Our Top Yacht from the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show

Last week was the largest edition of the Monaco Yacht Show yet, and the Boatbookings team examined some of the finest and largest yachts available for your yacht charter. Our highlight of the show was M/Y NERO, a stunning 90m Corsair Yacht completed in 2008.


Unlike any other modern motor yachts, NERO’s design is based on the glamour of the 1920s, so she has the appeal of a classic yacht but the luxurious amenities of the modern day. At anchor next to the other yachts at the show, her unusual design made NERO stand out for all the right reasons.


Captain Nick has been on board since the yacht was launched, and there is no doubting his pride to work on such a yacht. His knowledge of the concept and attention to detail in NERO’s design is amazing, and it is obvious that he and his crew (complete with a ship cat!) want all the guests to enjoy being on board just as much as they do.


NERO’s sprawling decks are not put to waste – almost every area of deck is put to use, whether for sunbathing, sitting in the Jacuzzi or swimming against the current of the pool on the bow. There is also a ‘snug’ on her sundeck, where you can enjoy the sunshine in an air-conditioned climate or a cosy evening meal.


The interior is also as fantastic as the exterior. With curved walls and glossy oak and ash woods, you would not necessarily believe you were on board a yacht. The 6 staterooms include an owner’s suite spread over two levels as well as an impressive VIP suite – all 6 lavish staterooms have en suite bathrooms which are stocked with Bulgari toiletries.


There is ample seating for dining both inside and out, as well as the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor cinema experience under the stars. Another feature of the yacht is the sweeping staircase that leads in to the library and is reminiscent of the famous staircase on board the Titanic. Another feature of NERO is the main salon, which was appears in the film Grace of Monaco, which highlights just how luxurious and glamorous NERO is.



NERO is available for charter on the French Riviera and Italian Riviera, as well as Sardinia and Corsica. If you are interested in chartering NERO or another luxury yacht, send a charter request to Boatbookings and we will find the perfect yacht to suit you.
