by Rebecca Gentilini
NERO, which measures a total of 90 metres long and 12 metres wide, is a particularly delightful leisure yacht. It combines the high standards of a luxury modern and contemporary boat, equipped with all the latest technology, with the traditional style, charm and elegance of the golden era of yachting.
With a design inspired by the elegance and glamour of the 1920s, it was launched in 2007 by the Chinese yard Corsair Yachts and underwent an extensive refit in 2016. Its interiors were designed by Laura Pomponi, featuring a blend of contemporary design and classic style. The bow lounge has a typically maritime atmosphere, with oak dominating all the interior spaces, only interrupted by the silky blue of the soft furnishings.
This elegant superyacht is perfectly equipped to meet the needs of the most discerning charter clients. It can host 12 people in six double cabins, all with private bathrooms. Impeccable service is guaranteed by the twenty crew members from all over the world, who are able to cater to different cultures and sleep in separate quarters to ensure privacy and a truly luxurious charter experience.
The yacht has a whirlpool tub, gym, 5.7-metre swimming pool, zero speed stabilisers, indoor and outdoor film projection screens, and a beach set for barbecues. It also offers a variety of tenders and toys for having fun in the sea.
Generally speaking, the most popular activity among guests is finding a secluded beach. The crew can also accompany them on more challenging outings through the coral reef with snorkelling equipment. These are truly wonderful moments, which make you feel as if you are flying without being restricted to remaining above the water.
Thanks to two Caterpillar 2.333 HP engines, it has a cruising speed of 14 knots. Burgess offers it for charter in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Prices range from 490 to 525 thousand dollars per week.
