EAST BY SOUTH is the first of the Bruckmann Abaco 47’s to be built, with two more currently in production for delivery in 2021 and 2022 respectively.  She was commissioned by a Palm Beach, FL couple who desired a very high-quality yacht that would be unique in a marketplace of common brands and mainstream looks.  The result is an impeccably crafted, capable and efficient vessel well suited to both cocktails and extended cruising alike.  Those inspecting her will find EAST BY SOUTH in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition with the most up to date electronics and engineering available in today’s market.  With fresh bottom paint and varnish completed in 2021, she is truly ready to go.


EAST BY SOUTH features a traditional arrangement plan with a large V-berth forward followed by a twin berth cabin to Starboard; both cabins have en-suite heads.  The Galley is to port and arranged mid-level between the lower and main decks allowing for panoramic views outside and into the Salon.  Her Salon has an L-shaped settee to port and two-barrel back chairs to Starboard behind the helm.  Her aft door, cleverly slides open 2/3 the width of the aft bulkhead and allows for a very open floorplan ideal for social cocktailing and entertaining.

Broker Remarks

EAST BY SOUTH is without a doubt the most nicely equipped and maintained vessel in her market segment.  Her stunning good looks turn heads all along the waterway and the attention to detail inside and out is top notch, Bruckmann really knocked it out of the park with this boat.  She is efficient and maneuverable around the docks and holds her own out at sea with a very pleasant motion.  Her owner reports she cruises nicely on plane in the 15kt to 24kt range but can scoot along at 27kt or 28kt if needed.  One of her most unique features is the capability to run almost all the ships systems, including the lower deck air conditioning, off her house lithium battery bank for up to 10 hrs without the need for the generator.  Her owner has spent many cool nights this past summer in the Bahamas (their favorite place to cruise)  using this system.   As a side note, her owners have cruised over 3500nm since taking delivery, the average total fuel consumption for EAST BY SOUTH since has been .97nm/gal…pretty remarkable.  

EAST BY SOUTH is on the market to make way for a larger vessel her owners already have under construction.
