Ranked as the world most famous tennis player, Rafael Nadal is also one of the many celebrities that actually own a luxury yacht, in this case, the 23.5-meter Monte Carlo Yachts 76, which was named Beethoven. The yacht was delivered in the second quarter of 2016 and penned by Italian design studio, Nuvolari Lenard.
This extraordinary vessel is able to reach a top speed of 31 knots due to being powered by MAN engines. Being able to accommodate up to 8 eights, she has a beam of 5.65m and a draft of 1.6m.
Whenever he has some free time, the celebrated tennis player often heads to Mallorca to rendezvous with Beethoven. For a year now, Nadal has been getting to know every corner of this beautiful vessel by cruising the waters of the Balearics and as a way to unwind from his intense professional athlete lifestyle.
“I visited a lot of different yachts, and the MCY 76 seemed perfect for the kind of life I like to lead on board. The use of space is different and unbelievable. The main saloon is totally open and not like other boats where there is a living area, then a closed galley and a separate helm position. I like the fact that I can sit in the saloon and see out the front; it makes the boat feel bigger. The aft cockpit, too, feels bigger than on other yachts in the class. The same goes for the flybridge. I love the exterior, of course, but the interior is also very important because it’s like a house for me. Even if I am staying in Porto Cristo, I sometimes come on board and live here.” – Rafael Nadal
