Absolute Yachts returns to Miami for the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show, the largest boat and yacht event in the world with over 1,000 exhibitors and thousands of boats. Absolute’s presence in Miami will be hallmarked by the world premiere presentation of the new 52 FLY, plus the 56 FLY, the 60 FLY, the Navetta 64, and the Navetta 75. Taking place from 15 to 19 February 2023, the glamorous show will feature, in addition to the boats, a series of live concerts, interactive boating experiences, the latest innovations in aquatic recreation, and the legendary Miami parties that go on until the small hours.
The Absolute 52 FLY is the latest arrival in the brand’s Flybridge range. The keyword chosen by Absolute to describe the 52 FLY is “direction”, and in fact it constitutes a new way forward in the world of yachting, offering space and features impossible to find in other boats of this size. All its features were designed to guarantee a comfortable cruising experience, enhanced by the ample headroom, minimal use of steps, and endless thoughtful design details that make life on board a pure pleasure. The open-air areas provide innovative ways of enjoying the marine environment at all times of day, from breakfast on the spacious cockpit terrace, to sunbathing on the bow loungers and cocktails on the stunning flybridge, complete with a dining table, galley, and bar unit. Inside, the saloon offers 360° views by virtue of the extensive glazing. The galley has everything that even the most demanding chefs need, and it includes a spacious pantry, unusual in this category of yachts. The full-beam owner cabin is located in the bows for optimum peace and tranquillity. A midship VIP cabin is in every way comparable to a second master cabin, a true surprise for its space and en-suite bathroom. The third guest cabin has an electrical system for seamless transformation from twin berths to double. In addition, there is a multi-function crew cabin.
The 56 FLY, at its premiere presentation in the USA, is a compendium of versatility, innovation, and excellence, packed with thoughtful features that make it perfect for extended travel at sea. The basic concept underpinning the 56 FLY is “charisma”, a characteristic emerging from the yacht’s extraordinary attention to detail. The separation between the yacht and the marine environment is minimized by transparent parapets and open gunwales. Absolute’s masterly use of modular furniture ensures that spaces for relaxation at the bows and in the cockpit area can be personalized according to the occasion, from breakfast overlooking the sea right through to cocktails with your friends at sunset.
The 60 FLY is a model with characteristics normally associated with much larger craft. Its exterior design facilitates use by both guests and crew, with two lateral stairwells from the stern cockpit to the swim platform and seamless transitions between the saloon, galley, and cockpit that enhance liveability. The keyword for the 60 FLY is “prism”, and this expresses the yacht’s uniquely multi-faceted aspect, its ability to provide many different ways of enjoying the sea by means of an incredibly versatile layout. The aft cockpit is exceptionally spacious and comfortable, and its furnishings can be tailored according to user requirements. The flybridge becomes a lofty open-air space, itself combining different settings, from the ultra-accessorized fly helm station to the dining area with a galley, and a stern platform for total relaxation.
The Navetta 64 shares all the Navetta DNA, but with some remarkable innovations. Saloon glazing is uninterrupted to offer 360° views from the saloon, and here the original feature is the reverse-raked windscreen in front of the helm station, giving the captain greater visibility and creating a distinctive, aggressive design touch. Another point of strength is the optional beach club, with a cabin looking onto the stern platform and a double sliding glass window at sea level. The flybridge is an experience in itself, with a space for relaxation at the stern, a dining area with a bar and grill at the center, and a helm station flanked by two C-shaped settees. Throughout, the Navetta 64 features Absolute’s signature artisanal skill, with materials such as solid walnut and elm timber, crystal glass, and steel.
The flagship Navetta 75 embodies all the characteristics that hallmark Absolute yachts. For this reason, its keyword is “sphere”, a reference to its all-around perfection. It offers a sensation of generous space, achieved by features such as the extensive use of sliding doors, and exceptionally large windows. For example, the owner cabin, located in the bows for maximum silence and privacy, has large hull side windows that optimize light and views, a centreline queen berth accessible from three sides, a walk-in closet, and a full-beam bathroom. The cabins also comprise two doubles with en-suite bathrooms, and a twin-berth cabin at midships. Crew quarters offer generous space for up to three, with a separate galley and laundry room, features typical of much larger yachts. The design innovation lavished on the Navetta 75 includes a system of stairs and passageways that enables the crew to operate in total discretion without having to pass through the salon or other guest spaces.
Absolute’s yachts will be moored at One Herald Plaza – stand HP B33.
