Hinckley MKII Talaria

A Hinckley MKII Talaria

This MKII Talaria caught our eye. She was launched in 2007 and received an update in 2017. Hinckley’s signature design and craftsmanship is unmistakeable. And what’s there not to love about blues, browns and cream. The 55′ MKII Talaria remains Hinckley’s flagship model to this day in their power yacht line up. 

Hinckley MKII Talaria

Hinckley has pioneered and perfected their Carbon / Kevlar resin infused hulls and composite parts by use of Scrimp technology for over a decade. With use of these processes the 55′ Talaria MKII hull and superstructure’s strength and light weight are second to none in her class. FORE ACES has cruising and max speeds of 26 Knots and 36 Knots, respectively.

She’s listed at $1,995K.

Hinckley Bermuda 40 for sale

A 1975 Hinckley Bermuda 40

SERENITY is a spectacular example of one of Hinckley’s most beloved models, the William Tripp designed Bermuda 40. She has been professionally maintained to a high standard for decades.  Recent work includes new brightwork in Bristol condition, and her hull was Awl-gripped in 2011, when the boom was redone as well.

Her sails remain in very good condition and the sellers state that she needs nothing other than a seasonal bottom coat and basic recommissioning.

After the war, Hinckley began experimenting with fiberglass as a potential boatbuilding material, though, true to his conservative Maine heritage, he didn’t rush into it. The Hinckley Bermuda 40, introduced in 1959 and still in production today, was a watershed for the company.
According to company notes on the B 40, “The firm had built a wooden 38-foot yawl in 1959 and had called her a Sou’wester Sr. It was Henry’s plan to sail the boat hard the coming summer and if she proved her worth, he would use her as a plug from which to build the mold for the first fiberglass Hinckleys. But this was never to occur.”
At the 1959 New York Boat Show, Hinckley was approached by a consortium of eight men, who had commissioned Bill Tripp to modify the Block Island 40 for them. The group’s front man, Gilbert Cigal, persuaded Hinckley to build the boats. The decision to abandon the Sou’wester Sr. was difficult, but from a business point of view, it made more sense to invest in tooling for boats already sold.

Practical Sailor

The Bermuda 40’s are centerboarders, which make them so appealing for so many that sail shallow waters. Though not terribly beamy by today’s standards, the B 40’s 11′ 9″ beam is substantial. If you can’t get stability through ballast located deep (remember, the design parameter was for a shoal draft boat; and, fin keel boats weren’t considered suitable in 1960 for offshore work), you must get it from what is called “form stability,” that is, the shape and dimensions of the hull. Similarly, the interior would not be considered very spacious by today’s standards, but in 1960 it had the room of a wooden 50-footer.

SERENITY is well-equipped with a diesel cabin heater, new Seafrost refrigeration, a Garmin 4208 chartplotter, Furuno Radar, and recent sound system. She is listed by Hinckley for $122,500 in Harborside, Maine.

Seabreeze, a Talaria 40

We had to share this beautifully preserved 2007 Hinckley Talaria 40 we found. “Seabreeze” has been maintained by her original owner by Hinckley Yacht Services in Portsmouth, Rhode Island during the winter months and lives at the Hinckley Yard during the summer months as well.  She is enrolled in the HinckleyWinter JetBoat Package which includes heated indoor storage.

1965 Hinckley 41

A 1965 Hinckley 41

Camelot is 1965 Hinckley 41 who has just undergone a complete refit that is truly befitting her heritage. Her current owners have painstakingly gone over the yacht from stem to stern, with a keen eye on honoring the craftsman details that these classic yachts are so well known for.

The entire boat was disassembled and restored with upgraded or new components. Her interior was updated to reflect the “U” shaped settee and navigation system typical in more recent Hinckley layouts, and galley surfaces were refinished with Corian countertops. She has new refrigeration and hot water heater. Electronics are NMEA 2000, with radar, wind and knot meters and depth sounder with a pedestal mounted instrument pod and autopilot (make not listed).

Her topsides have new Awlgrip in Flag Blue, and her deck and interior ceiling have all been resurfaced. Her plumbing, wiring, standing and running rigging have all been replaced with new. Her main sail has three seasons of use and remains in near new condition and her blocks and winches have all been restored.

The owner states that every screw and bolt was removed and rebedded, with no moisture issues, leaks or questionable fittings. After a restoration that cost $268,000, she is listed at $154,000 in Maine.

1967 Hinckley H-41 for sale

1967 Hinckley H-41

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.

1973 Hinckley Pilot sailboat for sale

A 1973 Hinckley Pilot

“Liberty” is a lovely 1973 Hinckley Pilot who has benefitted from two major refits in recent years. Both refits were performed at the Hinckley company  – one in 1999, and another in 2011.  She’s obviously been well-loved throughout her life, as her owner has continuously invested to maintain and increase her “like new” condition. She is stored in a heated facility during winter months.

 

 

The Hinckley Pilot is a true sailing classic with an impressive pedigree. From Tribeca Sailing: “Sparkman & Stephens unveiled the design for the first Pilot class in Yachting’s October 1945 issue.  Aage Neilson, a freelance designer working with S&S at the time, drew the first Pilot class lines. In 1955 Hinckley purchased the design and created what was known as the “New Pilot” and “the ultimate in combining livability, seaworthiness and speed”. Constructed in wood, eight boats following these lines came off the production line, only one a yawl.  Hinckley wanted to build the boat for the “out-and-out cruising man and long distant racer”.

 

 

In later years, around 1962, the dimensions were increased to 35’9″; DWL 25’0″; Beam 9’6″ Draft 5’0″ SA 554 sq. ft. and Displacement 13,000 lbs. The boats were now constructed in fiberglass and it was this design that became known as the Hinckley “Pilot 35” built exclusively by Henry R. Hinckley & Co.  Of the 117 fiberglass Pilots built, 25 were yawls.  Construction was top grade and included hand crafted furniture quality interiors made from Philippine mahogany with bronze fasteners. “

 

 

“Liberty” was repowered in 1999 with a new 40hp Yanmar. Her hull was stripped, faired and repainted in 2011 and she comes with a full array of Raymarine electronics and Autohelm autopilot. She’s in truly pristine condition and ready to sail. She’s in Westerly, Rhode Island and is listed for $130,000 USD.

Hinckley Dasher

Hinckley Electric Yacht

Here’s Hinckley’s first zero emission electric yacht.   This 28.6′ 21st century design is aptly called Dasher after the original Hinckley Picnic Boat that created a whole new genre of yachts in the 1990’s.  It sports a carbon-epoxy composite hull designed by Michael Peters to provide superior performance and handling.  It has hand-painted “teak” brightwork that never needs to be oiled and saves weight.  The titanium hardware and iPad-like controls are elegantly modern.  Dasher‘s twin 80 horsepower electric motors and dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries provides its electric performance.

Dasher is a zero emissions boat that requires zero time at the fuel dock.  It can be charged with dual 50 amp charging cables that are standard in most marinas, and charge twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars.

Since its cruising speed is a modest 10 MPH with fast cruising at 18-27 MPH, and its range on a single charge is limited to 40 miles or less, Dasher is not intended to be an offshore boat.
