Nerea Yacht Continues to Grow
NY24, day cruiser with an unmistakable design, synonymous with craftsmanship and Made in Italy design, convinces both the national and international markets
NY24 Bit of Blue, already launched and tested in the Adriatc Sea, is intended for an Italian owner, will therefore remain in the national territory, whereas NY24 Sea Salt – both in the Deluxe version – is going through the last stage of construction and will be delivered next May, to reach the Croatian coasts.
The two sales represent the achievement of another important milestone for the boat boutique of Dario Messina, approaching the market on tiptoe but with very clear ideas, thanks to an experience as a craftsman rather than as an entrepreneur, with a very specific goal: to offer, to the most attentive and demanding owners, yacht highly distinguishable for their clean and timeless design, with attention to the smallest details, thanks to a careful selection of materials, a functionality that translates into ease of use and outstanding performance.
Despite the anomalous and unpredictable year, Nerea Yacht has shown courage and determination, investing its resources both in building sheds, to improve production capacity, and in research, design and development of new ideas. The consolidated collaboration between the founder of the shipyard, Dario Messina, and the designers Davide Bernardini and Alessio Battistini of IdeaeITALIA, has given life to a new totally custom pilot chair with a unique and unmistakable design.
The heart of the boat is the living area in the central cockpit, with a fine convertible dinette where, lowering the central table, this space turns into an inviting, extended sunbathing area. The cockpit can be equipped with two drawer refrigerators, a concealed sink and a stove to guarantee sociable entertainment. A very spacious swim platform and the transom on three levels make a very easy access onboard or down to the water, and the engine room hatch, with remote electrical opening, makes inspections quite simple.
The entire walk able surfaces – from the swim platform to the front deck and even the steps in the cabin – are covered by teak, a refined and natural material which contributes to give a classic/modern signature to the boat style. Protection from the sun is granted by a practical bimini top which extends over the entire living area. Thanks to a careful study of the proportions, the designers managed to get very roomy interior spaces in less than 8 meters in length.
In fact, below deck, NY24 presents a cabin with a large container sofa – convertible in double berth – an enclosed toilet niche and a very welcoming environment to ensure a comfortable stay on board throughout the day and, if desired, even at night. A ‘special-V’ shape hull with 18.5° deadrise with lateral planning supports has been developed to offer great comfort when the boat is moored or at anchor, thanks to the increased floating surface, but also a fast gliding entrance with a soft passage on the wave and safe driving even in rough seas. The powerful Volvo engine connected to the duoprop sterndrive installed on the first unit guarantees great performances with a top speed of 38 knots and a comfortable cruising of 28 knots.
