2000 Hinckley Picnic Boat

Mystic, United States


Insurance Survey and Appraisal from Sept 2019 available. What sets this Picnic boat apart from the others is the peace of mind that comes from recently overhauled Yanmar diesel and jet drive. This extensive service includes replacing or refurbishing all internal components of the jet drive as well as all the external components of the engine along with adjustments of the engine valves. The boat passed the sea trial performance test reaching the 28 knots one should expect from a properly performing jet drive. Furthermore, all the boat's systems were inspected and serviced from stem to stern by marine service professionals to ensure all the systems will operate as expected and pass a marine survey. Other standout features include cabin and cockpit air conditioning/heating, new exterior cushions, and full bimini to provide sun & weather protection to the full cockpit.
