Absolute Yachts will be one of the many exhibitors joining the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival, Europe’s most important boat show which will be held from September 6-11. The Absolute Yachts’s presence in Cannes will be hallmarked by the presence of nine boats on display: the highlight of the booth will be the world premiere of the shipyard’s new flagship, the Navetta 75, which will be flanked by three models from the Fly range (50, 56 and 62 Fly) and five other models from the Navetta family (from 48 to 68 feet).
Navetta 75, presented in the company’s 20th anniversary year, embodies all the characteristics that hallmark Absolute yachts. For this reason, its keyword is “sphere”, a reference to its all-round perfection and balance. Like all Absolute yachts, the Navetta 75 offers a sensation of unlimited space, giving the impression of a yacht of even greater size. This is achieved by details such as an extensive use of sliding doors, exceptionally large windows, and internal and external spaces designed in function of their use by guests.
More specifically, the aft cockpit features Absolute’s signature cockpit terrace, which enhances the feel of a boundless cruising experience by highlighting the sea view for unique emotions. Visual continuity with the stern platform and the sea is assured by a discreet but highly robust stainless-steel guardrail and glazed balustrade. As far as furniture is concerned, Absolute provides modular units that can be arranged as desired, though owners can specify whatever they wish.
The sense of space continues in the interiors, particularly in the master cabin forward, with its large hullside windows that optimize light and offer breath-taking views. The centreline queen berth is accessible from three sides, and the owner has a walk-in closet and a full-beam head. The master stateroom’s forward position ensures silence and privacy, enhanced by its private staircase. The sleeping zone also includes two doubles with en-suite bathrooms, and a twin-berth cabin at midships.
Crew quarters offer generous space for up to three, with separate galley and laundry room, features typical of much larger yachts. But if the owner prefers to cruise without a crew, these accommodations can also be used for additional guests, as they are equipped with very high quality finishes, at the same level as the other areas on board. Everything is further enhanced by a system of stairs and passages that allow the crew to operate in total discretion, without having to pass through the salon or other guest spaces
Last but not least, the sustainability theme: Navetta 75, in fact, can have optional solar panels built into the fly hard top that make it possible to run refrigerators and other on-board systems while at anchor, so that guests can enjoy the sea without the hum of engines.
Navetta 75, in short, is a very sophisticated and innovative design, which will undoubtedly leave the Cannes visitors open-mouthed. Navetta 75 and the other eight boats of the Italian builder can be admired in the Pantiero Area (PAN 214-082).
