Project: Absolute 72 Fly

The Absolute wave never stops, and the Italian brand headed by Angelo Gobbi shows its next project, one of important relevance for a new flagship, the 72 Fly.  This model takes over the mantle as biggest Absolute from the 70 STY launched in 2008, going two feet larger,and expands the flybridge range as introduced in 2010, and today having four models from 40 to 53 feet.   As shown in smaller models, Absolute head of design Sergio Maggi also on the 72 Fly, concentrates on modern Italian looks using huge window surfaces to make the owner and guest having a touch feeling with the exterior environment.  Down below a four double cabins with three heads interior plan is offered.  Power will be from Volvo engines, with IPS pods propulsion, and I imagine here a twin IPS1200 with 900hp engines set up.  Absolute having among the best experience with the Volvo IPS pods being one of the first users, starting in 2006 and powering nearly all other models minus the entry level 40 SC.
