1971 Hinckley Bermuda 40

  • 40 ft
  • Marion, MA, US

Yacht price :



Sinead is a well-maintained example of the renowned Hinckley Bermuda 40 yawl. She has been professionally maintained and indoor heated winter storage at Burr Brothers in Marion, MA and at Hinckley in Southwest Harbor for pretty much her entire life.

She was originally owned by Bob Hinkley's business partner and the current owner has been sailing her throughout New England since 1986. Sinead has seen some thoughtful upgrades over the years including: a new Westerbeke engine in 2005, her bottom was soda blasted and re-done in 2018, teak and holly soles sanded and re-varnished and all new halyards in 2020.

Sinead is out of the water in indoor storage in Marion, MA. She is fully serviced, exterior brightwork has her maintenance coats and in excellent condition and she is ready to be launched and sailed for the summer immediately.
