New Model: Absolute 52 Fly

It's been an interesting development curve at Absolute and what it did in between the fifty to sixty feet in it's flybridge range.  Just a reminder Absolute debuted in this category with a 50 Fly back in 2010, a model which was developed in a 53, 55 and now a 56.  Unlike the other models the Absolute 52 Fly is a new hull with a slimmer beam to the models mentioned above.  The new Absolute 52 Fly captures itself for its perfect layout of space; nice flybridge plan up top, aft deck with sun-pad, astern galley, and three large cabins below including a full beam owners cabin.  Other interesting features is the very open feel of the saloon thanks to the large view windows, an Absolute feature since a few years now.  Power for the 52 Fly is twin Volvo 435hp engines and IPS pods, nowadays propelling all the Absolute line which is a record in its own right.  Absolute is estimating light load top speeds of 32 knots, with a 26 cruise.
