Project: Absolute 43 Fly

Absolute continue to upgrade its line of boats and follows the ongoing success of the open first and hardtop today sport cruiser and yacht models by putting its focus on the new motor cruiser yacht flybridge line up. The company has already shown project renderings for a 50 Fly a couple of weeks ago, and now presents the second of the flybridges which will be the 43 Fly. What will surprise on the 43 Fly is the amount of space the project team managed to create on a boat just measuring over thirteen metres overall, with sleeping berths for six guests, and two en-suited heads. The layout and plan of the accommodation below of the 43 Fly can in numbers compete with that of the bigger new 50 Fly set to launch also in the fall of this year. The 43 Fly can also be accessorized with optionals that make life on board easier like a high low hydraulic bathing platform aft, and a rigid hard top over the flybridge. Power for the 43 Fly will be from a twin Volvo IPS500 or optional 600 choice. Again Absolute uses the Volvo pods to power another model which with the 43 and 50 Fly will power nine out of ten Absolute models. A big faith from the Italian boat builder to the Swedish engine and propulsion manufacturer.
