Absolute 43 - IPS and a convertible hardtop
What they say “Maintaining its top-performance features, the vessel creates a new way of experiencing the sea in style and elegance, with a hi-tech, sporting spirit.”
The convertible hardtop and its extended overhang could make this one of the most attractive Absolutes for UK buyers, even though the sunpad over the tender garage suggests warmer destinations.
The cockpit also features a U-shaped sofa seating seven, plus an outdoor grill and fridge.
As well as the manoeuvring capability of the IPS drives, the major selling point for the 43 will be its fuel efficiency at higher cruising speeds.
The Absolute 43 is also available with sterndrives.
