The main distinction between a luxury yacht and a superyacht is of course, the price tag. True to form, the superyacht Alfa Nero has hit the market at a staggering $190 million.
This is a 269-foot Oceanco superyacht, and is listed by Edminston & Co. The elegance begins with the fact that this luxury vessel was named for Roman emperor Nero. She was ranked #43 in Boat International’s list of the world’s 100 largest yachts in February of 2009, and is Lloyds classed and MCA compliant. Yes, it would certainly seem this is a superyacht of stature!
Designer Nuvolari & Lenard ensured that all luxe amenities and pleasures were present on Alfa Nero. There is over 4,000 square feet of living space onboard, accommodating 12 guests comfortably via a master, 2 VIPs and 3 doubles in addition to 14 double cabins for 26 crewmembers. Luxury hardly describes this yacht!
Do not let the massive capacity and size fool you, she has a range of 6,630 miles and a cruising speed of around 23 miles per hour, I am impressed….slightly…(note sarcasm).
The lavish interior was styled in-house by Nuvolari-Lenard and Alberto Pinto, offering a sensory effect of the sea with furniture that resembles staghorn coral. At least no one will be barking at you not to touch the coral, like on scuba excursions!
The master suite boasts a bathroom with a pampering steam shower and hot tub, a dressing area, an office and a private patio with an additional hot tub. Sigh.
What stands out about the Alfa Nero is its flexibility, namely the swimming pool on the main aft deck. Not only is it among the most massive on a superyacht, but also the pool area can be converted via hydraulics into an entertaining space, a dance floor, or a helipad. Yes please. But do they have room onboard for my Ferrari F430 Spider? That could be a dealbreaker…
Want to snag a session with the Alfa Nero? It is rumored that it will be anchored during the Monaco Yacht Show. Bring your wallet, not sure if they take American Express.
