Tennis star Rafael Nadal commissions Sunreef 80 Power

Polish multihull specialist Sunreef Yachts has sold a 24 metre Sunreef 80 Power to international tennis star Rafael Nadal ahead of the model’s premiere this September.

The first unit in the range will premiere at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival while Nadal’s fully customised catamaran is due for delivery next year.

Nadal commissioned the yacht after previously chartering a number of Sunreef catamarans and meeting yard founder and president Francis Lapp at last year’s Cannes Yachting Festival.

The in-house designed model is intended for long cruises and features “bold, contemporary hull styling,” according to the yard.

Key features are stainless steel portlights, high bulwarks and subtle ambient lighting, as well as a superyacht tender garage large enough to accommodate a tender and Jet Ski, as well as numerous other water toys.

The yard offers a number of options for the upper deck, including a waterfall-fed spa pool, upper helm position, bar area and retractable hard-top.

Accommodation on board is for a total of 12 guests and four crew members. Power options include either twin 575hp engines or twin 1,200 hp engines.

Speaking about the sale, Nadal revealed he intends to use his Sunreef 80 Power around the coastline of his home island Mallorca.

“As someone from an island, as I am, the sea is part of our lives and It’s not a secret that I love the sea. Every time I am at home in Mallorca I try to go out and find that time where I can just enjoy my time on a boat,” he said.

Lapp added: “We are very excited to have one of the greatest tennis players of all time on board with us. Mr Nadal’s personality, skills and strength are an inspiration to us.”

The news comes after Nadal put his Monte Carlo Yachts 76 superyacht Beethoven up for sale earlier this year.
