Navetta 64 wins again

Absolute Yachts’ Navetta 64 won first place in her category, ‘Up to 20 m’, during the 16th edition of the European Powerboat Awards 2021.

The jury opted for the Absolute Navetta 64 because "she embodies the perfect combination of flybridge powerboat and explorer [... and] provides plenty of space both in her interior and on deck. Large window frontages, as well as the innovative execution of the stern cabin with direct access to the swim platform, convey a unique sense of lifestyle on the water."Beach Club

The international jury was comprised of journalists and editors-in-chief from the leading European motorboat-magazines: Båtmagasinet (Norway), BoatMag (Italy), BOOTE (Germany), Motorboot (Netherlands), MoteurBoat (France), Nautica y Yates (Spain), Neptune (France), Marina CH (Switzerland), and Yachtrevue (Austria), representing more than a million readers monthly across Europe and beyond.

A qualified jury and the prestige of competing brands make the European Powerboat Award among the most important awards worldwide.

Among the evaluation criteria, parameters such as workmanship, safety, driving behavior, design, space distribution, and price-performance ratio play a fundamental role during the nomination and voting process.

One of the most appreciated new features of the Navetta 64 was the transom, which becomes a beach club by day and an on-water VIP double cabin by night.

Navetta 64 'Best for Travel'

The Absolute Navetta 64, appropriately known as “The Absolute Pathfinder”, has won the Best for Travel Award at the prestigious Best of Boats 2020 Awards in Berlin on November 19.

The awards, which were founded in 2014, are designed to identify the best motoryachts of the year. They are competed for in five categories: Best for Beginners, Best for Family, Best for Fun, Best for Fishing and Best for Travel and are judged by 18 highly respected and experienced international marine journalists from top publishing houses.

In announcing the Absolute Navetta 64 as the 2020 winner of the Best of Boats: Best for Travel Award, the judges were full of praise for its unique design:

"It’s one of the biggest 60-footers ever seen. Actually, it is 64’5”, so the space on board is enormous, open and bright. Adding to the incredible master cabin the new Navetta has a beach club on the aft. It’s something special."

The Navetta 64 features, which is distributed in New Zealand by Yachtfinders Global, features a pair of powerful yet economical Volvo D13 diesels married to IPS1350 drives.
