1953 36' Hinckley

Built by Henry R. Hinckley Co. in Southwest Harbor ME in 1953, Beanie is a 36 Hinckley Standard (similar to the 35 pilot, but with taller cabin head height). She was completely repowered in 2022 with a brand new 2021 Volvo Penta. She underwent a full survey in late 2021 (available upon request), and has been looked after on The North Fork by noted boatyard, Wooden Boatworks. She is a head turner in every harbor, with classic lines and beautiful construction.
