About

Company history

Hinckley has been manufacturing boats since 1928. The shipyard is known for its classic design and quality assembly. Even when all the boats were wooden, the ones made by Hinckley stood apart. There was something about the way they moved on the water - majestic, proud and graceful, they rocked their pennants in the harbour at dusk. Their lines are the result of their need to withstand the rigors of life among the rocky coves and protruding promontories of the Acadian coast of Maine. The special shape with its strong hull and wide deck lines, speed and endurance distinguish them from all others.

Company founder Henry Hinckley, aviation engineer by training, has never been afraid of innovation. In the 1950s, Hinckley was one of the first to give up bends and decks in favour of fibreglass - according to scientists, husbands who were completely unsuitable for building the right yacht. But Hinckley saw in the glass fibre what the traditionalists had missed: the opportunity to save weight by adding strength without sacrificing aesthetic beauty.

Hinckley was the first American yacht builder to use SCRIMP (Zeeman composite resin injection molding) technology in its yachts. Having joined the new owners in 1997, Hinckley began building motor boats equipped with jet engines. The company also developed more advanced fiberglass construction techniques called Dual «Guard, which»resulted in a stronger hull.

The star of the new generation of Hinckley boats is the all-electric Dasher, a vivid example of the encounter between design and technology. Absolutely silent, unbelievably aesthetic, setting new standards.

«We hope these boats will usher in a new era of refined performance,"»says Pete Saladino, Hinckley's chief marketing officer.

Production

The Hinckley hulls were designed by chief naval architect Michael Peters and built in Maine. The emphasis on modern composite materials (carbon and Kevlar) using epoxy resin makes the yachts strong, lightweight and invariably luxurious with a mandatory teak finish.

A lineup

Builds 50-foot cruising yachts and sailing boats withdek-salon.
