Over the years the Hinckley Company has developed a wonderful brand and clearly distinguished itself within the boating community. Their power line consists of multiple boats that are between 44 and 55 feet in length. Many of the Hinckleys that are now being sold on the brokerage market may be purchased at rates that are currently more cost-effective when compared to when they were brand new.
The product’s name brand, its attractiveness to a certain level of consumer, the quality of construction, and the overall classic look have all retained their appeal to a certain sector of the market. Because of this, these boats are seldom offered for sale at low costs, however, instances of this brand do sometimes come up for trading at prices that put them within reach of the value buyer.
Typically, the reason for this is the circumstances under which the seller is selling the item. Nevertheless, if you’re interested in boats that are similar to the Hinckley, the following is a list of possibilities for you to take into consideration.
1. Back Cove 34O
The Back Cove 34O has award-winning standards that were designed with cruising in mind. This boat combines traditional Downeast style with contemporary outboard power.

Cranchi Yachts has successfully combined a classic appearance with a contemporary and athletic one in their E26 Classic model. The design of the E26 was influenced in part by yacht designer Christian Grande, who has previously held positions at Sacs Marine, Sanlorenzo Yachts, and Invictus Yachts.
The contrast between the traditional look of the teak foredeck and the modern appearance of the wraparound windscreen, which can be opened to provide access to the foredeck, is striking. The decor of the ship, which includes the furnishings, has a lively red hue that contributes to its athletic appearance.
The captain’s seat and the companion seat both rotate so that they may face the guests who are sitting on the L-shaped sofa in the aft cabin. There is a folding table in the port area, and there is also a Bimini top that can be folded away. One of the staterooms below decks is a forepeak cabin.

13. Greenline 39
Greenline Yachts’ boats are well called since they provide an ecologically friendly mode of transportation, and the Greenline 39 is not an exception to this rule. The Slovenian yacht maker creates two variations of this boat, one that uses solar power and another that uses hybrid power.
If the owners choose the second option, the vessel’s four solar panels, which are located on top of the salon, are able to power all of the vessel’s systems for a period of three hours. The 39 is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 6.5 knots as well as a cruising speed of 4 knots when it is propelled by the power of the sun.
The hybrid version makes use of the very same solar panels to assist in the powering of a 220-horsepower Volvo Penta D3 that is equipped with a Mahle electric-drive system. The owner has the option of upgrading to a Yanmar 8LV diesel with 370 horsepower in place of the base engine.
14. Sabre 40 Sedan; 42 Salon
One of the most popular yachts produced by Sabre, the 40 Sedan combines traditional Downeast design with cutting-edge building techniques to create one of the company’s most successful models. Sabre was one of the first Downeast manufacturers to make use of efficient pod drive technology.
This is a characteristic that has a lot to do with the yacht’s lasting appeal, and it was one of the reasons why Sabre was one of the first. The 42 Salon is the ideal boat for traveling and entertaining guests due to its big cockpit, enclosed pilothouse that doubles as a salon, and layout that has two roomy staterooms.
In the salon, there is a dinette, a step-down galley that is open to the salon, a side-by-side pair of Stidd chairs, and an L-shaped sofa with an inlaid table.

15. Grand Banks 43 Eastbay SX/HX (Single and Double)
An evergreen design that is without a doubt among the most well-liked Downeast boats in this particular class. The 43 Eastbay is more than simply a gorgeous yacht; her gleaming beauty makes her stand out in each port you visit. She is supported by a Hunt-designed modified deep-V hull, which enables her to travel at high speeds while offering an extraordinary level of open-water comfort.
The magnificent teak workmanship seen throughout her cabin is unrivaled. The Eastbay’s almost ideal use of space results in a sizable cockpit, a roomy helm deck, a sizable salon (in the SX version), and a galley below, along with two cabins and a big head with a stall shower. All of these areas are accessible from the cockpit. Because of her adaptability, she is well suited for day sailing, weekend getaways, or long cruising with a family or a couple.
Because there is no hatch, the salon and the helm are both exposed to the lower deck as of the year 2006. Yanmar 440hp diesels travel at 24–25 knots (high 20s top). The addition of a fish box and a hardtop has been a popular choice. The engine box in the cockpit may be utilized as a seating area., and the hull of the Fortier is completely cored.
