Absolute 62 Fly review: Impeccably Italian

The new Absolute 62 Fly is an attractive yacht putting all the accent on comfortable living, with design that will not go unnoticed in any port

During the last Croatia Boat Show in Split we have had the opportunity to test the new Absolute 62 Fly. The brand new unit with no more than a hundred miles on the odometer proved to be a true joy even with 8 knots of morning northern wind. The new 62 Fly is an attractive yacht whose classically designed hull will delight you even before you find out how comfortable it is.

Absolute 62 Fly exterior

Absolute surrounded the vessel with glass, but skillfully and with grace, and gave her a beautifully designed fly that fits well into her streamlined profile. Immediately after stepping aboard, we were delighted with her innovative submersible aft platform, a new feature debuting on the 62: when lowered, the platform automatically deploys a ladder, for maximum safety at boarding.

Harmony of engineering, style and comfort guarantee an absolutely delectable sailing experience

The engine room is accessible from the port side, as is a crew cabin generous in size and abundantly lit by natural light, comfortable enough to serve as an additional guest cabin. Starboard, there are stairs leading to the simple cockpit: large dining table aft, next to it a large sunpad, and on the other side a wet bar – an interesting element hiding from view the glass panel of the cockpit door, connecting the indoor galley with the cockpit. As is the case on all recent Absolute models, the galley can be completely separated from the salon by simply pulling up a matte glass panel, which also gives the salon more privacy.

The interior of the 62 is first and foremost functional

The comfortable L-shaped sofa is large and soft, and placed ideally across the LCD screen (with Dolby surround sound) that can be lowered into a hidden storage when not in use. The interior of the 62 is first and foremost functional – as is seen in many details, including the exclusive use of sliding doors on all decks – and even though the 62 Fly is not a custom model, owners can choose from several options of wood, leather and fabric to give their yacht their own unique style.

The command console is made in carbon fiber and gives the yacht a sporty look

Absolute designed both command posts to serve as main, but we believe most skippers will prefer the one on the fly deck. The main deck command post is well connected to the bow and the aft, as dedicated sliding doors allow the skipper to quickly slide onto the deck. The exterior of the main deck enjoys classical layout, especially on the bow, where a mini-salon with a sunbed and a sofa is perfectly placed to allow the skipper perfect visibility.

Absolute 62 Fly fuel consumption

The command console is made in carbon fiber and gives the yacht a sporty look – a perfectly reasonable choice for a yacht that reaches planning speed of 32 knots in mere 20 seconds. The lower deck is divided into two cabins both large and comfortable enough to be considered master cabins, and one guest cabin. The true master cabin is the one placed in the very heart of the lower deck, stretching across the entire width of the hull, but both larger cabins are equally stylish and have plenty of storage space and large round portholes.

Polished ebony wood gives a certain touch of luxury to the interior, particularly in the cabins

The fly of the new Absolute is among the largest in her class, with plenty of space for whatever you feel like doing – laying around in the sun, creating delicious meals in the outdoor galley, or enjoying it protected from the sun by a soft top. Like all the other recent models of the Italian builder, Absolute 62 Fly is powered by an IPS, as Absolute was among the first builders to realize the many advantages of the Volvo-made system. In this case, the IPS 950 D11 allows the yacht to reach 32 knots of speed with 1450 HP engines, at 2500 rpm.

Easy to pilot and maneuverable at any speed and in any weather conditions, Absolute 62 Fly is unfazed by side wind or waves, and the engines work with the hull in perfect harmony. Economical with fuel, the newest Absolute only needs 200 liters to maintain 24 knots, proving once again that Absolute is the absolute master of creating a harmony of engineering, style, comfort, financial prudence and green sailing. What an absolute joy!
