Project: Absolute 53 STY

Absolute has decided to make 2011 one of its most prolific years, and after presenting two new projects with the 40 model in Fly and STY versions, follows it with the 53 STY.  This model is in my understanding a replacement of the 2007 launched 52, although Absolute has so far not confirmed this.  The 53 STY is based on the hull and lines of the 2010 launched 50 Fly model, and continues this young, prolific and successful Italian builder faith in Volvo IPS pod propulsion.  A system which powers all of its model minus the entry level 40 STC. The 53 STY which mean Sport Yacht, is a three cabin boat which can be fully open, or enclosed with patio doors and sunroof making it a boat for all seasons. Cozy in Winter, open for air in Summer.  The living of the 53 STY minus the galley is located on the main deck, with the exterior also featuring an aft sun pad, and C-shaped dinette.  Down below is three guest cabins, galley, and a crew cabin to aft.  Owners stateroom is to fore, with a VIP cabin located to starboard side with a private entrance to the guests head.  Power is a choice to twin or triple Volvo 435hp engines.
