LIFE is quite literally a breeze for world No2 Rafael Nadal when he’s riding in his private yacht.
In 2019, the record 13-time French Open winner splashed out £4.5million on a customised 80 Sunreef Power catamaran to replace his 76-foot Italian-built MCY 76 motor yacht he called Beethoven, which sold for £2million.
And it boasts some incredible features, including a waterfall-fed spa pool, jet ski garage and on-deck bar.
Let SunSport show you inside Nadal’s new vessel – without needing a VIP invite.
Built for long cruises and not skimping on full comfort, the 80 Sunreef Power is powered by two 1,200 hp engines.
It has a personal jet-ski garage and a 39-foot beam with a superyacht-style flybridge that offers a vast living space big enough to house a hot tub, a wet bar and the waterfall-fed pool.
The main deck can be set up in a variety of ways, dependent on your dining needs with different seating, an open plan kitchen and a bar.
The master suite, which is also on the main deck, offers sea views, as well as natural light thanks to the skylight overhead.
It has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a spacious closet and a desk.
There are four guest cabins and two crew cabins, with up to 12 guests able to be accommodated at one time.
Nadal, who was born on the Balearic Islands, Spain, has always had an affiliation with the ocean.
“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 in a statement after acquiring the vessel.
“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.”
With the possibility of skipping his defences of the US Open and Roland Garros because of the coronavirus pandemic, it seems like Nadal may have plenty of downtime to lounge on his new purchase.
