Project: Absolute 58 Navetta

Absolute went to this years Dusseldorf boat show with an important showcasing of its soon to come future plans. Among the forthcoming important new models in the horizon of the Italian builder was the 58 Navetta, a project for a semi displacement seventeen meter explorer yacht. This project also marked Absolute entry into the explorer segment and should be followed by a smaller model more or less a year after it's release. Absolute declared that unlike other builders for its 58 Navetta its started with a clean sheet, and in this created a medium range explorer yacht with a modern layout in design and fittings. Worth to note that while the 58 Navetta starts from a fresh stamp it follows other Absolute's by being propelled with IPS pod drives, the propulsion which moves all the Italian builder models from forty to 72 feet. The accommodation plan of the 58 Navetta is quite impressive and will feature three guest cabins all with a private shower head, this including a full beam amidships owners stateroom. To aft is a crew cabin for two with a private shower head. An important note is also the little horse-power the 58 Navetta will have which is twin Volvo 435hp engines.
