2003 Hinckley Talaria 29C

Belvedere, California


SCOUT II was built in 2003 with a complete refit in 2019. The new owner has taken the retro fit from 2019 and has improved upon to have the boat 100% turnkey. She is in excellent condition with perfect varnish, hull has been fully repainted, and all systems in proper working order. Options include a Hi/Lo table forward that converts to a sun lounge, autopilot, and recent engine and jet service, new varnish and all new covers. 

Scout II represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a lovely Talaria 29 Center Console that is ready for cruising and creating wonderful memories on the water.
