Nero (Ex-Project Corsair)
LENGTH (including bowsprit): 295ft. 6in. (90.1m)
BUILDER: Corsair Yachts
SHIPYARD: Yantai Raffles, China
Endowed with the sophisticated amenities of the most modern yacht and the romantic appeal of nostalgic classic steamships, Nero makes references to the designs of the 1930s, but she isn’t a literal interpretation of any one historic vessel. Formerly identified by its project name Corsair, the name of a series of legendary vessels owned by the Morgan banking empire in the 1900s, Nero was built at Yantai Raffles in China for an inspired and hands-on British owner. After her launch the yacht boarded a transport vessel bound to Turkey, and Burgess listed the yacht in its summer charter brochure. Accommodating 12 guests in unusually large staterooms, plus two staff members and 20 crewmembers, the yacht has features not found on JP Morgan’s yacht. These include Wi-Fi, a movie theater with digital surround sound and an outdoor cinema. Nero also features a swimming pool and beach platform with direct ocean access. Designed by IMT Marine Consultants, the yacht has a steel hull and superstructure. Two 2,333-hp MAK Caterpillar diesel engines allow her to reach a top speed of 16 knots. The yacht carries three custom tenders, including a 31-foot vintage-style cabin cruiser. In addition to being available for charter, Nero is also currently for sale through Burgess.
