About Hinckley Yachts

In 1928, Benjamin B. Hinckley established Hinckley Yachts in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Henry Hinckley, Benjamin’s son took over the company in 1932 and by 1980, Henry’s son, Bob Hinckley, was running the company along with his business partner, Sheap McKenney.

Hinckley Yachts was a family company for three generations before selling to Bain Willard Companies in 1997. Hinkley was well known for producing sailboats, and started building powerboats in the 1930’s. During the 1940’s, Hinckley built close to 500 motor vessels for the United States government to use in World War II.

In the late 1980’s, Hinckley made a drastic shift from sail to power, launching the Talaria 39, an iconic Downeast-style motorboat. On the mission for a lighter vessel with a smooth ride, Hinckley was the first American yacht builder to convert from fiberglass to Kevlar in 1991.

Hinckley made significant headway in the yacht building industry with the production of the Picnic Boat, an easy to handle boat built for leisure and shallow waters. Dasher was the first Picnic Boat, launched in 1994.

The first American boat company to use SCRIMP technology, Hinckley was the innovator of JetStick and Dual Guard composites. With over eight decades of yacht building experience, Hinckley has seven sailboat models, ranging from 42 to 70 feet, and eight jetboat models, ranging from 29 to 55 feet.
