Sunreef Yachts has announced its latest high-profile customer, after Rafael Nadal ordered an 80 Power catamaran
Tennis star and keen boater Rafael Nadal will be the proud owner of one of the first Sunreef 80 Power catamarans after buying into the Polish yard’s new flagship range.
As comfortable on the water as he is on a clay court, Nadal cites his childhood in Mallorca as the reason why he’s so keen to spend his downtime boating.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Having previously chartered a Sunreef yacht, the 18-time Grand Slam winner is well acquainted with the Polish yard’s work.
“I am very happy to [join the] Sunreef Yachts family and would like to thank [yard founder and president] Francis Lapp for making this possible,” he added.
The Sunreef 80 Power is due to make its public debut at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, although Nadal’s fully-customised version will not be delivered until next year.
Nadal also owns an MCY76 called Beethoven, which was listed for sale last month with Camper & Nicholsons, asking €2.6million.
