Hot Water is a beautifully maintained Hinckley Talaria 43 combining the finest concepts from both our iconic picnic boats as well as the larger motor yachts. Her patented aft glass enclosure to the pilothouse, disappears with the touch of a button, creating an inviting and versatile layout. With a single level open space, she is perfect for entertaining large groups while maintaining a more intimate and protected air conditioned and heated pilothouse when needed. The aft cockpit is the perfect perch for watching the world go by and has a retractable sureshade awning above.

Her Galley-up layout is light and open with great 360-degree visibility. A smart and efficient hallway connects to the living quarters. The forward master stateroom offers a large centerline queen berth with ample storage locker and drawer cabinetry. There is a second guest cabin to starboard and a shared well-appointed head to port, featuring a separate shower stall.

The Talaria 43’s shallow 28 draft and patented JetStick® control will allow you to explore places few boats of her size can venture.

Whether you are running offshore on a weekend adventure or cruising just outside an inlet to catch another sunset with your friends this boat performs both missions with style and grace.
