About Hinckley Yachts
Hinckley yachts epitomize quality and elegance focusing on function, speed and stamina. The Hinckley name is synonymous with quality, strength and seaworthiness. Exceptional craftsmanship with a simple, elegant beauty that turns heads in every harbor.
History of Hinckley Yachts
Hinckley Yachts began in 1928 in Southwest Harbor, Maine, servicing local lobster boats and yachts owned by summer residents in Mt. Desert Island. Five years later, founder Henry Hinckley built his first boat, a 36-foot beauty with lines that are still familiar today.
Hinckley’s focus on high standards soon had them designing and fabricating their own hardware, a testament to their desire to produce the highest quality boat possible. The graceful lines and glistening brightwork made these yachts distinctive and that tradition carries on today. While beautiful, these yachts have their foundation based solidly on function giving them strength, stability and maneuverability in rough seas.
Currently Hinckley has eight locations in Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Georgia and Florida with over a dozen more authorized service locations worldwide. Production lines range from 34ft /10.36m to 55ft / 16.81m.

A pioneer in the use of fiberglass boat building, Hinckley began building boats with the material in the 1950’s. Fiberglass enabled them to save weight and add strength. An added benefit was that it allowed the boats to retain their sweeping lines that people had come to know and love. Fast forward to 1994 and the same thinking allowed Hinckley to make the switch to using Kevlar and carbon fiber from stern to bow. Unique Hinckley features include JetStick 3, Heading Hold and Dynamic Steering.
Production and Technology
As one of the first American builders to adopt SCRIMP (Seemann Composites Resin Infusion Molding Process) resin infusion, Hinckley remains a world leader. Additionally, they are the only builder using Carbon and Kevlar composite from bow to stern vacuum infused with epoxy and Hinckley is unique in guaranteeing their hulls and decks for life. This focus on materials and engineering applies to both their motor yachts and their sailing yachts.
Hinckley yachts are powered by water jets for efficiency and maneuverability. Jet propulsion provides unrivaled handling and is considered the best possible mechanical configuration for joystick applications. Hinckley uses jet propulsion, allowing their boats to operate in very shallow areas or in water with excessive debris such as lobster pots due to their lack of appendages below the waterline. Hinckley’s implementation of JetStick 3 brings military grade GPS hardware and digital processing to their yachts.
