Italian boatbuilders Absolute Yachts is laying the groundwork for their future with the launch of a new 'Generation 2022' lineup. Among the 2022 models will be the all-new 60 Fly, which the company has dubbed "The Absolute Prisma."
According to the press release, the new 60 Fly was designed to "redefine the range with new ground-breaking design elements never seen on a Flybridge boat of these dimensions." Among the most notable highlights are a raised owner's quarters at the bow and a huge aft cockpit terrace.
The bow master cabin features a rare full beam design that's raised from the lower deck. With an LOA of 61'3" (18.6m) and a beam of 16'2" (4.94m) the 60 Fly devotes significant attention to maximizing interior space. Despite the cabin orientation, it still carries high ceilings and includes a walk-in wardrobe, vanity with a sea view, and large side windows to let ambient light and an impressive view reach inside.
Glazed balustrades create expansive views from both the fly and the cockpit to coincide with the ample window placements. Both the cockpit and the fly can be custom furnished to the owner's preference. The aft cockpit includes two staircases to the wide stern platform which include a large terrace just above the water. The terrace also provides an entrance to the crew cabin via a pantograph door concealed in the transom.
The Fly boasts a generously sized open-air salon with panoramic views and smartly placed appointments. Notable features include an al-fresco galley and dining area, ample lounge space, and an impressive helm station with forward-thinking tech. The flybridge also includes double piloting seats and a wideset windscreen with minimized support pillars for an unobstructed view, as well as a sofa and sundeck next to the helm for extra company.
As for the helm stations, both the flybridge and main deck include double piloting seats and a wideset windscreen with minimized support pillars for an unobstructed view. The hardtop also includes optional solar panels as a secondary power source and to minimize generator usage and emissions. Engine power comes from Volvo Penta 2xD11 IPS950 diesels with 615 US gallon (2300 litre) capacity. A third mooring station is available at the stern which can be integrated on the starboard side. The station can be equipped with a bow thruster, joystick, and engine ignition panel.
Inside the boat has three staterooms with full toilets and separated showers. Two staterooms carry king-size beds while a third cabin carries two twin-size accommodations. The crew cabin includes two bunks. The master cabin also includes a sofa, vanity console, full closet, and ample storage space.
The new 60 Fly is expected to be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2021 along with another new model in the Generation 2022 lineup, the Absolute 48 Coupe.
