The Abaco comes with a gorgeous pastel-green gelcoat thattastefully accents its graceful lines. The entire cockpit, gunwalesand foredeck are finished in a good-looking diamond nonskid finish,so footing is secure even when wet. Passage from cockpit to bow isample given the boat’s size. Construction is intended to lasta lifetime, thanks to all-composite stringers, transom and core.Our high-speed offshore runs in three- to four-foot seas proved thebuild was solid. The 242 Abaco tracked confidently in high-speedturns and docked like a seasoned horse heading to the stables.
