As her name suggests, luxury yacht ABACO was named after the Bahamas island in dedication to some of the people most affected by recent Hurricane Dorian, and a percentage of the sale from the first hull will be given to reconstruction efforts on ABACO ISLAND.
M/Y ABACO has also been created with cruising through the region in mind: A shallow draft for accessing the waterways and beaches and plenty of outdoor space for enjoying the tropical sunshine.
Some of the main features of this yacht include a generous interior volume, living spaces close to the water, and a robust exterior appearance with contemporary elements. The large tender garage is capable of storing a 6m/19.7ft tender, while a separate forward tender garage can host a rescue tender or a whole array of the latest water toys.
The interior decor uses natural materials such as teak, straw, raffia, linen and tropical wood varieties to produce bright tones and a delicate exotic touch.
The main deck alone has over 120m²/1291.6ft² of outdoor space, and the sheltered main deck aft that joins a with the beach club forms a single social area consisting of an infinity pool and a comfortable sunbathing area. The area behind can be converted into a 16-person alfresco dining area and winter garden furnished with a bar and lounge allows guests to enjoy the outdoors even on less clement days, and the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors open the area for excellent indoor-outdoor flow.
The bridge deck main salon uses the same principles in opening up to the elements and has large side windows in addition to glass sliding doors to the aft. The upper deck, sundeck and bow combined offer 170m²/1829.9ft² of open space, each furnished with places for alfresco dining, lounging or resting in the sunshine or shade.
In terms of accommodation, the Owner’s suite has the additional benefits of an office and his-and-hers en-suite bathrooms. Four other large guest cabins are placed on the lower deck along with the crew quarters and mess in the bow.
The 40M ABACO is expected to have a hybrid propulsion package and the standard version is designed with two CAT C32 ACERT D engines that produce a top speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
