Tennis superstar Rafa Nadal definitely enjoys the finer things in life, and that includes yachts.
He snapped up his first yacht, Beethoven, back in 2016. Look how at peace he looks above, staring off into the distance with the wind blowing in his hair.
Well, he’s decided it’s time to upgrade, and last month he listed the 76-foot Italian-built MCY 76 motor yacht for $3 million.
His new toy is a custom 80-foot Sunreef Power catamaran, which they’re in the process of building for him. Sunreef Yachts founder and president Francis Lapp is very happy to have him on board, saying “Nadal’s personality, skills and strength are an inspiration to us”, so something tells me Nadal isn’t going to be forking over too much money for this one.
The yacht will be built and delivered by 2020. Via Robb Report, let’s have a look around your standard 80 Sunreef Power catamaran, the latest yacht in the company’s fleet of deluxe vessels:
This new vessel is a multihull yacht built in composite and designed for long cruises in full-on comfort. It features powerful propulsion (two 1,200 hp engines or two 575 hp), a clever personal-watercraft garage and a 39-foot beam that makes for large, fully customizable living spaces, including a superyacht-style flybridge large enough for a hot tub and wet bar.
Sunreef’s latest addition to its power-cat fleet offers up all kinds of possibilities for setting up the main-deck layout, including different dining and seating arrangements, a bar and an open kitchen (which may also be placed belowdecks).
Clients may position the master stateroom forward on the main deck, giving it direct access to the forward full-beam deck space. Besides incredible views and the forward alfresco real estate, the master suite is bathed in natural light, thanks to the overhead skylight. An en-suite bathroom, shower, closet and desk round out the amenities.
Down below, in the 80 Sunreef Power’s hulls, are four guest cabins and a couple of crew cabins as well as the galley and crew mess. In total, the 80 Sunreef Power catamaran accommodates 12 guests.
Not too shabby, right?
A few more snaps:
Always nice to see that they’ve left a little nook for the jetski.
Given what a champion he is, it’s tough to begrudge Rafa a yacht or two, even if this one is more than likely free.
I wonder if he’ll be staying on a yacht when he visits Cape Town in February, when he faces off against Roger ‘The Prince’ Federer in their ‘The Match For Africa 6’ charity event.
Tickets go on sale in early September, and I’m sure they’ll disappear rapidly, as Capetonians clamour to watch these two great competitors (and friends – look at this) do battle.
