“Eleanor” – A Hinckley Classic 36’
Timeless style meets comfort and class. Founded on the rocky Maine coastline in 1928, Hinckleys offer an unprecedented boating experience. These distinctive yachts have been navigating the waters with elegance for over a century, yet they continue to push the envelope on innovation today.
The Hinckley Classic 36 remains the original picnic boat since hull 1 was built in 1995. The boat is magnificent and many consider to be the best-looking Hinckley ever built.
Powered by a 380hp Yanmar diesel conveniently mated with a Hamilton jet drive, Hinckleys are comfortable cruising inshore or offshore. The semi displacement hull is stable, dry and at rest has a draught of only 2 feet making it the perfect boat for exploring the ever-changing inlets and sandbars around Wilmington and Figure8. Below deck they are well appointed with a spacious double v-birth up forward, petite galley and private head with shower.
There is ample seating on deck for 6 passengers from a mix of forward and rear facing seats. An electric windlass on her bow allows for precision anchoring in shallow water with the stern positioned in the shallows for easy, safe swimming and beach access. Learn more about Hinckley Yachts.
