Absolute S.p.A. continues its development and overcomes itself to the point to deal with no awe with shipyard existing for a long time in the nautical market. Innovation, dynamism and the constancy of this Italian shipyard have allowed the creation of a luxurious and high quality range of boats, which has thirteen models.
In July 2012, the shipyard presented its new creation: this is a flybridge boat over 70 feet. The project is entirely original: although previous experience is always the seed from which sprout new ideas, the 72 feet is built with hull, deck, superstructure and interior totally new.
Building on the success of the Absolute 70 STY, the company of Piacenza city, entered a new universe, with the determination of becoming internationally prominent. The new flagship Absolute 72 FLY pays tribute to the quality and elegance of the Made in Italy, and presents itself as the new benchmark for the entire category.
With the launch of the 72 feet, Absolute not only expands the fly range: with this project, entirely result of the Absolute D&R Lab, Absolute strengthens its ongoing process of renewal as nautical shipyard more active and innovative in the entire international scene.
On the basis of this project, there are two key figures of the nautical market.
Angelo Gobbi, big name in the boating industry, who has dedicated his life to imagine, develop and believe in a product that proves to be more and more fascinating. And Sergio Maggi, Absolute Designer, creator of the Absolute “Diamond Spearhead” design, with his high professional team.
More than ever, the Absolute 72Fly is characterized by the true spirit of innovation. The boat has an extraordinary transparency and a nice balance in infrastructure.
The technological and stylistic creative originality of the Absolute 72FLY was recognized and celebrated by the two “Best Boat of the Year” prizes assigned for Innovation and Best Lay-out: at the presence of the most important yacht designers and builders, gathered in a prestigious evening on the “Croisette”, for the third time in succession, Absolute has seen its most typical values being recognized, i.e. the great care of interiors’ design and the fulfillment of original ideas at all levels. The two prizes have certainly been an appreciated surprise, but they do not get isolated: already in 2010 the Absolute 70STY and in 2011 the Absolute 53STY were recognized as the “Best boat of the Year” in the related categories.
Its line has a refined and aggressive personality that stands out from competitors because of its unprecedented sportsmanship that can turn heads with its prominence.
