ALIZÉ V is a wonderful example of the Abaco 40 series built by Bruckmann Yachts. Launched in 2012, she still feels, looks, and acts like a new boat (she has always been serviced and stored indoors in a heated building at Bruckmann Yachts and has spent most of her life in fresh water) and represents an opportunity to acquire an Abaco 40 without the wait of a new build. She is a handsome Express Cruiser with a distinctive ‘Downeast’ look and design with a single engine and running gear protected by a keel.Abaco 40s are known for their elegant finish and solid construction, and are designed to be handled by one with wide side decks, proper rails, a transom door and best-in-class visibility from the helm and salon. With variable-speed bow and stern thrusters, maneuvering in tight quarters and docking is an absolute cinch. ALIZÉ V is a joy to helm in a seaway and rides comfortably at any speed in conditions that leave many others behind at the dock, thanks to a refined and proven hull designed by Mark Ellis.ALIZÉ V comfortably accommodates two in the forward cabin, plus an additional two overnight guests on matching pilothouse settees. A large head with separate and proper-sized stall shower and generous galley round out the interior below. The salon and cockpit are the true focus of the yacht and will not disappoint, with room for the cruising couple by night and all of their friends and family by day.Engine access is second-to-none in her size range, via hatches in the pilothouse and an access door from the galley to the front of the engine room. Powered with a 670 hp Cummins diesel, ALIZÉ V planes easily at 10-12 knots and cruises comfortably and economically at 22-24 knots, with a top speed of 29 knots -- all with a single engine! Bruckmann Yachts has been building quality boats for 50 years. The Abaco 40 is a seakindly design, with simplicity of operation and maintenance as primary in her design brief. While taking advantage of modern technology, decades of design and build experience have not been thrown out the window to chase trends and unproven technology. The Abaco 40: Classic style and appeal, with quality construction and details throughout. Truly a head-turner at the dock, as well as underway.
