We encountered the mega yacht Nero in Genoa, docked at the Magazzini del Cotone, at the Porto Antico of Genova. Two years after its accident, while it was undergoing refitting in the Ligurian capital, it has returned with its elegance and beauty, inspired by the Golden Age of the 1920s.

The Nero motor yacht is 90.1 metres long and was built in 2007 by Corsair Yachts; it just completed its latest refit this year. The interior and exterior of the yacht was designed by Neil Taylor and embodies all the elegance and opulence of the Twenties. Nero is surprisingly similar to the Corsair IV, transformed into a luxury ship after having served in the second World War.

The mega yacht can accommodate up to 12 passengers in 6 cabins, including a master suite, a VIP cabin, two full cabins, two double cabins, and a convertible cabin. It can also transport 20 crew members. Inside its décor is luxurious and contributes to creating an atmosphere inspired by the past, without giving up a comfortable cruising experience.

Built with a steel hull and superstructure, Nero is equipped with an ultramodern stabilisation system to reduce rolling. With a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 16 knots, it has an autonomy of  3,800 miles, thanks to its 176 litre fuel tanks; it is a perfect combination of performance and luxury.

The m/y Nero is a charter ship and can be hired. The cost? In the summer the cost starts from 497 thousand euros a week, plus expenses.

In September 2019, the ship, flying the Cayman islands flag, was in careening basin 1 of the Ente Bacini, when, because of a “technical error”, as reported by the fire brigade, it inclined steeply to the left side during the emptying of the basin, probably after the collapse of some of the wedges.
