Recently delivered to tennis superstar Rafael Nadal, the 80 Sunreef Power catamaran Great White, has been making waves in the industry since early June.

An experienced boater, Nadal has been passionate about yachting since childhood and seizes every opportunity to go out to the sea with friends and family.

The idea of building a customised catamaran has been part of the superstar athlete’s plans for a while. Seduced by both the yacht’s design and living space, he joined Sunreef Yachts’ family of owners, taking delivery of Great White mid-2020.

Great White accommodates up to eight guests in a comfortable four-cabin layout. Her starboard hull houses the owner’s suite, one of the yacht’s guest cabins and the crew quarters.

With generous living space, the master stateroom features a walk-in dressing, a sofa, a flip-down ceiling TV above the double bed and a private fold-out balcony. The port hull accommodates for two more roomy guest cabins as well as the catamaran’s galley.


Great White’s light-filled saloon offers two oversized lounging sofas by the aft cockpit, dining space for eight to the bow, and two 77’’ TVs installed back-to-back. An additional lounging spot was set up next to the bow terrace entrance.

The catamaran’s full-beam stern cockpit provides for an outstanding alfresco dining space, well protected from sun and wind and fitted with a weatherproof TV.

Below the large sofa, the aft garage conceals a large jet ski and a selection of water toys along with a refuelling station. A wide hydraulic swim platform has been installed to carry the yacht’s tender and offers an extra sunbathing spot beside the water.

The flybridge provides guests with an exterior lounge arranged in cosy seating areas, a bar, big sun pads and a pop-up TV.

Great White’s propulsion comes from twin 1200HP engines allowing for a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.
