New Model: Absolute 53 STY

An impressive 2011 fall from Absolute which including this new 53 STY presented five premier models in between the Cannes and Genoa shows from forty to 53 feet.  The 53 STY, acronym used for sport yacht shares hull and many design solutions with the 2010 launched 50 and 2011 53 Fly models.  Obviously the 53 STY is a hard top sport yacht with patio door dividing the cockpit.  Some might suspect the 53 STY should also replace the successful 52 launched in 2007, and the first Absolute to have the concept of upper saloon and patio doors dividing the area.  But so far the 52 is still in production and offered on the official web site.  Mirror difference with this new 53 STY to the 52 come instant and these are bigger engines options triple Volvo 435hp or twin 700 units, and more beam which offers more space everywhere.  Obviously the 53 STY is a complete new model versus the 52.  Below is also a choice for two layouts; three cabins sleeping six and owners room to fore, or two rooms which gives a spacious midships full beam master  room and VIP to fore.  In both the layouts the galley is below between the cabins, leaving main deck area all for entertainment.  IPS propulsion is again used in the 53 STY, which makes Absolute the most eager user of Volvo propulsion system available on thirteen from fourteen models.
