Absolute present its second in the new line of flybridge boats with the presentation of the 43 Fly in the fall of 2010.  For the smaller of its two flybridge models, the Absolute Research and Development Lab followed a similar line to that of the bigger 50 on the 43 Fly, and again used the Volvo IPS pods for propulsion.  The Absolute 43 Fly is the ninth yacht out of ten models using the 2005 presented propulsion system from Volvo.  The 43 Fly offers a three double cabins interior with owners room to fore, but a more luxury two cabin version is on the works for the near future.  In the the three cabins version the living is all located on the main deck.  Power is from twin Volvo 370 standard or 435hp optional.  With the optional choice giving a top speed of 34 knots.
