The "Annie" New Price Reduction!

The Hinckley 38 is a nice combination of a more contemporary underbody while retaining the classic good looks of the Hinckley family of sailboats. This particular yacht has had significant upgrading including a new engine, new fuel and water tanks a few years back, New 130% sail this spring and many other items, but after most of these updates she has had very little use.

Every system has been upgraded or replaced, with a new engine, Awlgripped hull, new winter cover (but stored indoors for many of the recent years), and ready for many additional coastal or blue water adventures.

Seven smaller ports and four large fixed ports along with two very large hatches with screens provide natural light and ventilation with additional light provided by overhead lamps in work spaces and swivel style reading lamps at the berth and settees.

Continuing aft is the enclosed head to port with thwart-ship vanity with stainless steel sink and H&C pressure water. The manual w.c. is plumbed via a Y valve to the holding tank. The shower is an en suite affair and drains to a separate sump.

Opposite the head are two large hanging lockers and additional storage at the forward end of the Salon which features a straight settee above and outboard of which there is a pilot berth while opposite there is a U-shaped dinette (varying from the layout drawing) which makes down to a double berth should occasion require.

The Galley runs thwartships with a large well insulated ice box to starboard the Formica top of which also serves as a navigation station. Oppostie is a single basin stainless steel sink and Shipmate 3 burner propane stove and oven.

Hull Deck The Hinckley 38 was one of the first boats Hinckley built with closed cell foam coring and was also one of the first Hinckley boats to sport a more modern underbody with her fin keel sweeping back to a skeg with propeller aperture on which the rudder is mounted. Hand-laid fiberglass hull. A 6,000 lb. external lead keel is fastened with ¾" Everdur bolts. Thruhull fittings, engine, all shafts, chain plates, etc. are bonded with 4" copper strapping.

The hull was re-Gelcoated in 1993 (black), Awlgripped (black) in 2006 with white boot stripe, and the entire bottom was peeled with epoxy resin applied to seal the fiberglass, followed by coats of Interlux Interprotect 2000. Since being Awl gripped, she has been stored indoors, used very sparingly, and the hull is in excellent condition (see recent survey). Custom fairing strips have been added to the rudder and trim tab to reduce water turbulence over the hull.

The Hinckley 38 sports a generous cockpit with sail lockers Port and Starboard, traveler located just forward of the helm for convenience when short handed sailing. wide side decks with molded in nonskid lead forward. Stainless stanchions with single lifelines with gates Port and Starboard.
