Burgess Yachts, the international superyacht services provider and always a major exhibitor at the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), is this year exhibiting the largest yacht at the event – the 90m (296ft) three-masted schooner Athena.
Athena, which is the fourth largest sailing yacht in the world, will be the biggest in Burgess’s 10 yacht line-up for the 26th edition of MYS. She will be berthed at the Quai de l’Hirondelle by the Burgess stand at QH17.
In a statement, Burgess comments: “Several yachts have motivated sellers prepared to accept a realistic price and some serious inspections are anticipated in Monaco after what has proved to be quite an upbeat summer. To streamline the show experience, a full hospitality area for Burgess clients will be on offer, while a fleet of private tenders and Rolls-Royces will be on standby to speed clients around the show and onto the yachts.”
Athena, which was built by Royal Huisman in 2004, went through a comprehensive refit in 2011 and her 10-year survey in 2014. Apart from her, the Burgess line-up will include:
Sarastar: Currently in the final stages of completion by Italian shipyard Mondomarine, the 60m (197ft) Sarastar is an all-aluminium semi-displacement vessel with delivery scheduled for autumn 2016. Boasting equally sportive and elegant lines, she was designed by Italian designer Luca Dini, who is also responsible for her innovative contemporary interior, which provides accommodation for 12 guests in 6 cabins. Price on application.
Capri: A Lurssen product dating from 2003, the 58.6m (192.1ft) Capri offers a large volume for a yacht of her size at 1,226 gross tonnes. She was designed by Glade Johnson and her asking price is €27.95m or available for charter at €4260,000 per week.
Sequel P: A project managed by Burgess Technical Services during construction, the 54.7m (179.5ft) Sequel P has been represented for charter by Burgess since her delivery in 2009. She will be exhibited for the first time sale at an asking price of $25.95m or for charter at $296,000 per week.
Kisses: This 53.4m (175.2ft) custom-built Feadship has been meticulously maintained since new by one owner. She was refitted in 2014 and boasts an elegant minimalist Art Déco interior inspired by the late designer and ironsmith Edgar Brandt. She is for sale with an asking price of $24.9m.
Ludynosa G: A sleek Dubois-designed aluminium sloop, the Ludynosa G offers impressive sailing credentials and a beautiful Redman Whiteley Dixon interior. She offers high performance as a product of the Fitzroy Yachts yard in New Zealand. She is on offer with an asking price of €8.25m.
