Several years ago, Bruckmann Yachts, a highly respected, world-class builder of custom motor and sailing vessels, selected Great Island Boat Yard to serve as an authorized commissioning, warranty, and service center for their yachts. Since then, GIBY has commissioned and cared for several Abaco 40s and Bruckmann 50s and, through this partnership, has furthered Bruckmann’s mission to ensure long-term reliability and owner satisfaction for every boat delivered.
Recently, and to this end, another classic Abaco 40, hull #4, arrived at GIBY for a custom color Awlgrip paint job and full commissioning. The owner, now working closely with the GIBY management team on final fitting out details, described his excitement best, “I feel like an expectant parent!”
Here are some early images of one beautiful “baby” during initial delivery. She’s well on her way to an official christening!
