The F1 driver of the Aston Martin team, Fernando Alonso enters the select club of the nautical world as the owner of a spectacular yacht, an electric propulsion catamaran. After taking the podium in the first race of the 2023 championship in Bahrain, he has announced the purchase this summer of his new 60 Sunreef Power Eco. Alonso has opted for the Sunreef shipyard, founded in 2002 in Gdansk (Poland) by the French entrepreneur Francis Lapp (Alsace, France, 1958) and currently one of the leaders in the design, production and manufacture of luxury catamarans. It is also the shipyard in which Rafa Nadal trusted to order his new boat and also the ex-racer Nico Rosberg.

The peculiarity of Alonso’s new boat is that his 60 Sunreef Power Eco is an electrified and solar-powered yacht, and its length is 60 feet (about 18.3 meters) and 10 meters at its widest point. With a density of less than 5.2 kilograms per kWh, the batteries of Sunreef Yachts‘ eco boats are 30% lighter than those commonly used in the yachting world with power ranging from 190 to 380 kW and can be recharged on chargers of different voltages.

The two hulls and some parts of the decks and roofs are equipped with solar panels, in total more than 68 m2 capable of generating 21 kWp. It is equipped with electric and hybrid engines and ultra-light batteries. Above, one of the cabins, located in the lower part, all with individual bathrooms.

Thanks to the use of state-of-the-art technologies, it achieves the best energy efficiency and the greatest autonomy. With the light and innovative system of solar panels integrated into the sides of the hull and in any curved part, the 60 Sunreef Power Eco boats up to 68.6m² of solar panels and generates up to 21.5kWp.

The Asturian pilot explained that “the world is moving in this direction, we want more sustainability, and for me it makes a lot of sense to opt for an electric catamaran. This type of boat allows you to forge a closer connection with the sea”. Alonso was introduced to Sunreef Yachts catamarans in the summer of 2021, when he chartered a Sunreef 80 to cruise Greece. “This will be my first yacht, I don’t have anything specific in mind, but I want it to always be ready to go. Sometimes I go out to sea spontaneously, so I want to make sure it’s reliable. I know the technology of this electric boat is complex, but I also see the effort Sunreef Yachts puts in. I look forward to spending a lot of time on board,” he explained.

The 60 Sunreef Power Eco accommodates 12 passengers and four crew members. In addition to sundecks, sundeck, dining room, lounges or Jacuzzi, the owner can customize it and adapt it to his tastes. Alonso has revealed his choice: “a barbecue is a must for me, as well as a good sound system, because music will be important on board, and I will certainly bring water toys to combine relaxation with sport”.
