Project: Absolute Navetta 53

Absolute present the project for an upcoming Navetta 53 model.  The Navetta 53 is to be a replacement for the long eight years produced Navetta 52 which debuted in 2016 and was the second Navetta range model of more livable type of yachts as offered by Absolute.  As the saying says though, you do not change a winning product, you evolve it into the future, and so this new Navetta 53 is based on many technicalities on the 52, all hull dimensions and layout is mostly the same, as is the twin Volvo 480hp power units coupled to twin IPS pod drives.  So what is changed?  The most important changes in the Navetta 53 come in two areas the stern and the glazing serving the main deck.  The stern of the Navetta 53, just like the bigger Navetta 75 and 70 sisters will feature the glass aft parapet for uninterrupted view which coupled with the modular furnishing give a new meaning to the aft deck.  The second is the glazing for the living main deck, now featuring floor to ceiling windows which with the lowered bulwark offer uninterrupted views from outside to inside.

New Model: Absolute 52 Fly

For 2023 Absolute presents its new 52 Fly model, a sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht full of comfort, and class leading accommodation .  The second generation 52 Fly follows the design theme as Absolute Design and Research Lab outlined with the 60 Fly in 2021 and followed with the 56 Fly last year, with this sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht doing the third act of this future looking design.  The new Absolute 52 Fly is a modern flybridge motor yacht, which features an unusual layout of an owners stateroom forward, and the VIP room at midships.  A third cabin with twin berths is located to starboard, with a guest shower head serving the two guest cabins located to port side.  An optional crew cabin is also available in the Absolute 52 Fly, which if you option does not affect the glazed stern parapet open gunwale design.  The Absolute 52 Fly has a living main deck with an astern galley layout, a lounging which becomes dining C-shaped dinette forward, and a side door equipped helm station featuring a direct access to the open gunwale for easy side mooring.  Of note in the Absolute 52 Fly are the flybridge which again is one of the most spacious in this size and is optionable with a hard-top, and the fore deck spaces which is another class leading act.  Falling short somewhere, I would say the performance of the Absolute 52 Fly is not really breath taking, with a top speed of 28 knots and a cruise of twenty, and a 190 nautical miles range.

Project: Absolute Navetta 70

During the Cannes 2023 boat show Absolute presented the project for a new Navetta 70 to be launched in 2024.  The Navetta 70 is an evolution of the Navetta 68 launched in 2019, just a tad over two feet longer and mimicking the evolution Absolute did with the 75 flagship from the 73.  This evolution is mostly about the stern, with the new design embracing the cockpit terrace, a feature which Absolute introduced in 2021 with its 60 Fly model and since then has been making it into all its newer models.  The cockpit terrace re-invents the aft area with vertical opposite settees giving un-interrupted views from the glazed stern, and easier cockpit bathing platform socialization.  But the evolution of the Absolute Navetta 70 does not stop there, with the extra 74 centimetres in length giving a larger aft deck, and a complete new flybridge design available in two Upper Deck A and B choices.  For the remaining the Absolute Navetta 70 does not change much from the 68, including the very liveable saloon with astern galley layout, and the four double cabins lower deck, with floating between main and lower deck VIP suite forward, which might make an owner think if this or the midships stateroom the one to go for. The Absolute Navetta 70 is powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives.

Absolute present the project for a new 52 Fly, which follows the basis of design as launched by the 47 Fly model in 2019, followed by the 60 Fly in 2021, and the 56 Fly in 2022. The 2023 Absolute 52 Fly is the second generation 52 following a same launched model in 2013, with this new project being based on a completely new hull which is some twenty centimetres wider, and about sixty centimetres longer to the mark one. The Absolute 52 Fly follows all the latest concepts of the Italian builder, from a glass cockpit aft deck, to fore-deck lounge dinette, and the shear line drop which creates uninterrupted views from the interior of the main deck.  The interior of the second generation Absolute 52 Fly sees an astern galley main deck layout, with a lower deck offering three double cabins of which is a largest in the category owners stateroom forward, and a guest VIP suite at midships.  All of this comes without sacrificing a third guest cabin as even this comes with standard two in line berths.  The 52 Fly is to be powered by twin Volvo 600hp with IPS pod drives, Absolute propulsion of choice since 2007.

