If you’re here, you’ve agreed to enter into a chat about Rafa Nadal’s new yacht.
Please sign on the dotted line and initial here, here, and here.
Last July, it emerged that Rafa Nadal was flogging his yacht, Beethoven, listing the 76-foot Italian-built MCY 76 motor yacht for $3 million.
Don’t be daft – he wasn’t going yachtless like some commoner, ordering a custom 80-foot Sunreef Power catamaran, with the company promising that it would be built and delivered by the end of this year.
According to Robb Report, Nadal received the yacht earlier this month, just in time for his 34th birthday:
The ultra-modern multihull, which was custom designed for Nadal and his wife Maria, combines five-star comfort with exceptional seaworthiness. Built in composite, the cat sports a sleek silhouette and clean lines that are synonymous with the Polish shipyard.
The 80-footer is an all-around leisure vessel which is perfect for long offshore cruising. It features powerful propulsion in the form of two 1,200 hp engines and can reach a top speed of 24 knots or cruise speed of 14 knots. But it’s the inside where things get exciting.
Yeah, let’s get into the guts of this catamaran.
Are those beanbags or couches, or some weird combo of the two? Either way, the yacht looks nice.
More on its signature features:
The yacht’s generous living space spans nearly 4,000 square feet and represents one of the largest in class. It has been fully personalized for the tennis pro with no expense spared. Finished in an elegant colorway of cream, coffee and beige, the interior includes an impressive main deck saloon that has direct access to the front terrace, luxurious guest cabins that come complete with en-suites and an impressive owner’s suite. Fit for tennis royalty, the suite features an opulent en-suite and its own side balcony where the Spaniard can work on his tan.
Elsewhere on the vessel, there’s a spacious flybridge with a fully equipped wet bar, a barbecue and a sizable relaxation area with requisite sun pads. There’s also a large stern garage where Rapha can store his jet skis and water toys (or his beloved tennis rackets).
We don’t call him Rapha, we call him Rafa. Come now.
Reports on the cost of the yacht range from $5 million through to $6,2 million, but I get the feeling he may have scored a discount due to the press coverage Sunreef has received.
Given that Forbes estimates his 2020 earnings at a cool $40 million, he’d be more than able to pay if he had to.
