M/Y Alpha Nero
ALFA NERO was launched to universal acclaim in 2007. She sailed off with every important award including Boat International's interior and exterior yacht of the year, Showboats' best yacht over 75 metres and Yachts International's most innovative yacht over 40 metres. In simple terms she was the finest new yacht in the world.
The upper deck is given over to the owner's residence. The aft deck includes settees that flank a skylight. The sky-lounge and dining room are surrounded with wenge panels and what has come to be known as the "golf ball" wall. Scalloped panels are covered in white lacquer with a mother-of-pearl look, giving the walls a textured effect reminiscent of abstract, flattened golf balls. The wall covering enlarges the room's appearance and sets the mood to that of a European nightclub even in the light of day. The swimming pool on the main deck converts to a heli pad which is one of the most innovative things seen on any yacht in the past.
