ABSOLUT is truly a magnificent tribute to what is rapidly becoming the lost art of fine yacht building. From her blind splined teak cockpit coamings, flawlessly varnished, to her hand-rubbed teak and ash woodwork, Awlgripped bilges and meticulous mechanical and electrical installations, she is truly a work of art. Her lines are smooth and flowing and her rig efficient and easily handled.

ABSOLUT is definitely not a yacht for everyone, but for those that appreciate such enduring quality, a personal inspection will prove that the finished product verifies the ability, time and effort that went into her design and construction.


Displacement: 26,000


Total Power: 50
