Düsseldorf Boot proved to be full of surprises. This tease is simply the most cruel of all. Absolute is showing as little as possible of the new Navetta 64 Beach Club set to debut later this year at Cannes.
Maritimo has been ahead of the curve with their X series, and Fairline has just introduced the Targa 58, and Prestige is bringing their X70 to market soon. The new Absolute Navetta 64 Beach Club, however, has to be the best mash-up of features you would want in a boat.
The new lines of the boat are staggeringly stunning. In one fell swoop the 68 Navetta looks dated. And while the 52 and 58 2020 models have new hardtops and very well reimagined salons – there is simply no comparison.
The beach club mirrors the design of the Ocean Alexander 90 Revolution. There are two significant differences, however. 1) It is 26 feet shorter making it owner/operator capable. 2) I’m guessing it’s over $5MM cheaper.
The profile takes the Navetta takes the design about four design generations into the future. The open bulwarks offer safety yet an open view. The winglets topside lack function but simple mirror the lower rails and just look right.
One other thing Absolute is getting right with the Navetta are the hull side windows – The new Navetta 68 and 47 Fly, and now the Navetta 64 Beach Club – the best of them all!
The beach club swim platform easily accommodates deck furniture, while the stern opens to reveal a cozy viewing lounge that converts into a full en suite stateroom.
The salon is more of a living room like the 68 with a raised pilot house, the new triple screen pod displays, and familiar door to the side deck. Power is Volvo IPS 1200 or 1350 engines.
There’s not enough information about the rest of the boat. What I can say for sure is that Absolute most likely has more orders than they will be ready to handle already. Cannes anyone?
NOTE: Our views on the Fairline Targa 58 are to follow. See my thoughts on the Prestige X70 and Maritimo X50 in other articles. Both will be at Cannes. Who knew it would be so hard to spend millions of dollars?
