty of light and space.
