Nero is now on sale for €75 mil - Burgess had an open day at the weekend.

The elegant Nero was launched in 2007 in Yantai, China. She shares some similarities with JP Morgan's famous Corsair IV, the largest US-built yacht (wrecked in 1949), in her length and general layout. A superbly executed retro design !

Suleiman Kerimov's Ice, bought from Ernesto Bertarelli, if the stub article on Wikipedia is to be trusted (!), visited Monaco a couple of days ago. Mr Kerimov is reported to be making steady progress from the serious burns he suffered when he crashed his Ferrari Enzo into a tree on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice last November.
