At Becket & Co. we value our long standing relationship with Hinckley Yachts so we were delighted when the award winning shipbuilder announced the launch of a new powerboat earlier this month.
On the eve of the Newport International Boat Show, Hinckley president and CEO Jim McManus revealed details of the Talaria 43, its third new powerboat model in as many years.
Our team of experts in yacht management services on the Eastern Seaboard specialize in the management of Hinckley Boats so we heartily welcomed the news, revealed in the shape of a full size mock-up of the new model at the Newport show.
Mr McManus said: “Building a mock-up like this gives us an opportunity to really see how the spaces work and to be sure we’ve got it right. Apparently, we have succeeded—we have five Talaria 43s already on order.
“The timeless good looks of the Talaria line are readily apparent in the new boat, as is Hinckley’s penchant for evolution through design and technological innovation. Several notable new features distinguish the new design from her sister Hinckley models and other boats in the marketplace.”
The Talaria 43 features a technological first: it boasts a glass pilothouse rear enclosure with a door which completely disappears with a touch of a button. This ground-breaking feature, which came about through listening to current Hinckley owners, means the boat will appeal to those who like the openness of an express boat, but who also desire the sense of security afforded by a solid enclosure for bad weather.
Other boat companies have offered retracting windows but Hinckley Yachts is the first to make the door retract fully as well.
The boat, which is expected to cruise at 30 knots with a top speed of 35 knots, has an elegant cockpit with spacious seating as well as a hospitality bar with refrigerator and sink.
Meanwhile, below deck is a queen master stateroom at the bow of the boat, a double guest cabin to starboard and a head with stall shower opposite.
