When not slogging it out on the tennis court, Spanish tennis champion Rafael Nadal loves spending time sailing and fishing with friends. With this in mind, the 29-year-old two-time Wimbledon winner has bought himself a 23-meter luxury Monte Carlo yacht.
The vessel, named Beethoven, has been moored at the upscale Porto Cristo sailing club in Palma de Mallorca since Friday. Nadal bought the vessel in September at the Cannes boat show, shortly before winning a Davis Cup playoff in Denmark.
The Monte Carlo Yacht 76 is made by French company Beneteau in Montefalcone, Italy, and is one of its best-selling models, costing €2.5 million.
