This year, the MYBA Charter Show will return for its 31st edition from 30th April to 3rd May, during which time showgoers will have the opportunity to meet captains and crew and go on tours of the yachts in attendance. With the Barcelona-based event around the corner, we take a look at the 10 largest yachts that will be on display this year.
1. Nero (90.1m)
Ranking at the top of the list is the timeless 90.1-metre motor yacht Nero built by Corsair in 2007. Inspired by the 1890s superyacht Corsair, which was commissioned by the American financier, banker and art collector JP Morgan, Nero’s classic lines and designs by Neil Taylor emphasise her 1800s heritage without detracting from her modern onboard features, which include a swimming pool, side-boarding platform and accommodation for 12 guests. Spanning a volume of 1,384 GT across three decks, Nero reaches a top speed of 17 knots and has a range of 4,559 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13.5 knots.
