Manufacturer Info



If there’s one model that focused the world’s attention on the beautiful lines of a classic Downeast-style craft, it was the first Hinckley Picnic Boat. That jet-powered day cruiser from a reputable yard and manufacturer of sailboats in Maine showcased the loveliest lines this side of Southwest Harbor. Its drop-dead gorgeous traditional looks and top-notch fit and finish drew global fans and spawned a line of waterjet-powered cruisers that now ranges from 29 to 55 feet. Among the key features of a Hinckley are the patented JetStick–which allows for precise maneuvering of the twin jets–and the craftsmanship, which is top of the line and rooted in Maine’s maritime heritage. Hinckley owners like to think of their boats as works of art, as each is built with some of the finest construction and joinery in the industry.
