New Model: Absolute Navetta 68

Absolute continue to expand and with this new 68, the fifth model in the Navetta range which today expands from 48 to the 73 flagship model.  The Navetta 68 is also Absolute third in size model, and sees the North Italian brand make an important presence above the twenty meter size, filling the gap between the 62 and 73 models, and offering a slightly smaller alternative to the flagship in a similar four cabin layout.  There is a lot of things to like, but its four cabin layout seems really coming from a motor yacht about two meters larger.  But do not be mistaken the Abolsute Navetta 68 is also a revolution of space and size on the main deck, and the flybridge. The 68 Navetta is also one of the few models in this class and size that has stayed true to an astern galley layout.  Performance wise the Absolute Navetta 68 is powered from twin Volvo 900hp or optional 1000hp engines.  Hull one was equipped with the smaller 900hp units and delivered an interesting top speed of 25 knots and a cruise of 20.  A long range speed of ten knots gives about 600 nautical miles of autonomy, which is good but not spectacular when you have a name and the looks of an explorer yacht.
