Our biggest collaboration is at the Monaco Yacht Show, where Burgess clients and VIPs enjoy the luxury of being conveyed by Rolls-Royce Ghost to the superyachts on display from their airport, helipad or hotel. For the past two years, we have also had the pleasure of displaying the breathtaking – and crowd pulling - Phantom Drophead Coupé on the quayside, in front of the Burgess tent. During the show last year, the Rolls-Royce team also participated in a client cocktail party aboard two brand new Burgess superyachts. synergy between us is evident at the Fort Across the Atlantic, the warmth of the Lauderdale International Boat Show, where our clients enjoy transfers in a Rolls-Royce Ghost. One of the show’s highlights in 2012 was the cocktail party we hosted together aboard the spectacular 85.6 metre (281ft) Cakewalk. All year round, we exchange invitations to luxury events in the US, such as the Oceana SeaChange Summer Party, the fabulous Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach and the Boys & Girls Clubs Yacht Rendezvous. Most excitingly for Burgess clients a who special test-drive programme. These take place want to get behind the wheel, Rolls-Royce offers over a few days in various locations and offer a relaxed way for our clients to experience what makes these iconic cars so special. We look forward to continuing this happy alliance with Rolls-Royce through 2013 and beyond. S K Y F A L L BURGESS PROVIDES JAMES BOND’S SKYFALL YACHT Burgess charter yachts have starred in many movies over the years, but few as glamorous as the latest James Bond blockbuster Skyfall. As superyacht broker to movie stars, rock icons, sports legends and royalty, Burgess was called upon to source a yacht to feature in the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. The 56 metre (183ft) luxury sailing yacht Regina fits the bill perfectly for scenes filmed in her home territory of Southern Turkey, where she was built in 2010. An elegant and clearly photogenic schooner, with luxurious accommodation for 12 guests in 6 cabins and an accommodating crew of 7, she provides the ideal backdrop for scenes with Daniel Craig as 007 and Bond girl Sévérine, played by Bérénice Marlohe. Why not set sail along the Turkish Coast next summer aboard a superyacht of your own?
