Abaco Beach Blue Marlin Tournament

ABBMT

Hosting the Bahamas' richest marlin tournament and the final leg of the Abaco Diamond Series, the Abaco Beach Blue Marlin Tournament could make your dreams of catching that grander marlin a reality. The tournament calls the stunning Abaco Beach Resort its homebase where daily breakfasts are delivered to the crews every morning and rum punch dock greetings are ready for their return. If blue-water billfishing is your game, you don't want to miss this exciting Skip Smith tournament. To download your entry form, click here

In 2017, 61' Garlington "Wave Paver" took first place with five blue marlin, 76' Viking "Miss Victoria" took second, and 68' Bayliss "Uno Mas" took third.

In 2016, the Viking Yachts team along with HMY Yacht Sales Professionals Dave Meyer and Glenn Clyatt won the Abaco Beach Blue Marlin Tournament with 2 Marlin, 2 Sailfish, and a 39.6-pound Mahi-Mahi aboard the Viking 62 Convertible. Our video team was there to capture the action, and we're excited to welcome the Viking Captain in this video, Brian Komer, as our newest HMY Yacht Sales Professional.
