The new 60 Flybridge from Absolute exhibits the continual evolution and innovation from the shipyard.

There is no question that Absolute Yachts has cemented itself as a leader in the production of luxury cruising yachts. The proof of this is not just in the number of models produced or units sold, but the accolades that continue to pile up internationally, year after year. Just recently Absolute won both the European Powerboat of the Year and the Best Of Boats Award for the new Navetta 64.

Builders often talk about the using the best materials, the latest construction techniques, and having the best equipment on board. So how does one set itself apart in a crowded cruising yacht market?

One of the biggest differences between Absolute Yachts and other shipyards is the fact that they are independent financially and in management. This allows for an open environment where designers are free to create unbelievable boats that continue to improve the owner's experience on the water. 

The new 60 Flybridge is a direct result in this freedom of thinking that spawns innovative ideas and visionary solutions. Absolute calls their new model 'The Absolute Prisma' and that is offers a '"new dimension of nautical living" thanks to the multitude of ways that the yacht can be used.

SI Yachts is proud to be the Absolute dealer for the Northeast and will have a 60 Fly coming into stock in the early part of 2022. For more information about availability, pricing, and open build slots, please contact our main office at 1-718-984-7676 or send us an email at Sales@SIYachts.com.

The trend in cruising yacht design has continued to focus heavily on the experience inside the yacht with larger windows, more conveniences, better layouts for socializing, and a dedication to maximizing space. The competition between builders has proven beneficial for new boat buyers that put an emphasis on time spent anchored or moored and on board with friends. While boating has always been about making memories, the 60 FLY goes even further by enhancing those areas where you spend the majority of your time.

It is impossible to look at the 60 Flybridge without noticing the massive, seemingly endless windows that line both the main and lower decks. There is no mistaking this model for anything but being an Absolute, with dynamic, captivating lines that flow from bow to the substantial swim platform.

60 Flybridge aft cockpit

The aft cockpit is revolutionary for this size boat and better resembles the aft terraces seen on much larger motor yachts. The swim platform has been extended to allow for lounge chairs and space to move around. A canopy can be set up for shade and there is hidden access to the crew quarters.

The cockpit itself was designed to be manipulated and arranged to fit your lifestyle. There are no fixed structural elements to contend with and all of the furniture is modular, meaning that seating can be arranged as you desire.

Dining al fresco has never been more inviting than on the cockpit of the 60 Flybridge. Opening the cockpit doors creates one large single deck living space from the cockpit through the salon.

Accessing the bow from the aft cockpit is easy thanks to wide side decks that allow for easy movement. This spacious area offers a wonderful seating arrangement that allows you to dine, relax, sunbathe, or socialize on the bow while at anchor or a slow cruise. The sunpads have a moveable backrest for expanding the sunbathing area or creating extra seating around the pedastal table.

As you can see from the above layout rendering, the flybridge features a variety of seating options and is spacious thanks to the innovative construction techniques that allow for a wider bridge. Farthest aft, the area is left open for the owner's choice of modular furniture that can be positioned to your liking. The glazed parapets balustrades create a see-through aft terrace that gives your guests incredible views. Mid-deck on the flybridge is a galley, dining, space, and lounge area - everything needed to live outdoors in comfort. Farthest forward you will find the ergonomically-designed helm station with companion seating and another extra-large sunpad. Owners can also choose to install solar panels on the factory hardtop.

The interior of the 60 FLY is extremely well lit and open thanks to the wide, uninterrupted windows. The cockpit and galley are easily joined with the opening of the glass aft doors. Additionally, some of the windows can be opened and a side access door near the helm can be opened to get a wonderful sea breeze throughout the interior.

As seen above in the main deck layout rendering, the salon, galley, and dining space are well laid out for socializing and ease of movement while cruising. Storage spaces are abundant on both decks. Portside, a staircase in front of the couch leads to the lower deck.

The Absolute 60 Flybridge lower deck accommodations consist of 3 spacious, well-appointed cabins, along with a crew quarters aft. There are also 3 heads on board for the owner and guests, as well as a head in the crew quarters.

The master stateroom is positioned on a mid-level and in the bow, taking full advantage of the boat's 16' 2" beam. The massive picture-sized windows port and starboard offer tremendous views and the large portholes allow in the fresh ocean air. The master suite is private, comfortable, and a wonderful place to spend resting for as many nights as you'd like to enjoy cruising. The ceilings are high, making this feel like the master of a much larger vessel. As with all Absolute models, the fabrics, woods, and appointments are of the highest quality.

The VIP suite is nearly as large as the master and features a queen-sized berth, en suite bathroom with marble countertops, and plenty of storage. The third guest cabin is equipped with two single beds and additional storage. The third guest cabin shares a bathroom that also serves as the general head on board for guests.
