Refinement is a Hinckley tradition. So, the fact that they chose to re-engineer the Sou'wester 42, the most successful cruising yacht in her class, should not be a surprise. Neither should be the fact that they sold five of the new MKIIs in the first six months of her introduction. Though the Sou'wester 42 has won the Northern Ocean Racing Trophy (IMS Division) three times, Hinckley enhanced the boat's proven performance by combining the SCRIMP system with Kevlar® hybrid composites making the hull and deck lighter and stronger. The MKII is an even more comfortable cruiser than her predecessor. The forward cabin, head, and the main salon have all been enlarged. At the helm, the coaming has been cut away to provide excellent outboard seating. The new steering pedestal includes the single lever engine controls and instrumentation, illuminated switch panel, compass binnacle, and beverage holders. All the essentials are within reach of the helmsman.

More info


After 63 hulls, the most successful cruising yacht in her class has been re-engineered from stem to stem. Even though this design has won the Northern Ocean Racing Trophy (IMS Division) in 3 out of the last 6 years, Hinckley has found even more performance by combining the SCRIMP resin infusion system with Kevlar® hybrid composites. Weight taken from above the waterline has been put back in the form of additional ballast and the sail plan has been modified for easier shorthanding. All major bulkheads have been repositioned to enlarge the forward cabin, the head, and the main salon. The cockpit has been improved both in terms of comfort and function. Sheet winches have been repositioned for easier tending, outboard seating for the helmsman has been provided, and a new pedestal has been designed. Genoa tracks are now recessed to protect bare feet and provision has been made for cockpit electronics and instruments.
