Two-time Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso commissions a custom 60 Sunreef Power Eco catamaran with Sunreef Yachts. The build contract was signed on September 1st at the Yacht Club de Monaco by Fernando Alonso and Sunreef Yachts' Founder and President Francis Lapp.

Combining avant-gardist green tech and sustainable design, the Sunreef Yachts Eco range offers the industry's most advanced solutions for a responsible cruising experience, including ultramodern, energy-efficient electric motoryachts.

Fernando Alonso's custom 60 Sunreef Power Eco will be fitted with electric engines and equipped with the shipyard's in-house developed solar power system. The yacht will also feature Sunreef Yachts' custom-engineered ultralight batteries and an energy-saving air-conditioning system. With the signature of this new build contract, the motorsports superstar joins the family of Sunreef Yachts ambassadors.

Sunreef Yachts' ability to combine quality and technology is impressive. I have been observing the evolution of this brand for a while and I appreciate their commitment to push innovation forward with the Sunreef Yachts Eco range. I'm excited to embark on this project as I know the 60 SunreefPower Eco represents everything I am looking for: top engineering, amazing know-how and an amazing eco-friendly product. - Fernando Alonso

We are very proud to welcome Fernando Alonso into our family. We begin a great journey together as we start a new electric 60 Sunreef Power Eco project. We take another big step towards a more sustainable yachting experience and we are thrilled to take it together with an outstanding and inspiring ambassador on board. - Francis Lapp, Sunreef Yachts Founder and President
