Project: Absolute 55 Fly

Absolute presents the project for a 55 Fly model, which continues the modern attitude of the cruisers and yachts presented by this North Italian builder.  With the 55 Fly, Absolute will use a layout where the lower deck is fully dedicated to the sleeping area, here featuring three double cabins and two shower heads; one of which en-suite for the full beam midships owners cabin.  Interesting is also the concept of the aft deck with a sports vocation, featuring a sun pad for three persons to aft, and U-shaped settee.  Inside will also be an astern galley located to port side in the entrance to the saloon, with a settee opposite.  This galley will also surprise for its spaciousness and the home size of its appliances see the 250 liters of the fridge freezer.  The helm continues Absolute research into window innovation with a side door which allows direct access to wide walk way.  Absolute will also present a 55 STY, hard top sport yacht version which will feature sleeker lines and an opening hardtop in lieu of the spacious flybridge. The 55 Fly will have Volvo IPS pod drives propulsion, used or available on all Absolute models minus the 40 STC.
