Modelled on the success of the Abaco 40's unique performance and seakeeping characteristics, the Abaco 47 offers a larger platform with more accommodation for extended cruising. Designed by Mark Ellis, the Abaco 47 utilizes the same proven hull form used on the Abaco 40. This innovative hull configuration allows the Abaco 47 to plane at low speeds (12 knots), affording a wide cruising speed range as well as extremely fuel efficient performance.

The Abaco 47 is powered by either a single or twin diesel engines. The single engine series utilizes a Caterpillar C18 1136 hp diesel and will cruise in the low to mid 20 knot range with a top speed of approximately 30 knots. The propeller and rudder are protected by a skeg that also provides excellent stability and tracking in a seaway. The twin engine configuration is powered by twin Caterpillar C8.7 641 hp diesels and will cruise in the mid to high 20 knot range with a top speed of approximately 34 knots. As with the single engine installation, a centerline skeg provides the same directional stability and tracking performance as well as grounding protection. The variable speed bow and stern thrusters provide excellent handling and maneuverability.

The Abaco 47 interior features a spacious master cabin forward with island queen berth and ensuite head with separate shower. A guest cabin to starboard is offered with a double berth or twin single berths. The twin configuration provides ensuite access to the second head. The galley, to port, is open to the pilothouse above providing plenty of light and ventilation. The galley features separate refrigerator and freezer, induction cooktop and convection microwave oven.

The large pilothouse provides excellent visibility and seating comfort. An 'L' shaped settee with dining table converts to a double berth when needed. Opposite the dining table is a smaller settee with a television lift outboard. Forward port and starboard are Stidd helmsman and co-pilot seats. At the aft end of the pilothouse a large sliding door opens to the cockpit, where there is comfortable seating for outdoor dining or lounging.

Bruckmann Yachts will build the Abaco 47 to order allowing each client to personalize their yacht to suit their specific requirements.
