Vessel Description


CHIC sleeps 5 in her spacious accommodations.  Forward, below deck, are a Master Stateroom, Head, Shower, Galley, and Dining Salon.  The interior is finished in satin-varnished cherry with white fabric overheads with varnished cherry battens, and a varnished teak & tulip cabin sole with cabin sole covers.  All lockers have louvered doors. 

The Pilothouse features two Stidd Helm seats, two L-shaped settees and a varnished teak table. The cockpit includes aft-facing settees, and a walk-thru to the swim platform.



DualGuard® Composite Construction and SCRIMP process. Hinckley's DualGuard construction has a skin coat of chopped E-glass mat in low shrink vinylester resin, an outer skin of Kevlar/E-glass, a core of end grain resin-sealed aircraft grade balsa and high-density foam, and an inner skin of carbon fiber.

In such areas as the hull/deck connecting flange, jet intakes, and all through-hull fittings, the core is eliminated and the hull reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass. A reinforcement stringer system of carbon is inserted into the hull, and the completed laminate (hull stringer system) is then SCRIMPed. The patented SCRIMP process, an advanced, closed-molding, resin infusion technique, uses a strong vacuum to saturate or infuse the "sandwich" with vinylester resin in a single step.

The hull shell is supported by a combination of foam cored FRP stiffeners laminated to the primary hull, and structural bulkheads.

These materials and building techniques provide for a superior surface finish, greater resistance to osmosis, high degree of stiffness & stiffness/weight ratios, greater hull strength against impact damage, and thermal insulation.
