In the age of the temporary and disposable, the creation of a superyacht is a long and crafted process, where aesthetics and personal taste meet the very edges of technical possibility. It’s a powerful combination, as the amazing vessels featured throughout this issue prove. As ever, these pages provide a showcase for fabulous yachts and wonderful destinations, from Monaco to the Maldives. Where else can you share an insider’s view of cruising in the South Pacific, from the captains of both Noble House and Hemisphere? Whet your appetite with a chef’s tale of fine cuisine aboard Twizzle? Enjoy a taste of Mediterranean high life, browse the latest gadgets or discover the ultimate on board entertainment? Beyond the sheer, obvious pleasure of superyacht ownership and charter, most of what Burgess does remains under the radar. Superyachting offers a unique level of privacy for those in the public eye, and we protect our reputation for discretion as fiercely as our clients’ confidence. So much of our work is inevitably out of the public domain. This magazine is therefore a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes, into the workings of one of the world’s busiest superyacht companies. Here, CEO Jonathan Beckett offers his personal perspective on the industry. The brokerage team put their heads together to tackle the realities of the current market, and we test the financial case for professional yacht management. We profile the work of leading designers Mick Leach and Mark Smith, while our technical services consultants explore the impact of exotic new materials in superyacht construction. The aim of Burgess Superyacht Living & Style is to inspire and inform. We are, and always will be a hands-on superyacht company, committed to quality and personal service. Our approach – so well captured by Tim Heywood in his free-flowing cover sketch – is one of vision and imagination; it is an approach illustrated comprehensively in this issue of the magazine.