Project: Absolute Navetta 75

Absolute present the project for a new Navetta 75 project, what represents the largest build to date by the Italian boat builder and a replacement to the current Navetta 73 flagship.  Absolute is calling this new project the Absolute Sphere a design set to expand the Navetta range. Absolute chose the sphere, a symbol of perfection and harmony, to describe an explorer yacht that embodies all the essential values and distinctive features that a new project should have.  The Navetta 75 incorporates the shipyard’s most unique features and style, the strengths that set it apart from competitors: in line with the new Fly range concept, the Navetta 75 project brings on board a terrace cockpit and the owner’s cabin at the bow. The new flagship includes also large windows, high ceilings and spaces designed on a single level, both on the main deck and on the lower deck. Navetta 75 comes with two other Absolute style highlights: easy movement on board and ultimate privacy for the owners, their guests and crew. Indeed, from the main deck you can easily access the flybridge both from the aft and from the bow, thanks to two separate stairs. A dedicated crew area can be easily accessed from the cockpit, without interrupting the owners and their guests.  With Navetta 75, Absolute proves once again that research can be used to elevate design and meet needs onboard, from sliding doors to generous storage compartments. Absolute provides impressive solutions once again by offering beautifully designed external and internal areas for good times with friends and family and for absolute versatility in the flybridge and cockpit areas, with modular furnishings with no fixed structural elements.  No power details are announced but imagine a pair of Absolute 1000hp with IPS pod propulsion as the Navetta 73 the 75 replaces.

New Model: Absolute 48 Coupe

It's been a while since Absolute made a sport cruiser, and  now the Italian boat builder returns in the segment with the fully enclosed but very open when desired 48 Coupe.  While in the last decade Absolute has been all about its flybridge motor yachts between fifteen to twenty meters, the first decade was all about its sport cruisers especially the first generation 41 and 45 models, which scored sale successes even in the very closed British market.  The Absolute 48 Coupe shares hull with the 47 Fly model with the same lower deck layout of three double cabins, with the master room located forward and looking to starboard.  The main deck of the Absolute 48 Coupe is an astern galley layout, with an open stern just as the new 60 Fly which makes the aft deck become an infinity lounge when desired.  But the tricks of the Absolute 48 Coupe do not stop in the infinity aft deck, and continue with the large electric openable windows on the main deck, and the solar panels on the hard top which generate 2 kw of power.  The Absolute 48 Coupe is powered by twin Volvo 480hp with IPS pod drives.

Project: Absolute 56 Fly

The result of engineering innovation, Italian design and a passion for details, enters the latest project by Absolute the Piacenza-based shipyard is called 56 Fly.  Featuring a strong, confident personality, 56 Fly was created to be noticed and to fascinate boat owners with a proven mix of comfort and fine design, but also innovation, functionality and on-board convenience.  “Charisma” encapsulates the essence of Absolute’s new craft, which brings together and builds on the most successful features of previous boats. With 56 Fly, Absolute has undertaken intense Research and Design work to enhance those hallmarks, including the revolution of the Flybridge Generation 2022 that began with the 60 Fly launched in 2021, which introduced a new construction approach developed to ensure freedom of movement, ultimate versatility and liveability.  Along with a relaxing bow area with sun loungers and sofa, the outer aft areas are free of fixed elements, so they can be easily furnished as desired. To meet all needs, Absolute provides modular, versatile décor solutions for the entire range.  The visual boundaries between the boat and the sea vanish thanks to a transparent parapet in the cockpit, the open gunwales and the large windows with electric winder in the lounge area.  The magnetic personality of 56 FLY is also expressed in its interiors, featuring comfortable, modern spaces, inspired by Absolute’s signature focus on ease of use.  Liveability culminates in a full beam owner’s cabin at the bow, designed to provide ultimate privacy and comfort, but also an outstanding view through panoramic windows; its interiors are embellished with sophisticated design, transparent details between cabin and bathroom and textural contrasts. As spacious as a second owner’s cabin, the VIP cabin is also full beam. The sleeping area is completed by a third full-feature cabin with single beds, complete with every comfort and with the same ceiling height as the other cabins.  Freedom of movement is the common thread throughout the interiors, connected by sliding doors and enhanced by surprisingly large windows for breath-taking morning views, with plenty of natural light flooding into the cabins.  There are numerous stowage areas to improve comfort in the sleeping area as in the living area, which also features a contemporary kitchen.  No power details are given for the Absolute 56 Fly as yet.

Improve-it = Absolute 50 Fly

In the fall of 2020 Absolute improved and updated its 50 Fly model.  A second in size model in its Flybridge range which today starts with the 47 Fly, the 50 Fly has been updated outside and in a lot of smaller details. Why over do it when a model has success and demand in its current format. The main visible difference from the original 2017 50 Fly comes from the fiberglass dividing plate on the large main deck window which now is smaller, and gives uninterrupted views to the guests inside.  Interior layout the 50 Fly is unchanged, with its astern galley layout serving both inside and outside with ease being unchanged.  As are the three guest cabins in the lower deck which includes a midships full beam owners room that is also still the same.  The 50 Fly also features a crew or surprise guest cabin berth aft.    The Absolute 50 Fly improved version comes powered with Volvo's 2020 presented 480hp engines up from the 435hp which deliver that bit extra in performance, with top speeds up to around 29 knots.

