Burgess milestone in Asia
Burgess’ recent sale of the 52m Amels Lind marked the 20th transaction by the brokerage house’s Asia team since it was formed in 2015.
Burgess has announced the in-house sale of the 52m Amels Lind, with Mark Woodmansey, Head of Brokerage Asia, and Monaco-based Eleonora Pitasso representing the seller. The sale of the Amels 171 Limited Editions marked the 20th transaction by Burgess’ Asia team since it was formed under Singapore-based Jean-Marc Poullet in 2015.
In addition to Lind, Burgess has transacted four other yachts for Asian clients in 2021 – the 46m Heesen Book Ends, a confidential deal for a 70m-plus build, the 44m Feadship Moon Sand and the 66m Amels Ventum Maris.
Poullet, Burgess’ Chairman Asia, said: “Our Asia team’s 20th transaction is obviously a nice milestone, rewarding passion, team spirit, expertise and hard work to give our clients the best possible advice on the market and get them the best-possible deal, be they buyers or sellers.”
The 20 yachts have an average length of 51m, with the largest being the 85m Lurssen Areti purchased in 2019 in another in-house Burgess deal, with the Asia team representing the buyer. The 68m Amels Lady S (now Lady E) was one of the top-10 deals in 2018 and among three 50m-plus transactions that year by Woodmansey.
Woodmansey said. “While we have been very successful in the large yachts segment, we are equally excited to bring our clients great opportunities in the 30-50m segment including new build or very recent yachts which we source globally via Burgess’ networks and shipyard relationships.”
Burgess’ current CA listings of yachts for sale on behalf of Asia clients include the 92m Oceanco Tranquility, the 88m Illusion Plus by Pride Mega Yachts, the 60m Feadship Paraffin, the 43m ISA Agora III, the 30.4m Couach Hummingbird and the 34m Feadship Moon Sand Too, recently made available for viewings in Hong Kong.
Burgess’ Asia operation includes about 20 staff in five offices (Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Phuket and Mumbai) and a dedicated Asia desk in Monaco.
The Asia team of the global brokerage house is arranging viewings of the elegant, voluminous 34m Feadship in Hong Kong.
