In the maritime context, "abaft" refers to a location that is towards the rear (stern) of a ship or boat, relative to some other specified point of reference, typically the middle (midship) of the vessel.

If something is said to be "abaft the beam," for example, it means that it is located in the rear half of the ship, at an angle perpendicular to the middle or beyond. This term is used to describe the position of objects or directions on a vessel, aiding in navigation and the operation of the ship by providing clear spatial orientation.
