Built by hand with unparalleled attention to choice of materials, fittings and finishes, to own a Down East Design boat is a lifetime achievement and only available to the fortunate few.
ABSOLUT is a beautiful example of this coveted design. She is a timeless designed boat constructed in hand crafted timber finishes and features a unique modern insulated fibreglass composite hull. All Down East designed Yachts feature a high bow and deep V hull providing smooth running even in the most challenging conditions whilst retaining a dry deck.
This Vicem 50 is a true Classic. Constructed in 2002 she has received every attention from her previous owners and looks like a 2020 model. She was repainted recently in the Hinckley Boatyard and has had no expense spared in constantly maintaining her appearance and performance.
When you overnight on ABSOLUT you know you are on a boat richly finished and nautical in every respect whilst fully air-conditioned. She presents as one of the best boats available in Australia, unique in so many ways, so if you are looking for the perfect, once in a lifetime opportunity this is the boat for you.
