BLUE ANGEL is an opportunity to own one of the most well-appointed Talaria 44 Flying Bridge vessels ever built and is in exquisite condition.  BLUE ANGEL is unmistakably a Hinckley from every angle due to the lavish amount of teak accents that were chosen during the build process, from the varnished teak transom, the custom varnish teak pilothouse door, the full teak cockpit sole to the custom teak drink table at the fly bridge seating.  She is an extremely versatile vessel and adaptable to any boating activity you choose to undertake. Her reliable diesel Yanmar freshwater cooled Jet drives only draft 27 inches which make her great for island hopping and her Joystick Control takes all the stress out of docking. Outfitted with the ultimate in entertainment systems and options; she leaves nothing to be desired and is in "turn-key" condition. No expense was spared in building and maintaining this beautiful Hinckley and she is ready to take you to your favorite cruising destinations today!
