Stepping on board through a small platform you enter the cockpit from the safe side passage protected by an enveloping gunwale.  The U-shape sofa with suitable dining table hosts 6 guests in full comfort.  The galley with its special features helps to corroborate the on-board pleasant atmosphere with its hob, sink and fridge.

To provide shade 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 full relaxation, aft between the cockpit and the platform yo find the 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 games or invigorating swims.

The spaces on the deck are enriched by the second bow sundeck with adjustable back, which can also comfortably hosts 3 guess.  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 helm console perfectly embodies the classical Absolute style, with a special touch of originality in the choice of colors.  Two separate, adjustable and wrap-around seats host the pilot and co-pilot, following precise ergonomic rates, with full comfort and easiness of use.

Access to lower deck is protected by a classical sliding companion hatch.  Going down to large steps is the dinette.  Left is a second complete galley, to be used in case of bad weather.  Towards the bow there is a dining table with the sofa (which can be converted into a double bed).

All the on-board equipment, spaces and services allows this brilliant "sport line" ready for long-rate trips or overnight stays.  In addition, everything is completed by the proverbial qualities of efficiency of the Absolute hulls.

Dimensions, practicality, style, sportsmanship and design lines make the "Absolute 40  Sport Line" a unique and exclusive proposal to combine in a single boat very different customs and requirements, from the family on holiday and the weekend friends to the group of scuba-divers or sport-fishing lovers.
