The Bermuda 40 remains the most popular sailboat build by Hinckley with over 200 built to order over 30 years, making it the longest running production boat in America.  Her graceful lines designed by Bill Tripp combined with Hinckley craftsmanship result in an enduring classic.  A generous, comfortable cockpit and wide side decks and a furling main and electric winches make her easy and enjoyable to sail, either daysailing, coastal cruising or beyond.  HARMONIA (name reserved) is hull number 200 of 203 built and shares details and craftsmanship of the SW42’s that were being built at the same time.
