For Sale

Flag of Registry:


The Hinckley 38 is a nice combination of a more contemporary underbody while retaining the classic good looks of the Hinckley family of sailboats.  This particular yacht has had significant upgrading including a new engine, new fuel and water tanks a few years back, New 130% sail this spring and many other items, but after most of these updates she has had very little use. She is in the water this year and a pleasure to show. More pictures will be posted soon!

Full Details


ANNIE is number 21 of the Hinckley 38’s, designed by Sparkman and Stephens as a cruiser/racer. She has been setup for single-handed sailing, has raced twice to Bermuda, cruised around Newfoundland, and has cruised the coast from Maine to Savannah, Georgia (and back). Every system has been upgraded or replaced, with a new engine, Awlgripped hull, new winter cover (but stored indoors for many of the recent years), and ready for many additional coastal or blue water adventures.


Accommodations for up to 6 in varnished Phillipine Mahogany interior with varnished teak and holly soles.  7 smaller ports and 4 large fixed ports along with two very large hatches with screens provide natural light and ventilation with additional light provided by overhead lamps in work spaces and swivel style reading lamps at the berth and settees.

Hull Deck

The Hinckley 38 was one of the first boats Hinckley built with closed cell foam coring and was also one of the first Hinckley boats to sport a more modern underbody with her fin keel sweeping back to a skeg with propeller aperture on which the rudder is mounted. 

Hand-laid fiberglass hull. A 6,000 lb. external lead keel is fastened with ¾" Everdur bolts. Thru-hull fittings, engine, all shafts, chain plates, etc. are bonded with 4" copper strapping.

 The hull was re-gelcoated in 1993 (black), Awlgripped (black) in 2006 with white boot stripe, and the entire bottom was peeled with epoxy resin applied to seal the fiberglass, followed by coats of Interlux Interprotect 2000. Since being Awlgripped, she has been stored indoors, used very sparingly, and the hull is in excellent condition (see recent survey). Custom fairing strips have been added to the rudder and trim tab to reduce water turbulence over the hull

The Hinckley 38 sports a generous cockpit with sail lockers P&S, traveler located just forward of the helm for convenience when short handed sailing. wide side decks with molded in non-skid lead forward.  Stainless stanchions with single lifelines with gates P&S.
