Cannes, September 2012: in the end Absolute is returning in style into the sector of its origins and it is celebrating its first 10 years of activity by launching the new “Absolute 40 Sport Line” (40STL), a boat made for outdoor life without limits.
The key to understand this project is all in its name “Sport Line”: the brilliant and sports nature – which has always been Absolute’s peculiar feature – meets the lines and style of the most recent creations.
The result is winning and attractive under many points of view. You get on board through a small platform and then you enter the cockpit from the safe side passage protected by an enveloping gunwale. The U-shape sofa with suitable dining table hosts 6 people in true and full comfort. The kitchen with its special furniture helps to corroborate the on-board pleasant atmosphere with its hob, sink and fridge.
In order to shade the summer heat or to have a rest from the unsettled weather typical of cool seasons, you can install the optional cockpit cover, hidden under the back of the aft cockpit sofa. For those who prefer a more technical profile and a permanent protection from the sun, it is possible to opt for an elegant Hard Top, perfectly integrated into the sports and elegant profile of the 40STL model.
For full relax of passengers, aft between the cockpit and the platform you can find the first most attracting element: a wide and wrap-around sundeck, where you can be caressed by the warm rays of the sun and sweetly rocked by the waves. For a refreshing break, the lowered platform ensures easy entry and exit from the sea, for spirited water games or invigorating swims.
The spaces on the deck are enriched by the second bow sundeck with adjustable back, which can also comfortably host 3 people. The access to this area is easy and safe, thanks to the wide passages and to the presence of a new uninterrupted perimeter protection, which reveals the attention given to small sailors.
The steering console perfectly embodies the classical Absolute style, with a special touch of originality in the choice of colours. Two separate, adjustable and wrap-around seats host the pilot and co-pilot, following precise ergonomic rates, with full comfort and easiness of use.
