“INSTIGATOR” is a well-optioned example of the Talaria 43. The hull is finished in a beautiful, classic Flag Blue Awlgrip hull paint with an off white colored pilothouse and cabin top. This very low hour “like new” example is Professionally maintained and in true Bristol condition.

This is a rare opportunity to own a 2017 Hinckley without the wait for a new build and at a discount from new.

“Instigator” incorporates many Hinckley firsts, from the galley up layout (excellent for cruising and entertaining) to the patented frameless glass aft enclosure, to the cockpit with SureShade electric bimini that retracts neatly into the pilothouse overhead. Other options include a full Raymarine Electronics package, luxurious Gloss Interior Varnish, and premium fabrics throughout.

The Talaria 43 features an innovative glass aft enclosure to the pilothouse that disappears with the touch of a button, large opening hatches and sliding side windows to make the boat feel open and airy.  A galley-up layout results in great light and visibility and connection to the living area. Below a large master cabin with a centerline queen berth and a second guest cabin provide comfortable sleeping space and share a well laid out head with separate stall shower.
