New Model: Hinckley T48 Talaria Motor Yacht

Hinckley unveiled its new T48 Talaria 48 Motor Yacht in February at the Miami show, and continues the expansion of this range joining the first family of American yachting, with roots in Maine work boats and branches as distinguished as the Bermuda 40 and the Picnic Boat.  With its state-of-the art vacuum Scrimp construction, classic styling above the waterline, and innovative design below, jet propulsion and patented JetStick control, this stunning T48 Talaria Motor Yacht yacht is already earning her place in the Hinckley family.  In preliminary sea trials, targeted boat speeds of 30 knots at cruise and 35 knots top were easily met on the motoryacht version of the boat with standard twin Cummins 715hp and jet drives. In heavy seas and breeze, the boat rode very comfortably, with T48 Talaria featuring a fuller bow with convex sections that reduce the rise and fall motion gives the boat a softer ride.  Accommodation is two cabin plans with owners room with en-suite bathroom located to fore, and a double guest cabins to starboard.  A galley is located below decks to port side, with a luxurious welcoming saloon on the main deck, behind the dual seat helm station.
