Based in Piacenza, a town in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, roughly 150km north-east of Genoa, Absolute Yachts has been an independent boatbuilder since 2002.
Founded by Marcello Bè and Sergio Maggi, the yard’s range of 40-73ft Navetta, Flybridge and sport yachts is internationally renowned and it has a prominent presence at all of the world’s leading boat shows.
It’s name and motto (Reaching for the Absolute) reflects its desire to achieve the finest standards in both build quality and seakeeping. What’s more, Absolute is continually striving for environmental improvements, by fitting the most efficient and low-impact Volvo Penta propulsion systems.
Absolute’s inland location means that all the fibreglass hulls and decks have to be transported by road prior separately to joining and launch – a logistical hurdle that means every yacht is built to exacting standards to ensure it will stand up to the journey. Once launched, Absolute Yachts are easily maintained, with the yard ensuring that all key components are easily accessible and can be removed without the need for invasive processes.
