Hinckley Bermuda 40'
Hinckley has been renowned as the premier name in yachting since their beginning back in 1928. The Bermuda 40 first debuted in 1959 and represented the evolution of Bill Tripp’s famous Block Island 40. His design paved the way for top-of-the-line American fiberglass yacht manufacturing in the United States. This vessel was built for serious sailors worldwide. Her lines are timeless and gently curved. She’s a fast and powerful yacht that cuts through big seas rather than pounding overtop of them. Further, her centerboard keel allows only a shallow draft of 4'-1" allows you to poke your nose way up to the shallowest waters. Drop her fin down to the full 8'-7" while off shore and she'll just scream to weather. She truly is an incredible boat.
How many get to call their yacht an investment? Hinckleys are so well built and so highly regarded, value retention is extraordinarily high. Even today, you can find Bermuda 40’s, from as far back as the 1960’s, that have sold for $175K -- $250K.
This vessel has had but one owner her entire existence. Due to health she has seen some neglect over the past ten years and will need someone with some time and love to nurture her back into shape. Two feet off the stern was removed and is sailed as a 38' sloop rig. 3 cylinder Yanmar runs strong. 1,000 pounds added ballast to the keel and double laid fiberglass hull. This boat is a tank and a true steal for those looking for a project.
