Inside tennis star Rafael Nadal’s 80-foot catamaran, the Great White

Rafael Nadal has given us an inside look at his incredible 80-foot catamaran, the Great White. 

The tennis superstar has an incredible 80 Sunreef Power catamaran and it has a garage full of water toys. 

What makes it even more remarkable is the fact Nadal and his wife designed it themselves.

In the catamaran’s garage, which is big enough for a tender, Nadal keeps a jet ski, sea-bob, and jetsurf. 

But the tennis star says he doesn’t go near the jetsurf. 

“For me, no chance. I don’t do it. It’s so difficult, and [bad] for the knees and everything. I’m a little bit scared,” he told Nico Rosberg.

Inside, the vessel has 360 square meters of living space. 

You walk on board to a massive back deck with a huge outdoor dining table and couches that look over the water. 

From there, you walk into the salon, which is fitted out with two massive TVs and lounges that stretch from one end of the room to the other. 

Above the salon is the flybridge. 

This is where all the driving and navigation equipment is kept. 

It’s also where Nadal put a huge BBQ and beer tap (he’s only human).

Two floors down from the flybridge are four cabins. 

Each cabin in Rafael Nadal’s catamaran is incredibly comfortable, but the master suite is undeniably the soul of the vessel. 

The Spanish player and his wife Maria Francisca Perello designed it to have a walk-in dresser, double bed, sofa, TV, and most impressively, a fold-down balcony from which you can dive into the water below. 

In fact, Nadal said he used this little balcony as a personal launch pad every morning before breakfast.

Nadal said the catamaran was designed to give him a much-needed break in between tournaments. 

“The pressure of competing every single day is high, you can’t hide that,” he told Boat International. 

“When I come back home, I have the chance to go out and spend maybe just one day away from everything without thinking about tennis, just diving and spending the night on board.”
