Introducing Brand new Yacht model Absolute Navetta 68






At the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, Absolute, the Italian yacht-builder, plans to hold the global premieres of the Absolute Navetta 68 and the Absolute 47 Fly. It will also host the floating debut of the Absolute 62 Fly, which launched at Boot Düsseldorf in January.

Navetta 68 – New Model
Another important member recently joined the family of ABSOLUTE YACHTS. This highly anticipated model, the NAVETTA 68, goes to fill the gap between the best-seller NAVETTA 58 and the current flagship NAVETTA 73.


This prodigy of design and technology offers four guest cabins and two separate crew cabins; the interior finishes are the best with LIGHT and the SPACE featuring significantly in the design. The master cabin, as for the older sister 73 has been cleverly positioned to ensure the owner is provided with exceptional comfort!


The cruising speed of over 20 knots is guaranteed by the very popular 2 Volvo Penta IPS 1,200 D13 engines (900hp) providing very low consumption, noise and vibration with excellent manoeuvring.


The launch of the first unit is scheduled for the summer of 2019


During a recent sea trial, we tested the speed and manoeuvrability, as well as check for vibrations and observe other systems that can only be tested in the water.

While still at the marina we get on board and see and touch everything. Wiggle the grab rails to see the solid build of the yacht. Sit in the pedestal seats to see if they’re comfortable. Appreciate the luxurious leather on the seat. Open the storage compartments to be sure the hinges are solid.

For the sea trial, the engines will be cold when you fire it up for the first time. If the engine’s rotating assembly is going to make any funny noises, it will be when it’s cold.  The starter engages smoothly and quietly. The engines did not rattle when started.

When you advance the throttle, we notice how easy it is for the boat to get on plane. Once up and cruising, take it to top speed. The boat is able to hold that speed with no trouble. We are satisfied with the result and bring it back down to cruising speed, usually 2,200 rpm. On average we recorded 22.2 Kts at 2,200 rpm in several tests. At that speed, we take the boat into right and left turns. The boat holds its line without hooking or washing out. While doing we listen for cautionary squeaks and rattles. There are none.

The Navetta 68 is well-designed, and perform well during our sea trial.
