The Absolute Navetta 73 is a 73-foot hybrid trawler yacht with a flybridge that was launched by the iconic Italian yacht-building company Absolute in 2017. A revolutionary new model and flagship of the firm’s Navetta range, this boat redefined what a long-distance trawler could be by combining rugged seaworthiness with the sort of space, comfort and style you would expect from a super-yacht. Vast hull windows, wrap-around glazing, cutaway gunwales, handsome curves, sun-drenched skydecks, lavish contemporary surrounds and modern design interventions abound on this sleek model, elevating typical trawler characteristic to the level of art. No wonder, then, that the Navetta 73 won the award for “Boat of the Year” in its class at the 2018 Slovenian Boat Awards, nor that it bagged the title for “Best Innovation” at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival.

A teak-lined flybridge is covered by a hard-top canopy with a sunroof and boasts a range of laid-back lounge spaces. To the rear there is room for a trio of sun-loungers, a sofa, a pair of Paola Lenti wicker armchairs and a set of Ottomans, while across the shaded middle there is an L-shaped dining sofa with a timber-clad table. To port there is a walk-in wet-bar with a frosted glass serving platform, marbled work surfaces, an ice-chipper, a BBQ grill, chilled storage and a sink. Up front there is a U-shaped sofa to starboard sitting alongside a central upper helm station with unimpeded views out towards the bow.
The flybridge has stiff competition for outdoor relaxation one level down, where a foredeck lounge with a Portuguese Bridge sofa and a four-zone sunpad offer a secluded and sunkissed space to enjoy afternoon aperitifs. The teak-lined cockpit boasts a sheltered transom sofa with a breakfast table, as well as side steps down to a full-beam hydraulic bathing platform and a watersports locker.
Folding glass doors, jaw-dropping panoramic single-pane glazing, warm oak floors, elm and walnut veneers, bronze-effect lacquer trim, curved cabinets, marble-topped tables and plush upholstered sofas define a main-deck salon that looks like it has been lifted straight out of a Manhattan penthouse. A pair of Minotti sofas and an armchair are joined by an eight-seater tinted glass dining table, with a retractable panel separating the lounge from the Euro-style galley. This minimalist and contemporary kitchen features pale cabinets, marble-effect counters, an extractor fan, a four-zone induction hob, a convection oven, a hidden fridge-freezer tower and a stainless-steel sink, while a port-side door in here allows for easy access to side-decks.
A semi-raised pilothouse boasts superb visibility, a pair of leather piloting chairs and a cocoon-style sofa. A unique Glass Cockpit helm system combines four huge Garmin digital touchscreens with a Penta joystick, EVC Volvo engine feedback, thruster controls, VHF radio, trim tabs, a leather-clad power-assisted steering wheel, a host of backlit analogue instrumentation and a Seakeeper stabilizer switch.
There are four elegant and luxurious en-suite cabins with expansive hull glazing on the lower-deck, including an amidship twin and double room that are bigger than many staterooms. To aft there is a full-beam suite with a work-desk, a full-height locker, a king-sized bed, bedside cabinets and a semi-open bathroom, while the owner’s stateroom sits by the bow. This privately accessed room features a side sofa, a work desk, a pair of hanging lockers, a walk-in dressing room, a king-sized bed, veneered surfaces, a lattice-effect wall panel and a huge, marble and timber-lined bathroom with a widescreen mirror and a sauna-style shower room.
The typical trawler yacht prioritizes stamina over speed, yet the Navetta 73 is no typical trawler. Instead, you will find a robust hull that can withstand choppy offshore conditions paired with engines that deliver both efficiency and gusto. A pair of 1000MHP Volvo Penta D13 IPS1350 pod-drive diesel engines prompt top speeds of around 26 knots and comfortable cruising clocking in at 18 knots. Should you choose to pace yourself at a speed of just 5.5 knots, not unusual for a trawler, then you can voyage for over 2,000 nautical miles without needing to refuel.
