Lovingly cared for by her owner of nearly 40 years, hull #14 of the Hood-designed Hinckley 43 was originally built for Bob Hinckley himself and was named Night Train.
Since leaving Maine the vessel has been based on Long Island Sound and spent each winter indoors receiving the highest level of care. Notable recent capital improvements include a 2015 repower, 2017 electronics refit, and 2013 North Sails Spectra main and jib.
Vessel was photographed while in storage, please excuse the lack of hull and deck photos.
