New Model: Absolute 40 STL

Absolute's 40 STL presents a new chapter for the North Italian boat builder who presents a large open cruiser with a nice comfortable interior, and a walk around style deck space.  When the rendering was presented and looking into some Italian forums many boaters said they did not enjoy much this new Absolute 40 Sport Line, but personally I see it as a nice offer for those looking for a day cruiser with capability of to making a cruise.  The deck space of the 40 STL presents itself as a center console with both the side decks, to port and starboard allowing free undisturbed passageway from the bathing platform to the fore tip.  The accommodation plan here resides in the middle with a central sun pad, C-shaped settee, wet bar, and a two seat helm station.  Below is an accommodation plan sleeping a total of four with the layout consisting of a convertible Vee shaped dinette to fore, shower head, galley, and a full beam separate owners cabin to midships.  Power is twin Volvo engines; diesel 300 or 330hp, and petrol gasoline 270 and 320hp units.
