Owning a yacht is a statement of personal achievement, however owning the right luxury yacht creates opportunity and freedom. The new Absolute 50 Flybridge opens a world of possibilities from far away adventures to true relaxation in total comfort. Absolute Yachts has an unapologetic passion for designing boats that bring the warmth of home to the uncertainty and adventure of the ocean. A true paradox of Italian style and the open environment. The 50 Fly is easily managed by a couple, providing privacy during your free time, whether it be alone with your spouse or cruising with close friends. There is a reason this model is called 'The Absolute Achievement', and it begins with you.
Absolute Yachts has taken extreme care in the design of the exterior of the 50 Flybridge to look sleek and powerful. It's often said that Absolute builds their yachts from the 'inside out', meaning they begin their design process from the interior where maximum enjoyment is the end goal. At first glance, the amount of windows and their extraordinary size for this category of yacht, is very apparent. This differs from the sexy, aggressive curves and rake of a Viking Yacht, but conversely offers exceptional livability and enjoyment throughout the interior spaces.
The foredeck lounge is the ultimate private island for sunbathing and enjoying the outdoors. Wide, teak walkways make it easy to maneuver from the cockpit to the bow and the extra-large sunpads with adjustable backs make a delightful place for a nap. An additional couch with drink holders and speakers create a unique space for socializing. The side access door from the inside helm allows the captain to easily join the group.
The flybridge offers maximum space with everything you and your guests need for an incredible experience. Farthest aft is a comfortable al fresco dining area for morning coffee with a view or a romantic dinner under the stars. A BBQ grill, fridge, sink, and icemaker are integrated into the wetbar area. The upper helm station offers the owner complete control from a great vantage point and 360-degree views. Forward of the helm station is a large sunpad.

The aft cockpit is wide, spacious, and a fantastic area for lunch. Swimmers and divers can easily return on to the hydraulic swim platform, shower off, and join the group for lunch at the cockpit dining table. A convenient sunshade can be lowered to block the afternoon sun should it become too much. The transom also has a large storage space suitable for diving equipment and other water toys. This space can be turned into a cabin as an option. A summer kitchen with BBQ grill and sink can also be added.

Stepping into the interior salon is a delight for your senses. From the contrasting, inviting colors, to the fine materials used throughout, and to the extraordinary amount of light awarded from the large windows, the salon provides exceptional livability. The materials include a combination of glossy dark oak, matt light oak, and a sand oak floor with a saw cut affect for better durability. Dimmable LED lights can be controlled for the perfect ambiance.
The fully-equipped galley is placed aft making it easy to serve your guests on the aft cockpit. The galley equipment includes a sink with telescopic tap, electric stovetop, microwave oven, dishwasher (optional), and a refrigerator with column freezer.
A formal seating area and dining space are central in the salon, creating a comfortable area to rejuvenate in the climate controlled interior. For formal entertaining, an option to have an electrically-controlled glass partition can be installed to separate the galley from the salon seating area. An entertainment system, a portside television that can be electrically "hid" in a compartment, air conditioning vents integrated into the furniture, and innovative storage spaces are but a few of the interesting details in the salon.
The interior helm station offers complete control of the vessel and the ergonomic design means longer cruises are still comfortable. A starboard door at the helm opens to reveal the side walkway making mooring just that much easier.

Heading below deck is not the dark and dreary feeling you may have experienced on other yachts. Even the companionway accents exude sophistication and luxury. The lower deck accommodations feature a 3-cabin, 2-head layout with a centrally-located master stateroom. All of the same fine materials used in the main deck are also found in the lower deck cabins.
The master suite has huge windows without pillars obstructing your view, along with two opening portholes for excellent ventilation. This is truly a master suite fitting for a much larger yacht. The large double berth has plenty of space to walkaround as well as adequate cabin height. A large wardrobe with a mirrored door is spacious and there are multiple other storage opportunities. Whether going overnight or on a longer trip, the master stateroom is your bedroom away from home.
The VIP suite is located in the bow and is nearly as substantial as the master. Again, the highlight of the cabin is the amount of light and views from the large windows along with the double portholes. The third guest stateroom has two single beds side-by-side, and another wardrobe.

Absolute continues to rely on Volvo Penta propulsion for reliable performance, good fuel efficiency, decreased vibrations, and optimal results. The Absolute 50 Flybridge is outfitted with twin Volvo D-6 IPS650 engines with joystick control at both helms, as well as the aft cockpit mooring station. Owners can expect to cruise in the mid-20 knot range with WOT at about 30 knots.
