American yard Hinckley has revealed a new performance brand and two new high-performance boats named Sport Boat and Sport Boat Center Cabin.
The new brand is Hinckley Sport Boats and the launch marks the celebration of 90 years of boat building.
“As we celebrate our 90th anniversary this year, we reflect on a heritage that has risen to the pinnacle of yachting refinement. With the introduction of the Hinckley Sport Boats today, we are bringing that refinement to performance boats”, said Pete Saladino, Chief Marketing Officer at Hinckley.
The 40 ft. (12m) Sport Boat is purpose-built, designed from the outset for outboard propulsion. With a modern hull design that is fresh off the drawing board of the Ray Hunt Design office, the Sport Boat is a high performance vessel.
Because the Sport Boats are built of lightweight carbon fiber, speeds of 60mph+ can be reached. Optional twin 627 hp outboards from Seven Marine will allow the Sport Boat to reach 63mph (54 knots). Standard engine installation is a triple 300 hp Mercury Verado four-stroke outboards.
The Sport boat with Center Cabin will be launched in July and has a much larger and functional cabin. She features a bathroom with shower, a three-person settee that converts to a V-berth and galley.
