To a certain extent, it’s true that each country builds yachts to particular stereotypes associated with its populace. Australians build rugged boats destined for adventure, while an Anglo fastidiousness pervades many British vessels. Americans, not surprisingly, are all over the board with our boats — a true melting pot. The same cannot be said for the Italians. In Italy, elegance reigns supreme. An example of this phenomenon is the 72 Fly from Absolute, which is headquartered an hour or so northeast of Genoa in the small town of Podenzano.
