The Hinckley Talaria 48 is the latest in the Maine builder's line of yachts crafted in the style of the Down East lobster boat. Company president James McManus says Hinckley's team drew up the boat twice before getting the distinctive Hinckley look right.
The builder was looking for something between a Talaria 44 and 55 that an owner could operate comfortably alone or could accommodate a cruising couple and their children, grandchildren or guests.
The 48 has a master suite with private head, a guest stateroom that sleeps two, and a roomy cockpit and saloon. Powered by twin 715-hp Cummins diesels and Hamilton waterjets, the boat measures 44 feet, 8 inches at the waterline and is designed to cruise at about 30 knots and top out in the mid-30s.
