Introducing the Bruckmann Abaco 47
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 teens 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 ensuite head and separate shower. A guest cabin with head to starboard is offered with a double berth or twin single berths. The galley, to port, is open to the pilothouse providing plenty of light and ventilation, featuring separate refrigerator and freezer, induction cooktop and microwave oven.
The spacious pilothouse provides excellent visibility and seating comfort for dining and entertaining. Large sliding doors open aft, creating a seamless connecting between the salon and the generous cockpit seating area .
Bruckmann Yachts will build the Abaco 47 to order allowing each client to personalize their yacht to suit their specific requirements.
