Differences between the Absolute Navetta and Absolute Fly

Absolute Yachts is well-known in the yachting industry for its distinct Italian style, craftsmanship, and dedication to functionality and comfort.

Over the years, Absolute has consistently gone the extra mile, beginning with relentless communication with yacht owners to truly understand what buyers want in a luxury yacht and ending with completing each yacht through its award-winning ISS manufacturing process at the Podenzano, Italy, shipyard. Absolute produces two yacht lines: The Flybridge and the Navetta. The Fly series starts with a 47-foot model and goes as big as 72 feet. Similarly, the Navetta series goes from 48 feet to 73 feet. Both share similarities and represent everything Absolute brings to the yachting industry.

While you can’t go wrong with either option, some differences are worth considering. These differences will typically revolve around personal preference more than anything else. Let’s explore the differences between the Absolute Fly and the Absolute Navetta series.

We begin with the general emphasis of each yacht line. While both the Fly and Navetta series offer the function, design, and performance to satisfy all your yachting needs, each line caters to a specific owner preference.

The Absolute Navetta series is designed to be a long-range luxury cruiser, a yacht emphasising comfort and living space at every turn. While the Absolute Fly series exhibits excellent liveability, it certainly caters to an owner seeking a sleeker and sportier design and a bit more speed in his or her yacht. Upon viewing the exterior of the Navetta and the Fly series, one immediately notices these yachts’ bold, Absolute design. The Navetta line features the vertical “axe” bow style to maximise interior volume. Another critical distinction you’ll notice between the Fly and Navetta series is the vertical windshield, a signature feature of the Navetta line. 

While your first inclination might be to prefer the sleeker windshield design of the Absolute Fly, many minds are changed when they man the hull of the Navetta and appreciate the incredible visibility enabled by this design. The Absolute Navetta line is known for its large hillside and saloon windows, which make the large interior spaces feel even more significant as they pull in plenty of natural light. While the Navetta series emphasises interior liveability more than other yachts, Absolute also pulls many of these features into the Fly series. Enter the saloon of an Absolute Fly yacht, and you’ll notice the connection you feel with the water due to the large windows.

While both the Navetta and the Fly series offer large, well-appointed flybridge spaces, the flybridge on the Navetta is something to behold if entertaining guests across multiple social zones is a priority. The new Navetta models offer a flybridge experience that lacks nothing. With a sunroof built into the hardtop and a retractable sunshade aft, guests’ preferences, whether sunbathing or cooling off in the shade, are always accommodated. The Navetta and Fly offer side decks that are easy to navigate and well-appointed with bow seating and lounging. Both series also offer guests swim platforms that enable straightforward enjoyment of the water.

Whether attracted by the luxurious long-range cruising enabled by the Navetta series or the sleek combination of luxury and performance provided by the Fly series, buyers will love the attention to detail inside and out of all Absolute yachts. Perhaps no yacht manufacturer is more comfortable with their place in the yacht industry. With an embrace of authentic Italian design, along with function and practical considerations typically found in a yacht, it’s no wonder why Absolute maintains an essential place in the yacht industry year after year—deciding between an Absolute Fly or Absolute Navetta model.
