"Love for the sea, measureless passion for Italian style and the desire to create a boat as if it was a work of art." That's the inspiration for designers Alessio Battistini and Davide Bernardini of ideaeITALIA to create the Nerea NY24, the coolest new day-cruiser yacht in the business.
The 24-foot NY24 will be built in the Nerea Yacht facilities near Fano, a region boasting one of the most respected yachting industries in the world, with "highly specialized craftsmen and unmatched know-how."
However the Nerea facility is less boatyard than "a nautical laboratory where every new craft is made-to-measure," just like the custom suits Italy is well known for.
Highly personalized, each vessel is tailor made to suit the owner's requirements. It "blends refinement, versatility, harmony of shapes, colors, richness of materials and technology," in a "synthesis that offers unrivaled exclusivity."
The planked teak-lined craft is powered by a single 300 hp Volvo Penta Duoprop engine capable of boosting it to an impressive 32 knots. And a unique three-tiered stern area provides full access to the water while offering protection at the rear in rough seas, Robb Report points out.
The heart of the boat is the living area in the central cockpit, with a fine convertible dining area which turns into a large sun pad as well as two drawer refrigerators, a concealed sink, and a stove.
Below deck there's a cabin flooded with natural light featuring a large sofa convertible to a double bed and a bathroom (head). And helping you make the most of it all is a top-drawer audio video system.
Finally the boat, which can be made in any color you desire, is finished with a material called Oltremateria which is water-based, frost-proof, free of cement and epoxy resins, and is even recyclable, Uncrate notes.
Look for it at the upcoming Düsseldorf). boat show if you're in the market for a totally baller new boat.
