ALFA NERO Oceanco | From EUR€ 812,000 /wk

Motor yacht ALFA NERO is a large Oceanco steel and aluminium superyacht being 82m (269') in length and 14.20m (46' 7") at her widest point. She was built by Oceanco Yachts (who undertook her naval architecture) and designed by Nuvolari & Lenard with Alberto Pinto collaborating on the interior. She has luxurious accommodation for 12 charter guests in 6 cabins.

NOTABLE FEATURES: ~Infinity pool with glass waterfall sliding convertible to helipad - can be raised for less depth for children ~Beauty salon ~Hairdressing salon ~Beach club ~Vast master suite with private deck ~Spa pool ~Night club ~Gym

An icon in yachting, she is one of the truly magnificent luxury yachts created and available for charter. Her outstanding design and construction methods are very innovative and advanced to the extent that she evolved the way many superyacht designers and builders approached luxury yacht creation. The exterior design of the yacht presented a step forward in large yacht design with many award and accolades following her launch.

It was almost as if those responsible for ALFA NERO – the yacht designers, Oceanco and the yacht owner - set aside established luxury motor yacht design concepts and instead began afresh. The result is a balanced and elegant mega yacht which is extremely easy on the eye without compromise to the availability of every conceivable amenity.

Inside, she boasts three separate dining areas, a dance room, a gym as well as pantries on each three guest decks. A lift services and connects all decks. She has pop art inspired interiors with a nautical theme, with details such as side tables resembling stag-horn coral and seashell images in the guest hallway. The elevator shaft is in glass and is wrapped around by an intricate staircase. ALFA NERO is definitely elegant and luxurious. She has a Kaleidescape audio-visual system and a saloon Cinema.

Her dramatic black steel hull reflects the gently lapping waves like a basalt mirror white her light superstructure and large pool offer pleasing contrasts. ALFA NERO is a very large high volume yacht, yet her lines are sleek and graceful. Her roomy aft structure open and frees any bulk in her roomy upper superstructure.

ALFA NERO’s aft deck is perhaps her most idiosyncratic and famous feature. Here the unusually large swimming pool, complete with glass waterfall siding, converts to a heli pad. This is where form and function are harmoniously married. A very innovative aspect to the yacht the area includes settees which flank a skylight window.

Wenge wood panels surround both sky lounge and dining room. Scalloped panels are lacquered in white creating a mother-of-pearl feel, a textured effect reminiscent of abstracted golf balls.

As with many well designed large private yachts, the upper deck lends itself exclusively to the yacht owner's residence. This area is spacious and beautiful and is appropriately fit for a Roman Emperor, which the yacht is named after.

The Dutch shipbuilder Oceanco and Italian designer Dan Lenard have won immense admiration for this yacht. Alfa Nero has garnered awards in Europe, the US and even Asia for a styling.

ALFA NERO Specifications

In fact, since her launch in 2007, Alfa Nero has already won more than half a dozen prestigious awards. Some of her awards include: the “Best Full Displacement Motoryachts over 75m” award with ShowBoats International, the “Most Innovative Exterior Yacht Design of the Year” award with Asia Pacific Boating, the Yachts International Magazine Award for “Most Innovative Yacht, 2007”, two awards with Boat International for “Best Exterior Design” and “Best Interior Styling”, and received her sixth award at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in the “2007 Best Power Design over 65 meters” category. These awards add to the many other awards won by the OceAnco Yacht over recent years.

Yacht ALFA NERO is available for selected luxury yacht charters so contact us for a reservation or more info.

Yacht Charter Accommodation

Superyacht ALFA NERO has luxurius accommodaion for 12 charter guests in 6 sumptuous cabins. The master stateroom is indulgent with it's own private deck, two offices and private veranda. There are two double VIP suites and one double guest suite as well as two twin guest cabins.

ALFA NERO Enquiry

"When required, the main-deck pool morphs into a helipad. Attention was given to the design of the heli-platform under the weight of a helicopter. By moving the platform up and down using spindles instead of levers or hydraulic cylinders, there is less chance of the platform accidentally lowering due to the weight." - Yacht Build Project Manager Jeroen Mulder

ALFA NERO yacht interior

Alberto Pinto Design Studio worked on the interior of the ALFA NERO yacht. Twelve guests can be accommodated in six beautiful cabins, and a crew of 26 finds space below deck. The massive master suite even has a private terrace and spa pool.

The yacht has an onboard hair and beauty salon, a spa, a dance floor, and a gym. Her interior design is heavily influenced by pop art, which sets her apart from other charter yachts.

Antigua and Barbuda to auction off $81m yacht ‘owned by Russian oligarch’

Andrey Guryev, who has been put under UK government sanctions, claims he is not owner of Alfa Nero

An $81m (£67m) superyacht said to be owned by the sanctioned Russian oligarch Andrey Guryev is to be auctioned off by the government of Antigua and Barbuda , which claims the vessel has been abandoned in the Caribbean since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

The government of Antigua and Barbuda on Monday warned the owner of the Alfa Nero superyacht that they had 10 days to claim the vessel or it would be sold to the highest bidder.

The information minister, Melford Nicholas, said Alfa Nero had been abandoned in Falmouth harbour in Antigua since February 2022 and the government was “trying to prevent a future hazard since the luxury vessel is not being maintained by its owner”.

In a statement the office of the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda said: “A notice to the newspapers and other media will be published for a period of 10 days, notifying the sale of the Alfa Nero vessel in order to satisfy the requirements under the law for a forced sale. If the owner fails to claim the vessel within that time period, the government of Antigua and Barbuda will sell it to the highest bidder.”

