Hinckley Yachts for Sale
Founded by Henry R. Hinckley in 1928 as the Manset Boatyard in Southwest Harbor, Maine, the yard began servicing lobster boats and yachts for summer residents on Mt. Desert Island. After building his first 36-foot fishing boat in 1933, which attracted attention due to its beautiful lines, demand for Hinckley’s hand-built boats quickly grew along with the yard’s reputation for attention to detail and quality.
Over the years, Hinckley has excelled at building both power and sailing yachts, including the popular Bermuda series of sailboats, known for their performance both in racing and cruising. In 1994, Hinckley created a sensation by launching the first jet-powered Picnic Boat, combining tradition and innovation. The Picnic Boat series spawned a yachting industry jetboat trend.
Today, as one of America’s oldest boat manufacturers, Hinckley builds power and sailing yachts from 29 to 55 feet. The company also owns Hunt Yachts, a manufacturer of distinctive powerboats and motor yachts from 26 to 76 feet; and Morris Yachts, a maker of quality sailboats from 29 to 52 feet. Hinckley also has nine yacht care service centers on the east coast of the U.S. from Maine to Florida, which offer everything from refit and transportation to general maintenance and storage services.
Dedication to Innovation & Quality
Since its founding, Hinckley has maintained some of the industry’s highest construction standards in the marine industry. Dissatisfied with many of the production parts available to him, Henry Hinckley began fabricating his own hardware. In the 1950s, Hinckley was one of the very first recreational boat builders to switch from traditional oak-planked construction to fiberglass. That commitment to innovation later led the company to utilize carbon and Kevlar from bow to stern in its popular Picnic Boats and Motor Yachts. In fact, Hinckley today is one of the only manufacturers building boats from carbon and Kevlar composite, vacuum-infused with epoxy.
Hinckley’s power yachts feature Hamilton water jets, which provide precise handling. The company’s JetStick 3 system features military grade GPS hardware and digital processing for an operating experience like no other. Additional Hinkley innovations, including Heading Hold and Dynamic Steering further simplify and improve the operating and driving experience. Hinckley’s dedication to innovation also led it to launch Dasher, a fully electric luxury yacht.
Hinckley is so confident in its yachts’ quality and durability that it offers a lifetime guarantee on its hulls and decks.
