Sunreef Yachts has announced that Spanish two-time Formula One world champion, Fernando Alonso, has commissioned a new 60 Sunreef Power Eco to be built by the Polish shipyard.
This is not the first time that Sunreef Yachts has built a custom catamaran for an world-renowned sports star – in June 2020 the shipyard delivered an 80 Sunreef Power yacht called Great White to tennis champion Rafael Nadal.
Following the signing of the contract at the Yacht Club de Monaco, Alonso commented: “Sunreef Yachts’ ability to combine quality and technology is impressive. I have been observing the evolution of this brand for a while and I appreciate their commitment to push innovation forward with the Sunreef Yachts Eco range.”
“I’m excited to embark on this project as I know the 60 Sunreef Power Eco represents everything I am looking for: top engineering, amazing know-how and an amazing eco-friendly product,” added Alonso.
The 18.3 metre 60 Sunreef Power which Alonso has selected features a futuristic design and cutting edge technology that allows for sustainable cruising at sea. The environmentally-friendly catamaran is powered by electric engines with an ultralight battery bank for emissions- and vibration-free cruising.
The yacht is also designed with an advanced solar panel power system that covers up to 68.6 square metres of the yacht’s surface, allowing up to 13kWp of green energy to be generated.
Interiors on board are finished in sustainable materials and can accommodate up to 12 guests and four crew.
“We are very proud to welcome Fernando Alonso into our family. We begin a great journey together as we start a new electric 60 Sunreef Power Eco project. We take another big step towards a more sustainable yachting experience and we are thrilled to take it together with an outstanding and inspiring ambassador on board,” commented Sunreef Founder and President Francis Lapp.
