Burgess sells 90m superyacht Nero with bluewater
by Malcolm MacLean
This represents 137 sales so far this year and is the largest yacht sold in 2014.
Built in China, Nero was delivered in 2008 with her owner responsible for the exterior styling and interior design. He took as his inspiration the famous ‘Corsair’ series of superyachts owned in the early part of the last century by financier JP Morgan and the result is a modern classic.
Built to Lloyd’s class and MCA compliant, Nero accommodates 12 guests in a master, VIP, two doubles and two twin cabins and has a range in excess of 5,200 nautical miles at 12 knots.
In 2012 she completed a comprehensive winter maintenance period where upgrades included the reconfiguration of the aft suite to a full sixth stateroom, replacement of carpets in the guest areas, complete engine room repaint and further routine maintenance throughout.
Nero was the winner of the Best Motor Yacht over 75 metres at the 2009 ShowBoats International Design Awards.
Nero was jointly listed for sale with Merle Wood, asking €39,950,000.
