The 47.5 metre motor yacht Nerissa,listed for sale by David Westwood atThompson, Westwood & White, has been sold in collaboration with the sales team at Bilgin Yachts and with the buyer introduced by Derani Yachts in Thailand.
Built in steel and aluminium by Turkish yard Bilgin to a design by Unique Yacht Design, Nerissa was launched in August 2017. The interior and general arrangement was developed by H2 Yacht Design, who created a generous owner’s suite with a fold-out balcony. She has five cabins in total — including two VIP suites and two twin cabins — and can accommodate up to 12 guests. In addition, there are quarters for nine crewmembers.
A stylishly modern interior makes use of a copper colour scheme, complemented by a range of woods and precious metals, all enhanced by large windows that flood the interior spaces with natural light. The split-level main saloon offers ample seating, an entertainment centre and a separate formal dining table.
The skylounge is ideal for relaxation, with several seating options and a state-of-the-art entertainment centre featuring a large television screen. This lounge leads directly out to the covered aft upper deck with an al fresco dining space and a bar for relaxed cocktails at sundown.
Powered by twin 1,475hp MTU 12V2000 M72 diesel engines, she has a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum range in excess of 4,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 12 knots.
Nerissa was asking €19,600,000 and has now been renamed Starburst III.
