Burgess at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show

ROCK.IT, managed by BurgessWith the Monaco Yacht Show now in the rear view, all eyes are looking across the Atlantic at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Marking the winter superyacht season’s inaugural kick-off, this year’s show draws together the most prestigious superyachts in the Americas. Located steps away from the sunny beaches of South Florida, Burgess will again be present on the Bahia Mar Face Dock, where our professional and experienced brokers will be on hand to offer advice and to fast track client yacht inspections.

The following Burgess Central Agency yachts will be on display this year:

ROCK.IT
With a sleek and sporty profile, ROCK.IT (pictured right) fuses the indisputable Feadship pedigree with the design flair of Sinot resulting in a yacht with impeccable credentials in all departments. High gloss mahogany panelling is the dominant theme throughout the relaxing but elegant interior which boasts high deck heads and large windows affording plenty of natural light. Unique features such as the backlit curved onyx bar in the main saloon and several pieces of custom furniture by Frank Pollaro are notable design highlights. Pale sycamore panelling with mahogany accents in the bright and spacious sky lounge creates a different mood for informal gatherings. The stunning full beam master suite on the main deck provides his and hers marble bathrooms and four guest cabins composed of two VIP suites, a double and a twin with pullman are located on the lower deck.
