Hinckley Yachts has announced their latest launch, the T34, which promises jet-drive draft, top performance, and Hinckley style fit and finish. On July 2 the first hull is set to splash, and Hinckley will christen it with a gathering of its employees plus members of the press in Southwest Harbor, Maine.
The T34 will come equipped with Hinckley's signature Jetstick, a joystick that makes maneuvering the boat a piece of cake whether you're docking in a tight slip, or sliding through a crowded marina in a cross-breeze. And while handling a jet drive does require a learning curve for most new owners, Hinckley makes sure you get started right by providing a jetboat trainer for your first experience, with a three-day training session. Best of all, with the twin Hamiltons in the T34, the draft is a mere 22 inches.
The bridgedeck has plenty of seating for passengers facing both fore and aft, and is protected by a full hard top. Wood accents and trim line the cockpit, bridgedeck, and cabin - which includes a forward V-berth, an enclosed head, and a galley with all the appliances you need for a meal on the hook, including a refrigerator, microwave, stove-top, and sink.
The T34 is 34'3" overall, has an 11 foot beam, weighs in at 14,000 pounds, and hauls 160 gallons of fuel. Transom deadrise is 19-degrees. Stay tuned for a full-blown review - you know that with a ride this sweet hitting the water, we'll get our hands on one as soon as we can.
