‘Life Should Always Be A Picnic’…This is a great opportunity to own a Classic Hinckley Picnic Boat!  A very popular boat since her introduction in 1994, the Hinckley 36 Picnic Boat is a water-jet driven 36 foot weekender with an absolutely elegant profile and stunning performance.  The innovative product of one of the world’s premier builders, the Picnic Boat’s fully cored, vacuum-bagged hull weighs in at an extremely light 11,500 lbs.  With the jet-drive, she draws only 18 inches and can be operated in very shallow water. 

‘Wave’ has been very well maintained by GlassTech in Magnolia, MA and has enjoyed in-door, heated storage in the off seasons. ’Wave’ is an exceptionally well cared for and well-equipped vessel. Her Topsides were awlgriped Navy Blue in 2017 and New Instruments installed at the helm. Her many features include the 420-hp Yanmar engine, Hinckley JetStick®, air conditioning in the cabin, Refrigeration, etc.
