With a wide stern platform, an open and airy aft deck, and cozy, modern salon furnishings, Absolute’s new 52 Flybridge perfectly blends indoor and outdoor environments, complete with ample gathering places and panoramic views.

The cockpit terrace, with an overhanging flybridge deck to provide partial covering, is a large and flexible space with room for up to three sofas around an expandable table. The interior salon opens out to the cockpit, providing easy movement from the aft galley to the social outdoor area. The main deck keeps stairs to a minimum, allowing for maximum headroom for up to 14 people. Wide walkaround decks give guests easy access to the foredeck sunbed, which includes a built-in padded bench and central table.

Accessed via a three-leaf sliding door from the aft deck, the salon includes modular, Italian-designed furniture that can be fitted with a range of luxurious upholstery materials. The space is illuminated naturally via enormous windows with 360-degree views. Electrically controlled vertically sliding windowsalso ensure natural ventilation throughout.

The galley, located aft to port, features a host of the latest equipment for preparing gourmet meals, along with a spacious pantry. Forward of the galley is a C-shaped settee for dining, opposite a cushioned sofa to starboard. The helm station is equipped with two captain’s chairs, a full suite of navigational tools, and large multifunction displays that provide fingertip control of all onboard systems.

Up top, the flybridge, accessed by stairs from the cockpit, includes more spaces for entertainment, including another settee, a dining table, an aft bar unit with a refrigerator, two side chairs, and a second sunpad starboard of the flybridge helm. The hardtop also has space for optional solar panels that can power most of the boat’s non-propulsion functions.

A curved staircase from the main deck leads to the accommodations belowdecks, featuring a full-beam master cabin at the bow with a double bed that has access from three sides and more wide windows to flood the deck with light. The en suite master head includes vanity units and Italian marble countertops. The midships suite is similar in size to the master and includes a double berth, plus access to the day head and shower, which is shared by the third guest cabin. The guest cabin also has an electrical system to convert the standard twin single berths into a double bed. A crew cabin and separate head is located aft, with practical access to the engine room and stern platform.

Powered by twin Volvo Penta D8-IPS800s, the Absolute 52 cruises at about 26 knots and has a top speed of 30 knots.
