2004 Hinckley Picnic Boat EP

Easton, Maryland


CHELSEY is an incredibly clean, well maintained, and low hour Picnic Boat EP that benefits from an extensive list of upgrades and improvements over the past three years.  Her most notable (and highly desirable) features include recent Garmin electronics and Fusion stereo system, underway and dockside cabin and pilothouse air conditioning with engine-driven generator, excellent canvas, varnish, and cushions, OceanAir roller shades, sliding side windows, custom bimini top, and windlass package.  CHELSEY is enrolled in the Hinckley JetBoat Service Package and will convey with a one-year Hinckley Silver Certified Pre-Owned warranty because of this high level of care.  She will remain inside at the Hinckley Easton service facility until time to sea trial as her owner is moving to a larger Hinckley.
