Navetta 64 – the Absolute Pathfinder – is immediately recognisable as an Absolute yacht. The exterior is hallmarked by the massive area of glazing enclosing the saloon and main helm, along with equally generous hull windows corresponding to the owner and VIP cabins and the elegant, dynamic motif formed by the side rail with its open gunwales and raked columns. The Navetta 64 has a unique piece of nautical design in the Beach Club, with a cabin looking onto the stern platform. Enclosed by glazing, this space can be used as a beach-club lounge, with a generously sized sofa, or as an average double-bed stateroom. The berth itself is at a level slightly lower than the stern platform, giving guests a superb view of the sea, reminiscent of an infinity pool.
From the very beginning of the design process, Absolute Yachts selects all of the details in every space meant to improve the customer experience – before the boat is ever created. From the size of the windows in the bow to the angle of the amenities in the optional ‘Beach Club’, all of the features important to the customer are laid out within the design of the boat. This ensures that nothing is compromised when it comes to the enjoyment of every space on each new model. By not confining themselves into a specific set of parameters or space and finding solutions instead of compromising, the Absolute team has achieved remarkable success in creating stylish, contemporary living spaces.
The new Absolute Navetta 64 is no exception to this process, where ‘marrying rational and romantic’ improved an already dynamic model line of the Navetta Series. One of the changes implemented from the previous models is the opening of the side wale in the cockpit, which increases the floor area and gives anyone sitting in the cockpit a beautiful, unobstructed view of the ocean.
The transom also has a fascinating option. The standard Navetta 64 has a central door with two windows leading into the large storage area. As an option, though, the transom area can have two full-window doors that open to an ample living space complete with a convertible sofa/bed, two separate wardrobes, a separate air-conditioning system, TV, stereo, fridge, head, and shower. It can literally be an additional VIP cabin that’s right at the edge of the water. And there’s no need to worry about water leaking into space as Absolute has installed a pneumatic gasket that seals the door to be watertight.
Perhaps the most intriguing addition to the Navetta 64 is what Absolute has done with the cockpit doors. For the last several years, the trend in yachting has been to place the galley aft near the cockpit doors with side windows open for serving. Absolute has improved upon this design by including fully opening cockpit doors to extend the outdoor living area inside the salon. Combined with the large picture windows in the salon, you’ll truly feel immersed in your environment.
Also unique to this new model on the flybridge is a “perimeter guide”, an optional transparent cover that allows you to close off the forward part of the flybridge during inclement weather. This is an exceptional option for boaters who spend time in more extraordinary locations. Additionally, on the flybridge is a sunroof in the hardtop that can be opened.
Aft on the flybridge is a sunbathing and entertainment terrace. Perfect for socializing or lounging in the sun’s rays, this space comes equipped with an icemaker, BBQ, sink, cabinet storage for dishes, a large teak table for dining al fresco, and two L-shaped sofas. This is truly an outdoor galley and dining area with a view.
Cruising with guests for extended trips is a delight on the Absolute Navetta 64. The owner’s suite is placed in the bow for multiple reasons, including additional size, huge windows for great views, privacy, and quietness. The owner’s suite stretches the entire beam of the yacht and offers excellent storage opportunities. The en suite master bathroom is uniquely placed in the very front of the bow area, which has resulted in more room, large windows with incomparable views, and, again, great storage.
The VIP cabin is placed midship and offers a large double bed. This is, of course, in addition to the optional VIP cabin that can be placed in the transom area. The main VIP stateroom has a massive portside window and its own en suite bathroom. The third guest cabin on the lower deck offers two twin beds and has its own bathroom that also doubles as the day head on the boat via a separate entry.
There is also a crew cabin on the Navetta 64, accessed via a door on the starboard side walkway, which allows the crew to move from the engine room to the aft platform without entering the salon. The crew space is adequate for a much larger boat, not an afterthought. Extra sound absorbent material was also added surrounding the engine room and crew cabin so there is maximum privacy between the crew and the guests onboard.
You can expect an incredible ride with excellent fuel efficiency thanks to the Volvo Penta D13 engines. Owners have the option of selecting either 1200HP or 1350HP engines, both within the IPS 30 range. Absolute recommends the 1200HP engines for regular boating. However, the 1350HP may be necessary should the owner choose to add a Gyro Stabilizer, heavy tenders or water toys or have the maximum number of guests onboard frequently.
