Hinckley Yachts is the Official Sponsor of the 2014 Captains Meeting.The Hinckley Company’s roots are deep in soil of Maine boatbuilding. The company, founded in 1928 to build and care for the boats of the local lobstermen, has been in continuous operation building such classics as the Bermuda 40 and the Picnic Boat. Henry Hinckley set the course with the Bermuda 40 in the early 1960s when he crafted her stunning lines out of a new material, fiberglass. This combination of elegant form, material innovation and brilliant attention to finishing detail set the course Hinckley has been on ever since in the pleasure boat business.
The Hinckley Company and Tripp Design have announced a collaboration, the result of which will be the thoroughly modern heir to the famed Bermuda 40, the Bermuda 50. Molds have arrived at the company’s Maine building facility and the company plans to launch the first boat next spring.
Sailors who require a bit of luxury and a distinct competitive edge will find both in the Bermuda 50 in much the same way its predecessor, the William H. Tripp, Jr.-designed Bermuda 40 satisfied this dual purpose when it first came to life a half-century ago.
A hydraulic lifting keel for shoal water exploration, easy sail handling features, a roomy interior, dinghy storage and niceties such as a hideaway dodger will win hearts and minds when cruising the Bermuda 50. Carbon fiber construction and the simple geometry of this modern rig make her well suited for competitive racing under IRC and ORR rules. The Bermuda 50 will be competitive in a broad range of events from a regatta race week, to Newport Bermuda, to arriving at the next anchorage a bit sooner.
Today, Hinckley builds Jetboats and sailboats from 29 to 70 feet and supports its owners and other yachtsmen with its network of service yards from Maine to Florida. In 2012 the company launched two new models to much acclaim: The Talaria 48 and the Hinckley T34. The Picnic Boat is in its third iteration with recent updates including heightened speed and more refined accommodations. The Hinckley Company will launch the Talaria 43 and the Bermuda 50, designed by Bill Tripp, in 2014.
