ABIM classic Dutch steel yachts grow by 60 cm during restyling
ABIM Yachting in Ossenzijl, Netherlands, has set standards in steel multi-chine motoryacht design for almost a decade now. Since the introduction of the first ABIM Classic, model designation was used to indicate the length of the model. ABIM Yachting has now made some changes to the original design with the effect that as of 2017 all ABIM Classic models will have an extra 60 cm in length, thus offering even more space and comfort. As a result of this extension, the naming of models has been adapted to the new dimensions. The new ABIM Classic 124 Exclusive, measuring 12.40 m in length, will be presented at "Boot Düsseldorf".
The ABIM Classic has also been restyled. The salon has been extended, and light materials have been used throughout the ship. What remained unchanged is its excellent sailing performance, the large aft deck of12 sqm and the couch including storage space for two folding bikes.
‘Our knowledge sets the course’ is the motto of yard owners Peter and Dinie Oord. This couple gained their knowledge and experience during a lifetime in boating. “We started with a yachting school and consciously chose to make the switch to yacht construction. Although we’re now the owners of a shipyard, we’ve remained active boaters.” That the design of the ABIM Classic is based on this wealth of experience is unmistakably recognisable.
ABIM Yachting selects its materials and suppliers with great care, and pays much attention to detail in order to create a remarkably luxurious finish. Each new model is extensively tested. And you can meet Peter and Dinie Oord almost every weekend out on the water somewhere. Every summer they sail through Europe on an ABIM Classic and post their adventures on www.abim.eu
