THE ABBY IS IN A CLASS OF HER OWN – Kiwi designed and South African built, she’s a race horse of a boat with comfortable handling and good looks! The symmetry and lines that shape the hull scream performance yet the accommodations, deck plan, and exquisite craftsmanship and styling have the hallmarks and creature comforts of a cruising yacht. A blend very rarely done right! Her build quality and finish is exceptional and will impress even the most discerning sailor.

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY! $475,000 WORTH OF RECENT IMPROVEMENTS – The Abby is a boat we are very excited to be offering for sale, she’s been sailed by prideful owners since new and the level of care she’s received is unequivocal. The owner has invested over $475,000 into The Abby in just the past three years. All invoices and a full list of improvements are available for the serious buyer. The plan was to sail the world for the next decade but a change in plans have resulted in the sale of this ready to go blue water cruiser. Nothing has been left to compromise and only the best has been installed.

PURPOSELY BUILT AND SERIOUSLY EQUIPPED for offshore blue water sailing. The center cockpit sits low in the boat and is well protected with the substantially built, solid fiberglass doghouse style dodger. Sails are easily managed with all lines led aft to the cockpit, electric winches, and the addition of the new Leisure Furl in-boom furling main and electric furling genoa. When necessary, movement to the foredeck is uncluttered and unobstructed with wide side decks and high stanchions. The Abby is equipped for extended and self-sufficient cruising. Solar and wind provide auxiliary power when the brand new Northern Lights generator is not in use.

While on deck there is not an inch of teak in sight, but step down the companionway and you’ll be welcomed to a warm, bright, and spacious interior with some of the finest teak joinery and craftsmanship available. The deck salon has a modern and clean look, cabinets are flush fitting, the inlaid teak trim matches perfectly with the teak and holly cabin sole, and it’s evident that beautify was just as important as form and function in her design. The layout is ideal with two forward guest cabins with shared head, a desirable passageway galley with all new amenities, and a gorgeous aft stateroom with centerline queen and ensuite head. A unique and highly desirable space on this boat is the converted fourth cabin which the owner has made into a very clever workshop complete with tool storage, custom cabinetry, and access to the ships machinery.

This is not a boat built to be confined to coastal waters or kept idle at the marina, The Abby is a boat set up and equipped to take her next owners to limitless destinations – fast – comfortably – and with minimal hassle! And with nearly half a million dollars put into her over the past three years in all of the right places, you simply won’t find a boat with more improvements, better equipment, and as capable as The Abby. We simply cannot say enough about this boat, she’s just arrived here in Fort Lauderdale and is not expected to be staying long before someone who knows that they are looking at moves in and sails her away!
