Project: Absolute 64 Fly

Absolute present the project of the 64 Fly, an interesting follow up to its new 72 flagship presented past Summer 2012.  In this latest project the North Italian builder follows a lot of the themes it has shown in recent years from modern lines with large window surfaces especially noted on the main deck, and IPS pod drives for the propulsion.  Worth to note that IPS are currently used on all Absolute to a total of sixteen models.  Apart being among the first users of Volvo's IPS pods Absolute did distinct itself to a huge following for the drives. The Absolute 64 Fly will feature a four double cabin lower deck; some notes here are the full beam owners stateroom to midships, and a bunk berths fourth cabin.  A crew cabin is located aft.  The main deck of the Absolute 64 Fly will feature a single level flush deck minus for the pilot station area which is raised by one step. So far the galley seems to be located centrally and not astern as the new well praised 55 model.  Power is twin Volvo 800 or optional 900hp units, and as stated both choices come only with the IPS pod propulsion.
