42' HINCKLEY SOU'WESTER 42 (1989) OFF MARKET
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.
