Princess P is a meticulously maintained Picnic Boat EP in absolutely beautiful condition.  She features teak decks, teak cockpit combings and additional teak in her pilothouse. Her current owner has upgraded the electronics to a full Garmin suite, converted all lights to LED, recovered the helm chairs and added a custom cockpit sunshade. She spent much of her life in fresh water and has been maintained with an open check book at Hinckley Yacht Services. She has received 6 continuous years of  Hinckley’s YachtCare Package Service in RI and is mechanically and cosmetically “turn-key”.  Princess P will convey with a Silver level Certified Pre-Owned Warranty from Hinckley.  One year of jet control/drive system coverage and one year of major engine component coverage from the date of brokerage sale. 


Since its introduction in 1994, the Hinckley Picnic Boat has become the most successful single motor yacht in this company’s history. With the Picnic Boat EP, Hinckley has extended the pilothouse roof by 2.5 feet, added an L-shaped settee, and now offers an optional 3 by 3-foot triangular teak pedestal table, creating a layout ideally suited to relaxed conversation and gracious entertaining. The engine box, typically used as the picnic table, has also been redesigned with entertaining in mind. As part of the EP option package, it incorporates a wet bar with molded-in sink, foldaway faucet and an insulated icebox. The reconfigured engine box also includes an additional aft-facing cushioned seat, facing the standard transom settee – a favorite perch of sunseekers. In all other respects, the EP retains the Picnic Boat’s performance features and refined appointments. Her jet drive, JetStick controls and 18-inch draft allow access where no other 36-foot yachts dare venture. DualGuard hull construction of Kevlar and carbon makes her highly rigid and impact-resistant, yet lightweight enough to reach a top speed of 28 knots. And her interior is handcrafted in cherry with Hinckley’s signature teak and holly sole varnished to a rich luster.
