The Abigail is a large luxury, $10 Million dollar, yacht. Initially thought to be Strand's she turned out to belong to the Abigail family, in particular to Thomas Abigail, Strand's long term life partner. It is a location featured in the first half of Season 2.
After being lost to Strand and Madison's Group midway through Season 2, The Abigail is discovered by Strand, derelict, overrun by the dead and washed up on a beach. Strand puts down the dead aboard the vessel (most of whom appear to be Mexican Navy); spends a night aboard; salvages some equipment, and weapons; then destroys her by setting her alight.
There are several locations in The Abigail itself.
The Abigail is a set rather than a functional boat. It was probably too expensive to buy or rent an actual boat to film in, they really do cost (upwards of) $10 million for a boat like The Abigail.

The Wheelhouse Edit
|This is one of the two places The Abigail can be controlled from, there are also controls on the Upper Deck|
Upper Deck Edit
|This is one of the two places The Abigail can be controlled from, there are also controls in The Wheelhouse.
Two versions of this part of the set were built, the version seen here which is atop the main boat set and a upper-deck-controls-only set, pictured that leads to the main boat set by the jetty, built at ground level to make it easier to film.
The Main Room Edit
|A fairly large sitting area, with enough seating for a full crew card game or tense, armed stand-off with armed boarders. And yes, Jesse McCartney, we're looking at you..|
Dining Room Edit
|The Dining Room holds a large dinner table that can seat ten.|
Crew Quarters Edit
|Where Nick and Alicia sleep.|
Engine Room Edit
|I wonder how long The Abigail's engine room will stay this clean?|
|There are several large and very luxurious staterooms.|
Swimming Deck Edit
|The Swimming deck is where you get on and off the Abigail when it's not docked. It's easy to step off into the sea or a small boat from here.
It's also easy to to get on The Abigail from here, just drive your boat up and step on, or swim up quietly.
