New Absolute Navetta 48 – 2019

Allow me to introduce the Absolute Navetta 48, in our opinion, the revelation of the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2018 edition. Really, it is rare to see so much available space in a yacht of only 48 feet.

This Absolute Navetta 48 will definitely attract boaters with it’s volume and natural light.

They made her to be very efficient ergonomics on all decks was well thought out the interior. The exterior look is inspired by the new fast trawler but with its two Volvo IPS 650, it is able to reach 26 kn, which is very fast for this category.

Let’s start our visit by accessing the boat by the hydraulic platform. A crew cabin space is equipped with a wide door directly accessible from the platform. Most other manufacturers have access to the crew located under a cockpit seat. The difference is major.

The crew cabin is so accessible and well laid out that it can easily become the 4th bedroom for a guest. The washer / dryer is located in this location.


The cockpit is equiped with a vertical retractable shade that helps to reduce the impact of the sun (from the ceiling of the flybridge to the back of the seats in the cockpit), the roof of the flybridge naturally protects you from the sun and the weather. The patio door opens completely to give you easy and user-friendly access to the kitchen.


Now inside, on your left the fridge / freezer is present, followed by a storage cabinet with wine cellar (refrigerated). Here you have a unique work space for a yacht under 50 feet.

The living room opens up to you, large, spacious with two sofas facing each other and especially surrounded by large windows which is very spectacular for this category. It’s hard not to be seduced by this abundant and generous natural light.

The wheelhouse on the starboard side is well thought out especially since it has a door allowing you to go outside easily. This is almost unique for this category. It is not a big window but a door.

Subsequently, in front of you the open staircase to the lower deck which gives access to three bedrooms. The owners suite is at the front and the bed is diagonally arranged, another rarity for this category. This allows you to have an innovative design, to view the water through the two large windows.

There is, of course, a complete head including a seperate shower for this room and of course a walk-in closet.

The corridor also gives access to two other rooms. The VIP can also serve as a master bedroom which has a double bed, a very large window and its own walk-in closet. You have access to a washroom with a seperate shower. This washroom also serves the 3rd guest room consisting of two beds side by side and always with a large window.


Note that all floors are in high quality wood, there is no carpet. This characteristic is very particular for this category.

The lighting is also very modern with LED, a low energy lighting and does not generate heat which you will find is used everywhere, inside and out.

The flybridge is very spacious and extremely comfortable. Covered with a hardtop, it has a full wetbar and the cockpit is central allowing lots of seating near the captain.

And finally the front of the yacht which has a large space to relax in the sun, you will not be disappointed. On the video, you will see a sunshade umbrella that can be arranged.


In short, this 48-foot yacht will satisfy the most demanding of boaters looking for a three-bedroom boat, a cabin crew for a 4th bedroom, Volvo IPS propulsion, a hardtop, a hydraulic platform, a Seakeeper stabilizer (optional), the list of possible facilities is voluminous. You can indeed customize this yacht with every practical options for boaters.