Guryev, 62, who made a $10bn fortune from the Russian fertiliser company PhosAgro, is the owner of Alfa Nero according to the US government, which imposed sanctions on him last year. The US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said it had “identified Alfa Nero, a Cayman islands flagged yacht that AG Guryev reportedly bought for $120m in 2014, as blocked property of AG Guryev”.

The yacht, which features a 12-metre infinity pool, a Jacuzzi, a spa, a beauty room and a helipad, has been used by Guryev’s family, including his son (also Andrey) and his son’s wife, Valeria, who studied at the London College of Fashion and once reportedly stated on Instagram that she was “too pretty for work”. Like many yachts, it is owned via an opaque offshore structure, and Guryev has denied being the owner.

Guryev, who was subjected to UK government sanctions in April 2022 , is also, according to the OFAC, the owner of London’s largest private residence: the 25-bedroom £50m Highgate mansion Witanhurst.

‘Live in the mess that Putin has created’: a tour of Russian oligarch-linked properties in London

The property is officially owned via Boradge Ltd, a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands. Guryev’s London-based lawyers have said “Mr Guryev does not own Witanhurst”, without providing further details. Guryev’s spokesperson has previously told the New Yorker that he was a beneficiary of a trust owning the property but not the legal owner.

Last year Gibraltar auctioned off the £65m superyacht Axioma owned by the sanctioned steel billionaire Dmitry Pumpyansky. The sale of Axioma attracted controversy because it is being sold not for the benefit of the Ukrainian people but for a US investment bank, JP Morgan, which claims Pumpyansky owes it more than €20.5m (£17m).

Pumpyansky was until March of 2022 the owner and chairman of the steel pipe manufacturer OAO TMK, a supplier to the Russian state-owned energy company Gazprom. The UK said the billionaire, who it said had built up an estimated £1.84bn fortune, was one of the oligarchs “closest to Putin” .

Take a closer look at Russian oligarch's $700 million superyacht that is one of the largest in the world

  • Roman Abramovich had seemingly scrambled to avoid sanctions from the UK by moving his superyachts.
  • One of those is The Eclipse, which cost $700 million to build and was once the biggest in the world.
  • That yacht was once in New York City and we took some photos.

Insider Today

Like other Russian oligarchs, Roman Abramovich had seemingly scrambled to avoid sanctions and that included quickly moving his superyachts to more friendly waters.

Many of the 55-year-old billionaire's assets — such as the Chelsea Football Club and several homes — have been sold or frozen since Russia launched an unprovoked war on Ukraine, Bloomberg reported . 

While Abramovich couldn't move the Premier League football club Chelsea FC and sold the $3 billion club , his yachts are another matter. 

Abramovich's 553-foot-long flagship is The Eclipse, estimated to have cost $700 million when built. After sanctions were initially dropped by the UK against Abramovich, his second "smaller" $600 million superyacht, Solaris, left Barcelona, Spain, and moved to friendlier waters in Turkey.

Solaris was joined in Turkey by The Eclipse, which arrived from the Caribbean .

While the superyacht Eclipse was photographed in Turkish waters in early August , it was once docked at Manhattan's Pier 90, and Robert Johnson was able to get some pictures. Take a tour of the superyacht below. 

Robert Johnson contributed to this post.

Just south of this public parking lot on the roof of the Pier 90 terminal in New York City sat Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's flagship yacht, the "Eclipse."

536-feet long and styled after military vessels.

The 2010 Eclipse cost $700 million and was the world's largest yacht when built.

The vessel has amenities to rival any ship on the sea — like its own mini submersible, perhaps similar to this— able to dive down 150-feet.

The Eclipse has two helipads.

Bulletproof glass and armor plates wrap the length of Roman's master suite and the bridge.

And a German-built missile defense system.

The ship's also supposed to have a laser defense against paparazzi trying to photograph the yacht's guests, but saw no evidence of the device when we were there.

The Eclipse has three launch boats.

That looked to be stocked with medical supplies and a variety of handheld radios.

From the cruise ship parking lot it felt like we were almost on the Eclipse itself.

But with little chance we'd be invited aboard through the ship's door here ...

... We hoped to find one of the 70 crew members required to sail the Eclipse and see if they'd tell us what ship life was like.

But we found no one interested in talking.

But we certainly didn't feel like paparazzi, or that we'd be lasered, when we were in the parking lot tourists use when they arrive to board their cruise.

From up here, the ship was simply stunning and the amount of work required to keep her that way apparent.

alfa nero superyacht

The Yacht Report says owning a superyacht costs about 20% of the ship's initial value every year.

But experts believe that Roman probably pays $75 million a year to run the private cruise ship with 24-guest suites.

Looking at the layout of the ship gets us talking about the two swimming pools inside, the disco, cinema, hair salon, and restaurant.

The billionaire's guests would use this door to enter any fore part of the deck.

Perhaps noting where the life rings were as they made their way about the ship.

At 13,000 gross tons, the Eclipse was, at the time, the largest vessel to use a special stabilization system to keep it calm in rough waters while anchored or moving slowly through the sea.

alfa nero superyacht

Roman faced a $150,000 tab for parking the Eclipse in New York City while possibly visiting his daughter and her new baby — about $2,000 a day.

alfa nero superyacht

A large yacht like the Eclipse can hold over 100,000 gallons of fuel.

alfa nero superyacht

Depending on the current price of fuel, a five-hour cruise each way could cost about $30,000.

alfa nero superyacht

None of those numbers are likely to concern Roman Abramovich, however, who has an estimated net worth of nearly $8 billion.
