DUET is without doubt the best-condition Hinckley 59 on or off the market anywhere; she is in turn-key condition and ready to sail. Over the past year, she has gone through an extensive restoration by the renowned Dodson Boatyard in Stonington, CT. Everything has been replaced and updated, both mechanically and cosmetically.
She has fresh Awlgrip topsides, cabin, decks, mast and boom and flawless varnish throughout. All equipment is new, including a completely rebuilt Perkins motor from trans-Atlantic diesel with 20 hours total running time.
Everything from the keel to the top of the mast has been replaced or refurbished inside and out. The bottom was stripped, barrier coated, and painted with all new running gear. A new Side Power bow thruster was installed. All of the electronics were replaced in 2017, including touchscreen Garmin GPS/ radar/AIS at nav station and cockpit. Additionally, a new Garmin autopilot was installed. The Garmin radar dome is mounted on a custom stainless platform from Kato Marine.
DUET has a beautiful ash interior unique to Hinckley Yachts. She has a spacious three-cabin layout that has been completely re-varnished and repainted, from the bilges to the ceilings, with all new countertops, sinks, faucets, microwave, stove, toilets, plumbing, hot water heater, cushions, upholstery and curtains.
The list goes on and on. This entire renovation was undertaken in 2017, making the boat virtually new!
