Yacht...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. Her dramatic black steel hull reflects the gently lapping waves like a basalt mirror white her light superstructure and large pool offer pleasing contrasts.
