New Model: Abacus 86

After being announced since 2006, and project renderings shown in 2008 Sicilian yacht builder Abacus presents its new 86 flagship model. Designed as all the range by Fulvio de Simoni, the Abacus 86 from the Sicilian builder located in Messina, enters the Super Yacht category by going above the 24 metres size. But please note owners operators that the Abacus 86 does have a waterline length of just under 24 metres, meaning it can still be driven by those in possession of a yacht master licence. Hull number one different to the renderings displayed a hard top on the flybridge, with a forward looking radar arch. The Abacus 86 offers a spacious four cabin layout with owners suite to mid ship, VIP to fore, and two guest cabins in between. Crew quarters with lobby and three berths is located to fore. Abacus also used the 86 to improve its construction standard, building the new flagship with infusion resin method by DIAB, and using the Besenzoni Sipario windows in the owners stateroom. The Abacus 86 is powered by twin Cats of 1825hp each which give a top speed of 33 knots, and a cruise of 30 knots. Rather fast considering the horse power and displacement of the new Abacus super yacht.
