SUMMER HOWES is a very nice example of a Hinckley maintained Talaria 40 that has been thoughtfully updated throughout her life. She has spent every winter in heated indoor storage receiving the best of off-season care and enjoys light summertime use. Major upgrades which set her apart from most of her sisterships include Hinckley JetStick II with H-Lock & Heading Hold, hydraulic bow thruster and windlass, and a recent Cummins Onan generator. Always lightly used and lovingly maintained, SUMMER HOWES has less than 650 hours on her engines. Now fully commissioned in Portsmouth, RI for Summer cruising!
