New Model: Absolute 55 Fly

The Absolute 55 Fly is a further evolution of the 50 its first flybridge yacht launched in 2010, which became also available as 53 model at 2011. But to say this is actually so, you are taking away the good job the designers at the Italian company called Research Lab manage to make.  It is an amazing feat and shows huge market Intel from Absolute which makes the 55 Fly as one of the most interesting flybridge motor yachts available in the sixteen meters size today.  The Absolute 55 Fly actually takes only whats below the waterline from the its predecessors, whats above is completely new and fresh.  There are a lot of things to like in the Absolute 55 Fly from the astern galley, to the twin dinette very rare with the kitchen to aft, an aft deck with sunpad which looks like coming from a sports yacht, side door by the helm station to starboard, and three large cabins below of which a full beam owners stateroom. Power comes from a four different choice of Volvo engines one of which is a triple units, with Absolute continuing its huge support to the IPS pods now available on all the sixteen models of the Italian builder.
