“TRUE BLUE” is a custom Hinckley Talaria 42 with interior cabinetry by the Patten yard in Kittery Point, ME. It is the only Talaria of its time to be built with twin engines. Her composite hull was laid in 1991 and the custom interior by Patten was completed in 1993.

This well pedigreed yacht has more redundancy features than her twin engines. “True Blue” also has a spare set of propellers and even a spare propeller shaft in a very clever storage location. Her low hour Westerbeke genset powers her AC and refrigeration with ease for comfortable warm weather cruising. Her upsized ground tackle system makes anchoring a snap. Please review True Blue’s specs below to see how special this yacht is.

True Blue is serviced by Hinckley Yachts in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
