Often when we recognise success we clap enthusiastically and our heart races. The new Absolute Navetta 64 manages to elicit both responses having been acknowledged as the ‘Best Innovative Model’ in the 64’-80’ category awarded at the 19th edition of World Yacht Trophies event.
Patrizia Gobbi – Absolute Yachts’ General Manager – was present on behalf of the whole Absolute team to receive the accolade, during the Gala Dinner which took place Saturday, September 12 on the beach at the Carlton International Hotel, Cannes. More than 60 boat finalists were competing for this prestigious award.
The comments from the jury which included nautical experts, marine journalists and historians commented:
“The Navetta range developed by the Italian manufacturer Absolute has been enriched by a new model with totally new features – a beach club on the platform that allows you to enjoy a great living space near the water. To ensure that this area is perfectly watertight, Absolute has developed an automatic inflatable seal system as soon as the doors are closed. Three beautiful cabins, plus one for the crew on the lower deck, benefiting from a stunning view thanks to the presence of glass. Another interesting and innovative feature the main part of the fly can be completely closed.”
General Manager Patrizia Gobbi in accepting the award commented, ‘We are very proud of this award, it is an acknowledgment that rewards the innate dedication of the shipyard when talking about innovation, research and development of new solutions. These are the contributions that we consider essential in order to uphold the ‘Made in Italy’ production – a deserved leader in this role’.
