F1’s Fernando Alonso commissions 60 Sunreef catamaran

Two-time Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso has commissioned a custom 60 Sunreef Power Eco catamaran with Sunreef Yachts. The build contract was signed on 1 September at the Yacht Club de Monaco by Fernando Alonso and Sunreef Yachts’ founder and president Francis Lapp.

Fernando Alonso’s custom 60 Sunreef Power Eco (https://sunreef-yachts.us18.list-manage.com/track/click?u=76e6f20dd954fcc00b543b893&id=a9d987c286&e=a01197a492) will be fitted with electric engines and equipped with the shipyard’s in-house developed solar power system. The yacht will also feature Sunreef Yachts’ custom-engineered ultralight batteries and an energy-saving air-conditioning system. With the signature of this new build contract, the motorsports superstar joins the family of Sunreef Yachts ambassadors.

Alonso says: “Sunreef Yachts’ ability to combine quality and technology is impressive. I have been observing the evolution of this brand for a while and I appreciate their commitment to push innovation forward with the Sunreef Yachts Eco range. I’m excited to embark on this project as I know the 60 SunreefPower Eco represents everything I am looking for: top engineering, amazing know-how and an amazing eco-friendly product.”

The yard has made a series of high-profile owner partnerships, with MIN reporting last week that tennis ace Rafael Nadal’s Sunreef 80 is being showcased at this year’s Monaco Show.

The yard says that by combining green tech and sustainable design, the Sunreef Yachts Eco range offers the industry’s most advanced solutions for a responsible cruising experience, including ultramodern, energy-efficient electric motoryachts.
