NEW NAVETTA 64: LEARNING THE ROPES TO GO BEYOND THE LIMITS
Even if she is the latest born of the family, she is a Navetta, and you feel it. But she is not just a “redesigned” Navetta, the new Navetta 64 is a new boat, that has been creating once again something extraordinary.
Cesare, which are the main features of the new Navetta 64?
Some novelties, that we could consider in line with the current trends, have aimed to chromatic choices, to the line of the new side windows, inspired by the Navetta 48, to the enlargement of the bow windows and to a different windscreen’s inclination angle; these interventions may seem ordinary, but rather they represent the result of specific choices, that we take with our mind clear, as we love to do, without preconceived ideas, without setting prior technical boundaries. We choose what to do, and then we find a solution to do that.
For example, the enlargement of bow windows goes through a very challenging gluing match method between hull and deck, which is the result of our technical departments’ inventions.
Which are the strongest novelties?
The side wale in the cockpit has been opened, in contrast with what usually happens, where the wale has a minimal structural meaning. It may seem a minor feature, but in this way, we have a floor area extension of 60 cm along the entire length and when you are sit in the cockpit, you have the direct view over the sea from below the railing and not above it… great, isn’t it?
And what about the transom?
The standard version of the transom has two windows and a pantograph central door, same as on board other Absolute Navettas.
The optional version, that we have called “Beach Club”, offers a full windowed transom, with two side fixed doors and two sliding doors in the middle. The result is that we have the possibility to create a living space inside, not just a storage.
It has a bed convertible into sofa, two wardrobes, air-conditioning, stereo, tv, fridge, separate head and shower.
Considering also the finishing, it is in fact an additional VIP cabin, but with a glass window at the water’s edge.
Moreover, the door is not a simple door, because in order to properly operate in this area it should be watertight. So, it should not simply be “waterproof” but “watertight”. We have therefore developed a pneumatic gasket that is waterproof while resting: while navigating, by pressing a simple button, you can activate a compressor that inflates the gasket, which expands and watertight adheres to the metal frame … and the watertight door is served!