Project: Absolute 60 Fly

Absolute approaches the start of boating season creating high expectations for the Generation 2022 new models. A very optimistic opening awaits Absolute thanks to the launch of a brand new range, as well as two exciting new models.  The first revolution will take place with the 60 Fly project a completely new model called and a motor yacht that will redefine the range with new ground-breaking design elements never seen on a Flybridge boat of eighteen meters in size, such as the Owner’s quarter at the bow and the aft cockpit terrace, free from any fixed furniture elements. The 60 Fly by Absolute reveals an overturning of perspectives, an evolution for the range and for the owner, with versatile life on board and liveability of the spaces.  A new perspective is offered by the bow master cabin, thanks to the owner’s quarter concept: a cabin which takes up the full beam of the boat, unprecedented on a 60/70-foot yacht. The cabin is raised from the lower deck, the ceiling is high, and the array of textures and colour choice for the interior design will satisfy even the most refined tastes. The atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxed, dedicated to the owner’s comfort and privacy: the walk-in wardrobe, the vanity with a sea view, and the wide side windows to feel fully immersed in nature complete the ambience.  The exterior lines are now enriched by elegant transparencies, thanks to the glazed balustrades that offer breath-taking views from both the fly and the cockpit: the latter, thought without fixed elements, can be furnished at the owner’s taste for the first time.  From the aft cockpit there are two comfortable staircases, ideal to reach the wide platform to enjoy a terrace just above the sea; the ample dimensions of the platform offer a comfortable entrance to the crew cabin, through the pantograph door concealed in the transom.  On the upper deck, the Fly area offers a second open-air salon totally immersed in the surrounding landscape, whose generous dimensions are just waiting to be lived: al-fresco galley and dining area, lounge space, high-tech helm station are framed by elegant design lines, colour contrasts and refined finishes.  Even the bow area is designed for maximum versatility of use thanks to a comfortable sofa with table, a sunbathing area, and music: social boating and privacy, all in one, day and night.  The Absolute 60 Fly boasts the latest generation technology, featured in modern and ultra-accessorized dashboards, with clear instrumentation always at your fingertips. Both helm stations on the main deck and flybridge have double piloting seats, ergonomic and modern. From the main deck dashboard, a very wide windscreen, with minimized and rounded side support pillars, guarantees an unobstructed view of the horizon. Even on the flybridge, a safe navigation topped with conviviality is ensured, thanks to the sofa and sundeck placed next to the helm, allowing the captain to drive with company. A third mooring station is also available at the stern, which can be integrated in a dedicated cabinet in the cockpit on starboard side, equipped with joystick, bow thruster control and engines ignition panel.  Great care for the furniture as well: on board the Absolute 60 Fly modular furniture can be adapted to the actual use. The areas are dedicated to the social moments with family and friends, to enjoy panoramas in complete freedom: various configurations are available for the owner to choose from, in order to fully enjoy the on-board life as desired. The green attitude of the shipyard proves itself thanks to the opportunity of integrating the solar panels into the hard top to ensure a lower environmental impact. Moored at anchor, the owner can enjoy the silence completely immersed in nature, by using solar energy to operate the essential services on board, without the continuous use of generators. The safety standards fear no competition even with larger models, and the spaces usability is top-notch both for the storage and for maintenance and spaces inspections activities. The Absolute 60 Fly is to be powered by twin Volvo 725hp with IPS pod drive propulsion.  Launching of hull one is planned for June 2021.

New Model: Absolute Navetta 64

The already-complete Navetta range has expanded with a tangible expression of generous and open-minded engineering. All of Absolute’s best features have been implemented as well as some amazing onboard innovations. The Navetta 64, The Absolute Pathfinder, like her siblings has the Navetta DNA and it easy to see why. The wide and uninterrupted side-glass window, which runs from the aft mirror to the windshield, outlines her exterior shapes. These are characterized by the significant enlargement of the bow windows and the opening of the side gunwales in the cockpit in the Beach Club version, the transom can be turned from a large storage space into an actual double cabin at the water’s surface sealed tight with a fully-glazed, certified watertight access door. Beach Club by day and VIP cabin with an en-suite head by night: this alchemy is made possible thanks to the placing of the crew cabin, with two berths directly accessible from the second starboard-side door.  Aboard the Navetta 64, all spaces are designed to offer the maximum enjoyment of each cabin, always panoramic and bright, thanks to unprecedented-sized windows. In addition, the spaces are furnished and refined with everything you need to feel just like at home, without any sacrifices. The flybridge has a far greater width than found on any other nineteen meter yacht. On the main deck, the salon is surrounded by frameless glass windows, offering breath-taking panoramas. The comfortable sofas, the large table, the entertainment area, and the galley easily connect to the cockpit. The entire main deck is overlooked by a raised helm and a massive windshield of over three meters, curved and frameless for absolute visibility. Below deck, the master cabin is placed in the bow with a king-size berth, large side windows, and a full-beam head. The VIP suite really stands out: its liveability is astounding and the materials selected are simply exquisite. Furthermore, the third cabin is a double stateroom with single beds. Absolute Navetta 64 is powered by twin Volvo 900hp and or optional 1000hp engines, with IPS pod drives.
