The first Generation 2021 model, the new Navetta 64 “The Absolute Pathfinder,” is a boat that we can define as all-around. She includes not only Absolute Yachts’ best features but also original upgrades that are the result of careful planning and, in the shipyard’s words, “generous engineering.”
The exterior lines are outlined by the long side windows—which run uninterrupted from the transom up to the windshield—by the significant enlargement of the windows in the bow, the opening of the side wale in the cockpit, and two side doors at starboard, completely invisible, to access the crew cabin and the steering position.
The most remarkable novelty is in the transom. In the Beach Club version, the usual storage area finds new life: an utterly unique solution for boats of this size. This version turns it into an additional VIP cabin, meaning an actual double room with en-suite head, a bed convertible into a sofa, two walk-in closets, air conditioning, a stereo, a fridge, and a separate shower cabin. This new cabin, right at water’s surface, is obtained thanks to the placing of the crew cabin, which has independent access, separated from the convivial areas.
In addition to being curved, the access door to the Beach Club is fully tinted, resulting in a beautiful engineering work! The function of this door is twofold: both watertight and waterproof. The presence of a pneumatic gasket allows both the waterproof use while resting, and the watertight one while navigating. It is enough to push a button to activate a compressor that inflates the gasket, which expands, maximizing the adherence of the inner tubes to the metal frame.
Another key novelty of the Navetta 64 concerns the stern cockpit: the opening of the side wale and the removal of the traditional bulwark have increased the floor area by around 1 foot on each side—a significant advantage, considering a beam of around 18 feet.
Furthermore, thanks to a new handrail, the view is completely clear and directly enjoyable from below the railing, rather than above it. From here, a wide side walkway—with high handrails and a continuous parapet—brings you safely to the bow area that has a double sunbed, a teak table, and a double sofa.
The third outdoor relaxation area is on the flybridge—probably the most spacious among the boats of this size and possibly even larger than the fly of some bigger yachts. To maximize livability, the width at the base of the flybridge is almost identical to that in the salon. The result? An immense terrace equipped with a wet-bar—an actual galley with fridge, ice machine, barbecue, and sink—a large teak table, a relaxation area with deckchairs, a central steering position, and two L-shaped side sofas to steer surrounded by guests, in total safety. This space has no steps and is delimited, at the stern, by a new transparent parapet that offers a breathtaking view. In addition, the hardtop has an openable soft top. You can even enjoy the upper deck when the summer is over: a transparent cover in a rigid material allows you to close the space thanks to a perimeter guide.
The interiors are the ultimate expression of Absolute Yachts’ philosophy: maximum space, quality, and comfort.
At the aft end, the galley—equipped just like the one back home—is easily connected to the cockpit thanks to the complete opening of the French windows. The salon, finished with refined decor, is furnished with comfortable sofas and an entertainment area.
The inside steering position is protected by an incredible windshield, consisting of a single element of more than 16 feet and without central pillars. The view is uninterrupted, both standing and sitting. At its side, there is a helpful side door, ideal for maneuvering operations.
Below deck, the master cabin is at the bow and covers the entire width of the boat, boasting lots of room. Its smart furnishing ensures incredible livability. In this cabin, you can enjoy a king-size bed, comfortable wardrobes, roomy stowage spaces, a vanity area, and a bookcase: all surrounded by large side windows that follow the natural curvature of the hull and create a living room surrounded by the sea.
The full-beam head has two large side windows, a separate shower cabin, and a large countertop in fine materials. The shower and the head are on the same level, therefore, there is no need to worry about steps.
From the bow mezzanine, descending a few steps further, you reach the lower deck: similarly coplanar and without steps in between. At port side, the VIP double cabin has an en-suite head and is furnished in the same spirit of the master cabin. At starboard, the second guest cabin has two berths, a private wardrobe, and a head accessible both from the inside and from the central hallway.
All cabins have very large and bright windows, with no central pillars and consisting of a single continuous glass.
The head in the VIP cabin develops longitudinally around a central area with a large mirror, a sink, and drawers, while the shower and the toilet stand at the sides. The wide opening consists of a double sliding door: if you want to close it, the two shutters move together and are automatically secured. Aboard a floating hose, similar details do make the difference.
Accessible from the central hallway of the lower deck cabins, the precious storage area below the master cabin is exceptionally roomy.
Finally, the new generation of switchboards with industrial structures additional double insulation ensures maximum comfort and a level of safety far beyond the sector’s standards.
As for the engines, on the Navetta 64, the two Volvo Penta D13 engines are offered in two configurations, both in the IPS range: 1200 (900 hp) and 1350 (1000 hp).
