Luxurious and comfortable in both her exterior and interior areas, the recent Absolute 62 Fly boasts attractive lines and excellent manoeuvrability.
A FEATHER IN THE CAP of the Italian boat-building community, Absolute Yachts has, since its inception in the early 2000s, succeeded in acquiring an international reputation for innovative attitude, and attention to construction, engineering and for reliability. This approach runs through the bloodstreams of the father-and-daughter management duo of Patrizia and Angelo Gobbi (former owner and founder of the Gobbi brand) who have shown the yachting world that competence and commitment are keys to success. The Gobbis, who joined Absolute Yachts’ founders Marcello Bè and Sergio Maggi as shareholders, bring an invaluable contribution to the company’s success.
Nowadays, in Absolute’s state-of-the-art facility in Podenzano, near Piacenza, in the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy, four ranges of yachts are designed and produced entirely in-house. The production includes four lines: Flybridge, Sport Line, Sport Yacht and Navetta, spanning lengths from 40 to 73 feet (approximately 12 to 22 metres). In a crowded market segment, Absolute Yachts stands out for signature yacht characteristics and value for money. Each year an average of 80 yachts leave the yard to reach the farthest corners of the world. Nine out of 10 yachts go abroad, with 40 per cent to European countries, 30 per cent to the USA, 15 per cent to the Asia-Pacific region and the rest going to Russia and the Baltic republics.
