Project: Abacus 72

Abacus presents the project for a new 72 model, which will be the replacement of the 70. This new Sicily Italian yard offer is again a design by renowned Italian architect Fulvio de Simoni, who present a modern flybridge motor yacht. By the renderings so far available the new 72 seems to be a further development of the 70, with improvements in important stylistic areas. Most noticeable changes will be the single piece view window in the owners full beam amidships cabin, deeper side decks, a slightly higher radar arch, and a flybridge all reserved for entertainment with tender stowage moving to the bathing platform. The 72 is to be fully build with infusion fiberglass technology by DIAB Divinycell, a technology Abacus has embraced much earlier to other builders. No news yet on power engine choices but I do imagine this to be similar as the 70, which is offered with standard twin MAN 1360hp  or optional 1420 and 1550 units.
