At the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, Absolute, the Italian yacht-builder, plans to hold the global premieres of the Absolute Navetta 68 and the Absolute 47 Fly. It will also host the floating debut of the Absolute 62 Fly, which launched at Boot Düsseldorf in January.
In terms of Absolute’s model range, the Absolute 47 Fly is the brand’s new entry-level yacht, replacing the Absolute 45 but completely redesigned. The Navetta 68 is the company’s second-largest yacht after the Navetta 73, but several new design features have been included in this latest model and a number have been sold, as have the Absolute 62 Fly.
Absolute 47 Flybridge
A brand new model ABSOLUTE 47 FLY has been added to the Absolute range of yachts. Space and Light springs to mind when viewing this vessel. With 3 very spacious cabins and 2 huge bathrooms, and a living area completely flooded with light plus a kitchen near the entrance and a huge dinette that can accommodate up to 8 people.
During a recent sea trial, we tested the speed and manoeuvrability, as well as check for vibrations and observe other systems that can only be tested in the water.
While still at the marina we get on board and see and touch everything. Wiggle the grab rails to see the solid build of the yacht. Sit in the pedestal seats to see if they’re comfortable. Appreciate the luxurious leather on the seat. Open the storage compartments to be sure the hinges are solid.
For the sea trial, the engines will be cold when you fire it up for the first time. If the engine’s rotating assembly is going to make any funny noises, it will be when it’s cold. The starter engages smoothly and quietly. The engines did not rattle when started.
When you advance the throttle, we notice how easy it is for the boat to get on plane. Once up and cruising, take it to top speed. The boat is able to hold that speed with no trouble. We are satisfied with the result and bring it back down to cruising speed, usually 3,500 rpm. On average we recorded 24.7 Kts during 3,500 rpm in several tests. At that speed, we take the boat into right and left turns. The boat holds its line without hooking or washing out. While doing we listen for cautionary squeaks and rattles. There are none.
The 47 Fly is well-designed, and perform well during our sea trial.
All this is finished to the world-renowned highest standard – typical of the Italian shipyard!
Performance is top-notch with 2 Volvo Penta IPS 650’s.
