Full Details


Conceived as a stylish but practical day cruiser with accommodation for occasional longer ventures, the Abaco 40 finds favor with those who want fine sea keeping and performance in a boat with classic aesthetics. 

The hull configuration utilizes broad chine flats aft on a modified deep vee form that provides characteristic stability and an easy ride and motion. The Abaco 40 is powered by a single Cummins 670 HP diesel that cruises in low 20 knot range with a top speed of approximately 30 knots and a propeller and rudder protected by a skeg. Also available in twin engine pod drive form with a top speed in the high 30’s. 

Accommodations are generous with ample galley space, storage, machinery access and cockpit. 

The Abaco 40 is being build on a limited series basis.
