New Absolute Yachts NAVETTA 48 and the Navetta series.
The Italian shipyard Absolute really has the wind in its sails, several new yachts are on the drawing board and the pace of production continues to impress us.
In recent years, people at Absolute seem to better understand the trends and requests of boaters. Indeed the latest models Navetta 58 and 73 and the flybridge 52 and the popular 58 are there to demonstrate it. But it is the Navetta series that propels the manufacturer into the spotlight and in 2019, the series continu expands, so we now have the Navetta 48 (2019 novelty), Navetta 52, Navetta 58 and Navetta 73.
The newest member of the Navetta family is the 48, another hull of the Navetta series, the 67 is in development. These are quick hulls, although the name Navetta is often associated with semi-displacement hulls. They are Fast Trawler but it’s very fast. Most are top speed over 24 kn (for Navetta 58, top speed = 28 kn). Absolute always offers Volvo IPS propulsion for all Navetta and flybridge models.
I would be tempted to say, almost perfect. Indeed, a yacht can never be described as perfect, but let’s say that the column POSITIVE POINTS, is more simple to write and the column of less NEGATIVE POINTS is more difficult to complete given its dimensions.
The 48 has a very modern configuration, very functional, which will undoubtedly please boaters who wish less than 50 feet, but with three bedrooms, a crew cabin, a comfortable flybridge and especially a modern propulsion and which allows to reach at need more than 27 kn which is remarkable for this category. It is powered by Volvo IPS 650s.
The exterior design is really special with its very functional cockpit, the panoramic view is really well develop especially with its side door to get out of the boat that allows the pilot to have access to the outside easily and especially very quickly. A unique feature for this category.
We must also appreciate the very large windows of the first bridge, its large living room with sofa facing each other, the rear kitchen, the large cockpit and what about its flybridge.
Also noteworthy is the layout on the front of the boat, a very large tanning cushion with backrest. Note the attention to detail, the decoration is really ideal, the ceilings has an actor design and I draw your attention to the ventilation, there are DOCKS ventilation for air conditioning adequately, it is not a broadcaster behind your head right behind the couch (I’m not mentioning which manufacturer I’m talking about), let’s say that Absolute Yachts are not the VALUE BOAT, they have a concern for detail, quality, design worthy of larger ones manufacturers.
Also note the easy access to the crew cabin by the aft deck and it’s only a 48 ft.
We must monitor the release of the new Absolute Yachts 62 for the month of January. It will be inspired by the 58 Fly, which enjoyed instant success everywhere, including boat shows.
The columnists specialized in the world of yachting were all invited to visit the facilities of the manufacturer in Italy in order to be able to communicate to the yachtsmen how to make the yachts and the articles published following this visit are excellent.
They all pointed out the importance of quality control at every stage of production and in particular, the additional tests that are carried out at the end of production, such as the intense rain test in the pool. This allows to have a minimum, or even a very low level of anomalies present during the delivery of the yacht to the customer.
