TRUE BLUE is a very special Hinckley Talaria 42. She is the only one built with two engines for speed and redundancy. She also has a second stateroom. With genset and AC, this classic trawler is ready for cruising. Maintained and located at Hinckley Yacht Services in Portsmouth, RI. Asking $279K
“TRUE BLUE” is a custom Hinckley Talaria 42 with interior cabinetry by the Patten yard in Kittery Point, ME. It is the only Talaria of its time to be built with twin engines. Her composite hull was laid in 1991 and the custom interior by Patten was completed in 1993.
This well pedigreed yacht has more redundancy features than her twin engines. “True Blue” also has a spare set of propellers and even a spare propeller shaft in a very clever storage location. Her low hour Westerbeke genset powers her AC and refrigeration with ease for comfortable warm weather cruising. Her upsized ground tackle system makes anchoring a snap. Please review True Blue’s specs below to see how special this yacht is.
