Even in a time when all boats were wooden, the ones that were made Hinckley, standing separately. It was something in the way they moved on the water — the majestic, proud and graceful, they shook their pennants in the Harbor at dusk.

Founder of Henry Hinckley (Henry Hinckley), an aeronautical engineer by training, has never been afraid of innovation. In 1950 years Hinckley was one of the first who refused to bulkhead deck in favor of optical fiber — according to scholars, is completely unsuitable for the construction of "proper" yacht. But Hinckley saw in the fiberglass that missed the traditionalists: an opportunity to save weight, adding strength without sacrificing aesthetic beauty.

Once the new owners in 1997, Hinckley began to build motor boats with jet engines. The company has also developed improved technology of construction of optical fiber, called "Dual Guard", which was a stronger case.
