World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #30: Alfa Nero
#30: ALFA NERO—269'0"
When Alfa Nero made her boat-show debut at last year's Monaco Yacht Show, even the most jaded attendees found their jaws dropping. From the aft-deck pool made all the more impressive due to a see-through section in the transom to the fact that the pool can transform into the helipad when the water is drained and the floor raised up, the yacht boasts a few technical marvels. Her black hull and abundance of open spaces accentuate her bold profile, while inside the owner (who also owns Oceanco) selected exotic materials like goatskin, ebony, and numerous marbles for the walls and floors of guest areas. Of course, he treated himself quite well, too: The upper deck is all his, complete with private deck area.
