If a classic ’60s Hinckley is your kinda thing (and how can it not be?), then Revel is likely about as good as it’s gonna get. Functionally, she’s several decades newer than her vintage implies, having undergone a complete refit in 2001-2002 by Strouts Point Wharf Company, that included ALL systems, every inch of interior and exterior finish. And the upgrades didn’t stop there, with several quality improvements since, like a new complete waste system, including holding tank, in 2012.
The 41 Classic is famous for a reason, known for outperforming her little sister, the legendary B-40. Her aesthetics aren’t bad either, with a beautiful Herreshoff-style interior that accommodates up to six, with white flat panels and varnished mahogany trim. There is an abundance of natural light and ventilation with four large and six smaller fixed ports, two oversized hatches and two large dorades. A Luke Soapstone solid fuel stove takes the chill off on foggy mornings or extends the cruising season.
On deck the Hinckley 41 offers an expansive cockpit measuring 8′-8” in length with large sail lockers custom locker aft of the wheel (which is dead space on other 41s). Her mast was replaced in 1996 with all new standing rigging, and was re-awlgripped in 2008. Her owners claim a notable performance improvement over the original spars.
Her owners have obviously cared for her greatly, and if you’re in the market for a classic, this one certainly earns your attention.
