Design 2034 - Nefertiti

We have designed three boats for this client, two which have been built. She is a small ship. The client comes from a family business involved in shipping. Nefertiti was built by the Astilleras y Talleras Celaya Shipyard of Bilboa, Spain. She was launched in 1973.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

The boat has had two changes in ownership and now operates as a charter vessel, named Absinthe. Modern amenities have been added over the years and include a helicopter deck over the aft deck. Here's her current profile.

  1. She is now called Voyager and has not been for charter since 2008 but operated as a private family ship. She is now based in Monaco. We would like to get in contact with anyone who would be able to contribute to its history and are happy to pay for anything relevant as we are in preparation for a book on this wonderful ship. Please get in touch with the captain Turgut Varisli on Thank you.
