Project: Absolute 40 Fly

Absolute presents its 40 Fly project, what will be the third model in the new flybridge range from the Italian builder.  This project set to launch for the fall of this year follows on the exterior design schemes as present by the other two; 43 and 50 Fly models launched in the end of 2010.  As is usual to Absolute the 40 Fly is a modern looking flybridge cruiser with large view windows featured both in the main and lower cabin decks.  The 40 Fly offers a two cabin layout accommodation with what looks on plan rather spacious for this size personal shower heads.  Owners stateroom is to be located to fore, and the guest cabin with two single berths which can transform to a double is to mid ship using full beam and in a layout usually found on a sport cruiser of this size.  Between the two cabins is to be found the L-shaped galley.  The flybridge is a spacious place of the 40 Fly, and has a sunbathing area in the forward part, and settee which can seat six people.  Interesting is also the six door part patio door which joins easily the external aft deck with the internal saloon.  Power will be from Volvo engines with a choice of stern drive or IPS pods.  Interesting statistic for the 40 Fly is that it is the tenth out of eleven models in the Absolute fleet which will use the Volvo IPS propulsion. Since 2006 Absolute has shown huge following to Volvo's IPS pod propulsion being the major production builder in model terms using it.
