Burgess celebrates new build record in 40m to 180m size range

Burgess New Construction has announced that it has supervised new build projects in 23 shipyards across three continents since its formation 16 years ago, to a total value of approximately USD $5.5 billion.

Originally founded as Burgess Technical Services to project manage the build of superyachts 40m+ on behalf of owners, Burgess New Construction now holds the record of having being involved in more new builds between 40m and 180m LOA than any other specialist. 

Included among projects completed by Burgess New Construction in its first decade are motor yachts AMEVI, Sunrays, Mayan Queen IV, Vava II, Saint Nicolas, Baton Rogue, Luna, Anneva, Seanna, Al Mirqab and Topaz. 

More recent projects include the 180m M/Y Azzam - the world’s largest and fastest superyacht built by Lurssen - for which it was appointed as the owner’s technical consultant and project manager to develop the brief and commission the build. This involved the technical specification and contractual negotiations, project management, providing on-site supervision, partaking in tank testing, plan approval and all main machinery testing, while also advising and interfacing with designers throughout the project. 

Another recent milestone project includes the multi-award winning 156m M/Y Dilbar – the world’s largest yacht by gross tonnage. Dilbar is the second Lurssen new build project over 100m that Burgess New Construction has managed for the same owner.

In a recent statement, Burgess New Construction said, “2017 will reinforce the continued prolific extent of the division’s impressive project portfolio, with several new deliveries. 

“Last month saw the successful delivery of the CRN build 74m Cloud 9, with a Winch Design interior for a repeat new build client. Burgess was appointed owner’s representative for the project and played a key role from the early stages, beginning with developing and agreeing the technical specification and technical aspects of the contract, and extending through the build to responsibility for technical review, inspection and acceptance, project management, on-site supervision and coordination of consultants. 

“Looking forward, Burgess New Construction has four projects under construction in Europe and due for delivery in 2018. Two of these are over 100m and the other two inhabit the 75m to 95m size range. 2019 will then see another vessel in excess of 100m delivered, as well as a 55m. Several projects between 50m and 120m are also under development.”
