Absolute Yachts: Navetta 75 – The Absolute Sphere
Fans of the Absolute Yachts brand took their first look at the flawlessly executed flagship Navetta 75 in American waters on Face Dock 5F at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, now in its 63rd year. Sharing its name with a unique shape – the Absolute Sphere – makes some wish they listened more in math class. Thanks to the Italian shipyard, geometric forms have never looked this good, so much so… when unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the Navetta 75 captured the Best Interior Design award at the exclusive World Yachts Trophies 2022.
Stateside, the crowd continued to be wowed by the Absolute Sphere’s style emulating perfection, wholeness and harmony in a pure and perfect form demonstrated by: the large windows and high ceilings; single level design architecture which offers the ultimate reward in comfort; and incorporating a new tradition bordering the aft terrace with transparent glass parapets that deliver a view to the big blue, which in all certainty, beats the former fiberglass configuration.
Three more appealing accouterments receiving much admiration include: the inclusion of the modular furniture which allows you to personalize the aft to your own will; separate stairways to and from the bow and stern making it a breeze to pass from the main deck to the flybridge, which itself boasts of a newly designed helm station; and lastly, the overall aesthetics of the main deck as the natural light filtering through accentuates the fine woods and fabric wall coverings.
Absolute Yachts: 48 Coupé – The Absolute Horizon
Sporty in styling and stocky in her stance – the 48 Coupé which is Absolute Yachts’s second new FLIBS debut has too, dazzled those in her USA pathway. Based on the 47 FLY, Absolute Yachts has gone full circle returning to its roots with the 48 Coupé Absolute Horizon; it’s also going to great lengths to lower its carbon footprint. A set of flexible monocrystaline silicon, double-glazed solar panels have been integrated into the hardtop, one of which is transparent to allow the flow of natural light but limit the heat, so as to, not turn the room into an oven.
Absolute’s pledge to sustainability is beyond venerable, seeing that, these fabrications are not generally found on vessels under 50 feet. Remember too, that by using the panels and embracing solar technology as a form of power, rewards boaters peace and quiet at anchor sans le générateur (that’s the generator for those in doubt).
What’s more, the motor yacht categorized as a sport cruiser captivates her onboard audience with an aft cockpit and swim platform, voiced by many to be comparable in magnitude to the 60 FLY. Aft area comparisons aside, one thing is for sure – nothing compares to the infinite and unobstructed “Absolute Horizon” view offered to you. And with that said, let’s see what Absolute has on its horizon…
52 FLY – Absolute Direction
An Absolute Yachts press conference is as exciting as a World Cup soccer match, you don’t know what to expect when it starts, but can guarantee you’ll be left speechless. Such was the case when CCO Cesare Mastroianni and Rob Bowman, director of US-based affairs, presented the upcoming 52 FLY – The Absolute Direction to the marine press corps.
Set to enter the water world at the Miami International Boat Show this coming February of 2023, the 52 FLY expresses, or shall I say advances, the award-winning builder’s ability to incorporate extraordinary livability into a denser dimension. For example, two hallmarks of the range will include a flybridge with a stern terrace and spacious cockpit terrace linked to the saloon and galley; and a foredeck with settee, table and sunbed.
The International Yachting Media will be counting down the four months we must wait in order to see what “DIRECTION” Absolute Yachts has chosen for the 52 FLY. What is already crystal clear from the preprimary renderings – it’s certain to generate the same cheer as your team scoring that winning World Cup goal!
