Absolute Yachts launches upgraded 50 Fly among new 2021 models


The Italian builder is already conducting sea trials on the new-look 50 Fly, one of its new models along with the Navetta 64.


The new Absolute 50 Fly features reduced ‘swords’ across the main-deck glazing

Absolute has launched its 50 Fly – Generation 2021, whose new features include improved views due to the reduction of the horizontal ‘swords’ on the main-deck glazing and removal of the vertical pillars on the cabin windows. Other changes include lowered gunwales along the side decks, an upgraded hardtop with openable hatch, a modern entertainment system and many interior upgrades.

The Italian shipyard describes the flybridge as being among the largest in the 50ft range and it includes an aft C-shaped sofa and a dining table for up to eight people. To starboard is a full galley with fridge, sink, telescopic tap and optional barbecue and icemaker, as well as a twin-seat helm station. To port is a forward-facing corner sofa connected to a full-beam sunbathing area forward.

The aft galley can be separated from the saloon by a sliding glass screen

The foredeck is another outdoor area and features a sofa and a triple sunpad, while the aft cockpit has an aft-facing sunpad connected to a sofa and dining table, plus a new optional privacy sunshade that can retract into the ceiling.

Inside, the open L-shaped galley to port is well equipped and can be visually separated from the forward saloon by an electric sliding glass screen.

The raised saloon features a large C-shaped sofa to port and a two-seat sofa to starboard

The saloon is up a step and features a large C-shaped sofa and a table to port, while to starboard is a two-seat sofa and the helm station, which benefits from a new side door.

The furniture has been redesigned to offer new stowage spaces and comfortable support surfaces, while new materials include a combination of glossy dark oak and matt light oak, plus a sand oak floor with saw-cut effect for greater durability.

Absolute’s dealers in Asia include Hong Kong-based Absolute Marine.

The full-beam master cabin midships enjoys clear views through large windows

On the lower deck, the full-beam master cabin midships benefits from clear views through pillarless windows either side and features roomy cabinets, many stowage spaces and an en-suite bathroom accessed through a new sliding door.

The full-beam forward VIP cabin also has new sliding-door access to a bathroom that also serves as the day head and bathroom for the twin guest cabin to starboard, which has a walk-in closet. There’s also a crew cabin aft that can also be used for an extra guest.
