This balanced yacht with utmost harmony among all details and painstakingly designed spaces is a new generation Navetta, boasting every single new solution Absolute have developed for the range
The new Absolute Navetta 75 is the largest yacht in the range of her famous Italian builder, whose fame is based on the very range – the Navetta series that came to life ten years ago, with the 58-foot model. The new and largest Navetta is the pride of the Absolute fleet, carrying special significance, so the builder outdid themselves to make her shine, paying attention to the tiniest details.
Absolute Navetta 75 Evolution
This evolution of the hugely successful Navetta 73, boasts many of the features of latest Absolute boats. This model of impeccable design and style, offers plenty of living space, both on deck and in the luxurious interior. Above all, the newest navetta models excellent performance – even though it isn’t considered a high-performance yacht, the model delighted is during our sea trial in Cannes, with over 20 knots of westerly wind.
We cruised around the bay with ease and got a glimpse into the soul of this new yacht. The latest navetta inherited the new-concept cockpit from the previous model, with a glass window that allows unobstructed views of the sea. In the cockpit, free-standing modular furniture by Terra Forma (as on the upper deck) can be moved around and rearranged as desired, leaving the possibility of freeing up space for partying.
The cockpit has a cabinet on the right side. Symmetrical stairs lead to the aft platform on both sides of the cockpit, and the platform is submersible, with plenty of space for water toys. From the platform, crew area is accessible. The crew area is customizable, and very useful to private owners.
From the cockpit, we entered the main deck salon, with an L-shaped sofa and a comfortable armchair, next to a full-size dining room with unobstructed views of the sea from the left side. Another pleasant surprise, the salon is connected to the surrounding space by large glazed surfaces and a fine, almost invisible deck railing.
Forward on the main deck, the galley boasts Miele appliances, and is served by a dedicated exit to the deck on the port side, as well as its mirrored twin starboard. The galley can enclosed or open. The wheelhouse enjoys a slightly elevated position and equipped with Garmin screens that allow control over all systems.
In the bow, as we were delighted to see, is a traditional master cabin, enjoying perfect privacy. Below deck, there are three more cabins, accessible from the salon by dedicated stairs on the right side. The aft cabin is a full-width VIP, identical to the master. There is another twin cabin, sharing the bathroom with the salon, and a comfortable double cabin with access to the storage space in the bow, large enough for plenty of provisions.
Grace is a modern 28 m motor yacht built in 2013 by Aegean Yachts and started her first charter season in 2018.
In the unpleasant weather in the bay of Cannes, the new Navetta 75 charmed us with her interesting navigation modes. The highest speed we recorded was 25.7 knots, but we were impressed with how effortlessly the new Navetta reached 21 knots, with a moderate consumption of 300 liters per hour.
At 13 knots, the consumption was 130 liters, which we would consider decent for her size. We must add that during our test, there was maximum number of people aboard, and the unit we tested was equipped with Seakeeper 18. The lovely new Navetta 75 is a yacht boasting such balance and versatility that we agree with her unusual nickname, the Absolute Sphere.
