One of the most acclaimed and innovative yacht designs ever, the Hinckley Picnic Boat Classic is an elegant, sought-after, gentleman's yacht  Artistically hand-crafted by well-known Hinckley Yachts in Maine, she offers a luxurious varnished interior, a large head compartment, a full galley, and comfortable overnight accommodations for the occasional cruising couple.

This vessel is a later model that has been professionally maintained and serviced. She offers some nice amenities such as opening side windows and folding anchor with locker and windlass. She also features dockside air conditioning, which is a rarity for the Classics, and can be safely operated in shallow waters, the draft is only 18 inches

An excellent entertainment platform, her long cockpit (with centerline engine box that can be used either as a seat or a  table), and her comfortable seating makes any sunset cruise a delight. Equipped with a quiet Yanmar 420 hp diesel, water-jet propulsion, and joystick control for easy tight-maneuvering

 She has been annually maintained both cosmetically and mechanically. Her jet and engine service was completed in the past year and all three batteries replaced in 2019. She is priced right,  and ready to go today.
