Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal’s 80 Sunreef Power, Great White, will be shown exclusively in the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show happening between September 22 to 25 in Port Hercules. Also attending the yachting event is the Sunreef 80 sailing catamaran. 

Nadal commissioned Great White back in July 2019 and the 80-footer beaute was delivered last summer in Mallorca. Sporting an azure hull with a sleek silhouette with clean lines, the custom cruiser is also fitted with two 1,200 hp engines that help to achieve a top speed of 24 knots or a cruise speed of 14 knots. Just like its tennis pro owner, Great White is one of the top-performing yachts from Sunreef Yachts.

On the inside of the powercat, Nadal has opted for a contemporary yet understated interior design. Within the space, there is a generous salon with two 77-inch sports-centre televisions and a dining area that can accommodate up to eight. The master stateroom even has its own walk-in dressing room and private foldout balcony. Accommodation on board is for a total of 12 guests and four crew members.

The yacht spans 4,000 square feet, with features including an aft garage that can hold Jet Skis, a private foldout balcony in the master suite and large relaxation on the flybridge. To be able to accommodate such an array of facilities, the Great White is considered one of the largest in class.

Great White will be a great addition for Nadal as he mentioned that he intended to use it 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 at the time of the yacht’s sale.

Elsewhere, Sunreef will be exhibiting the Sunreef 80, Double Happiness, which is the builder’s current flagship of sailing catamarans and had premiered during the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival.
