by the old Hinckley Sport Cruiser 30, designed by Henry
Hinckley in 1940, the new 38SC and 42SC will hit the
market in various versions, including hardtop, soft-top
and fish-chasing “Blackwatch” models. Hull design is
by Michael Peters, and styling above the waterline is
by Scott Wood (right), Hinckley Product Development team vice
president. Moreover, just in case the intro raises questions
about Hinckley’s commitment to waterjets, the Southwest
Harbor, Maine-based builder will soon put a 55-foot
Talaria on the market powered by a set of Hamilton waterjets.

Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
