Hinckley - CUTTER

location icon Wickford, RI, US
Year 1955
Length 41 ft

This Hinckley 41’ Cutter, WRAITH, offers the unique opportunity to own a classic yacht with one of the best builder’s pedigree known, proven experience competing on the classic yacht circuit and ownership that has shown the dedication and commitment to maintain the yacht at the highest level.

Built in 1955, her hull is double planked mahogany over white oak frames and her decks are traditionally laid teak decks over plywood sub-deck.  From the time period of 2004-2006 she underwent a major restoration that saw the replacement of all her underwater hull with an inner layer of Okume plywood and an outer layer of Philippine Mahogany.  During this time, 50 of her oak frames were either replaced or sistered. Her structural bronze fasteners, including the ballast bolts, wooden floor bolts and plank fastenings were replaced.  During the current owner’s stewardship, the yacht has not only been maintained to the highest standards but many of her systems have been upgraded and improved and her sail inventory has been updated with a new suit of classically narrow paneled sails.   

WRAITH has been immaculately cared for and is set up for both single handed sailing as well as competing on the classic yacht series; successfully competed in the famed Opera House Cup, Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta and Newport Classic Yacht Regatta.   She is truly a remarkable yacht.
