Nearing the end of 2022, international superyacht broker Burgess has announced an extremely healthy sales year across all departments. The brokerage saw a domino effect as a result of the pandemic, with more customers looking to travel in the summer, which boosted demand for charters.
“We have had another great year in all departments. With over $2 billion in brokerage revenue, an increase of about 50% in charter business compared to pre-pandemic levels, and a 20% increase in newbuilds year-over-year, I am very pleased with the unstoppable efforts of our team,” said CEO Jonathan Beckett.
Burgess said 2022’s high profit margins are due to the company’s culture. Burgess attributes 2022’s $2 billion in revenue to a culture of information sharing and guidance from senior members of the brokerage team.
“Our service is second to none, and we just get the job done, whether we’re selling a 30-meter yacht or a 100-meter yacht – we provide the same service to our clients. At the end of the day, we’re in the relationship business, and that’s where we shine,” says Richard Lambert, Head of Sales.
