New Model: Absolute 56 STY

Absolute continues to fine tune its models in the 50 series.  The new 56 STY is a further evolution of what was born in 2009 as a 50 Fly, then developed into a 53, a 55, and now this latest model. The 55 presented in 2012 has an amazing layout for its size. Three spacious cabins below deck including full beam owners room, astern galley, aft deck with L-shaped settee sun-pad, and last a two saloon sofa one for dining opposite of the galley and a lounging to fore.  So what does the 56 improves in this? Absolute redesigned the astern galley now featuring a more open format, also increased moving space in the aft deck by adjoining the sun-pad with the convertible settee, and also changed the two single armchairs with table to one large sofa in the owners midships cabin.
