Project: Absolute 50 Fly

Italian Absolute continue its New Wave thinking and surprise its competitors and clients by presenting a flybridge motor yacht project with the 50 Fly. This new model will also be the initiative of a new Fly line from Absolute, so expect more to come from the North Italian builder and be assured that after this one is launched during the coming fall, it will soon be followed by a full line of flybridge boats in a couple of years. The interior layout is for a living on the main deck with galley, saloon, and three double cabins below. The layout is surprising for the fact that the owners suite is to fore. I am sure that seeing the big view windows to midship you would have thought otherwise. A VIP stateroom, the double cabin to midship, and a guest head complete the lower deck layout. Absolute is also thinking for extra comfort in its first motor yacht by offering a hard top on the flybridge, crew cabin, and a hydraulic up and down platform as standard. As expected from Absolute the 50 Fly will be powered by Volvo IPS600 in a standard twin version, or a more performing triple engine choice. The North Italian Absolute has huge experience with the use of Volvo IPS pods, being one of the early users and the first to put a triple engine set up on its 56. Today IPS pods drive seven out of eight in its current line up, all this being well promising for the performance of this flybridge motor yacht project.
