Having recently taken delivery of his new electric 60 Sunreef Power Eco, Fernando Alonso shared his first impressions from the cruising experience. The Formula 1 legend joined Sunreef’s family of ambassadors alongside superstar athlete Rafael Nadal, sustainability entrepreneur Nico Rosberg and professional explorer Mike Horn.
Alonso commissioned his electric catamaran with Sunreef Yachts in September 2021 in Monaco. During the shipyard’s press conference at the Cannes Yachting Festival last year he explained his decision to build with Sunreef Yachts: “Sunreef Yachts was an easy choice for me. They combine luxury and sustainability like no other shipyard. When I visited their facility in Poland, I saw first-hand how all the details are taken care of. This is what luxury eco yachting should be about.”
“My life goes so fast. I travel a lot around the world. Once on the track, it’s again all about speed. When I enjoy my time off, I want the exact opposite. I want to travel in total silence, with no fumes, no vibrations.”
Fernando Alonso was highly engaged in the build and customization process of his luxury catamaran and has paid numerous visits to the shipyard in Gdansk, Poland. Equipped with Sunreef Yachts’ unique solar power system, his luxury catamaran benefits from a continuous supply of clean power for a smooth e-motoring experience. “The 60 Sunreef Power Eco gave me exactly the yachting experience I was looking for. Long, fume free and quiet cruises let you enjoy the seas on a whole new level. This yacht has some amazing technology that cannot be found anywhere else.”
The Formula 1 champion has recently enjoyed a yachting holiday with friends and family on board his custom 60 Sunreef Power Eco. His catamaran features electric propulsion, an energy-saving air-conditioning system and a custom-engineered battery bank.
“On board, all that matters is peace of mind, fresh air, and good company. Yachting should not be about ego. For me, it’s about sharing good moments and being respectful towards the environment.”
Other standout features of the yacht include a vast aft cockpit with a swim platform and aft garage, a full-beam bow terrace and generous flybridge. For more information about Sunreef Yachts’ range of eco-responsible catamarans, feel free to contact the team.
