URBAN (name reserved) is a Hinckley Picnic Boat Classic that just received a total refit/ repower and is in exceptional care. This boat is maintained by Hinckley Yacht Services in heated indoor storage during the winter months in their comprehensive YachtCare Program. All upgrades were completed by Hinckley as well. This boat has a new Yanmar 440hp Common Rail engine for the fastest speeds seen in a Picnic Boat Classic JetBoat. Other updates include Garmin electronics, FLIR camera, Fusion entertainment system, adjustable lighting, fabrics, Stidd helm seat, teak decks, overhead hatches and side opening pilothouse windows.

This impeccable Hinckley was also heavily optioned at build with rare teak decks, full teak veneers in pilothouse, teak coaming boards, custom cabinetry, varnished folding teak cocktail table, adjustable backrest for engine compartment and more.

To conduct a refit of this size and scope at any yard (let alone Hinckley Yacht Services), would cost in excess of 300K and take almost a year to complete. If you like the classic lines of a Bruce King designed Hinckley, but want speed, reliability of new systems and all the latest in technology, this is the boat.
