What’s inside Rafa Nadal’s 75ft “Beethoven” yacht for sale for £2.3 million

It’s not surprising that the 18-time Grand Slam champion has said that the magnificent vessel, which sleeps eight people in its four bedrooms, feels like his home.

Nadal, 33, paid £2.6 million for the yacht in 2016 and was spotted relaxing on it after losing to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final last year, but he is now selling it with Camper & Nicholsons.

Monte Carlo Yachts constructed Beethoven as the MCY 76 model, and it can sail the seas at a top speed of 35mph.

Nadal, who is worth over £28 million and is from the Balearic Island of Majorca, has always been surrounded by water and uses his yacht for seclusion.

“To me, being on board the Monte Carlo Yacht 76 gives me the opportunity to get away when I want to get away,” he told Barche magazine.

He says he chose the MCY 76 after seeing it at the 2013 Cannes Boat Show. Nadal wanted a larger boat with a sleeker, more sporty, and more modern style after previously owning a Princess V62.

The 18-time Grand Slam winner commissioned Beethoven with that eye-catching deep Mediterranean-blue hull color and white topsides, as well as a carbon-fiber flybridge hardtop with retractable sunroof.

Inside, he went with a four-stateroom layout that included a full-beam master suite with an angled bed, a forward VIP, and two twins. To avoid upsetting the balance, he chose muted colors for the upholstery, including a lot of grays and soft beige.

The tennis star was adamant about one feature: plenty of retractable TVs. “I sometimes come on board and live here,” he explained to Yachting, “so I like to be on a sofa and watch TV in comfort.” It’s incredible for me with the home cinema and two TVs.”

There has been no word on what ‘Rafa’ intends to do when Beethoven sells. What is unlikely is that he will upgrade to a much larger yacht. His home port of Porto Cristo on Mallorca’s southeast coast appears to be limited to yachts of up to 25 meters (82 feet).

Don’t be surprised if Nadal arrives in Porto Cristo aboard one of Monte Carlo Yachts’ brand-new MCY 80 yachts—perfect at 24.62 meters in length (80 feet).

“I love being with people, but it also allows me to get away and be with myself, or only with the people I want to be with, whenever I need to.”

“That is very important in my current lifestyle. I love the sea and believe I could live on it, so perhaps in the future I will spend a lot of time on-board; it’s something I enjoy as a lifestyle.”

Nadal, who has criticized Wimbledon officials for dropping him in the Wimbledon seeding, has acknowledged that the ship has a captain and that he is not in charge of it.

“I need a captain,” he added. I am not always available.

“I believe you need a captain for this type of yacht.” I’m gone for more than half the year, so I need someone to look after everything.”

It’s unknown why Nadal is selling the yacht, although sources suggest he’s considering upgrading.
