About this Hinckley Sou'wester 59

"Eclipse" comes on the market fully commissioned as sail-away ready. She should be considered for any yachtsman who wants to step aboard a boat that is ready to go, on either long-range voyages or day sails. Her current owners purchased her in 2008 and have spared no expense or effort to make sure she looks and performs not only as a classic but also as a capable blue-water cruiser. 

Design Comments

“Eclipse” is hull #of the very popular Hinckley Sou'wester 59's designed by the esteemed naval architect firm of McCurdy & Rhodes. These boats were designed to be comfortable weekend cruisers and at the same time to be true "Blue Water" vessels with the capabilities to take their owners anywhere in the world in safety and comfort. Centerboard configuration offers a minimum draft of 6’-6” with board up and a maximum draft of 12’-6” with board down. A moderate fin keel and skeg hung rudder allows this boat to provide the sailing performance of a modern-day contemporary cruiser/racer while at the same time, providing more traditional hull lines above the waterline.
