The Absolute 55 STY is a 54-foot coupe-style express cruiser yacht that was produced by the award-winning Italian yacht-building firm Absolute between 2012 and 2013. A sharp profile, sleek lines, stylish lounge spaces and sporty performance combine to make this one of the most popular vessels of its class ever built. The ideal yacht for summer coastal cruising with the whole family, this elegant and luxurious vessel stands ahead of its peers thanks to the sort of hand-crafted attention to detail that can only come from the in-house team at the Absolute facility in Podenzano, Italy.

A quadruple-width sunpad with headrests out on the foredeck provides the ideal spot for at-sea sunbathing, with stainless-steel grabrails for safety, while generously proportioned side decks lead back to a teak-lined cockpit to stern. Sitting under a partially glazed awning, the cockpit features a hook-shaped transom sofa in waterproof leatherette or beige upholstery that surrounds an extending dining table, while there is also space out here for an optional wet-bar station. The sofa connects to a triple-width elevated sunpad with views out to stern that sits above an adaptable transom space that can be used as storage or as a crew quarters. Side steps back here lead down to a full-beam hydraulic bathing platform from where you can dangle your feet in the water, set off on swimming trips or simply use to lift a Yamaha water tender or equivalent.
Sliding glass doors lead guests into a well-appointed aft-galley with striped oak cabinets, marble-effect Corian work surfaces, a two-zone induction hob, a Siemens combination oven, a stainless-steel sink, secure cabinets and a full-height fridge-freezer tower. Across from this sits a U-shaped leather sofa and a large timber dining table, while a few steps forward lead you to a spacious salon with another U-shaped sofa, a loveseat and a bespoke coffee table. This room has an abundance of natural light thanks to panoramic side windows and a mullioned, above helm sunroof, while recessed lighting generates an atmospheric mood at night. A starboard side helm station, meanwhile, impresses with Raymarine multi-function display screens, thruster controls, VHF radio, a Penta joystick, trim tabs and chrome-lined analogue instrumentation.
A three-stateroom and two-head layout on the lower-deck leaves plenty of space for guests to unwind. A starboard twin berth with a side locker sits adjacent to a VIP double stateroom with a pair of closets, reverse-angled mullions, a skylight, an island bed, hidden storage and a large en-suite. The full-beam owner’s stateroom sits amidship and features booth-style seats, a pop-up vanity station, a double island bed, pale oak cabinets, triple mullions and a timber and marble-lined bathroom with a shower room lined in non-slip teak.
The Absolute 55 STY zips across the water at top speeds of up to 42 knots thanks to triple 435MHP Volvo Penta D6-IPS600 pod-drive diesel engines. Cruising speeds of around 33 knots allow for a range of well over 300 nautical miles, proof positive that this yacht finds the sweet spot between raw speed and long-distance stamina.
