Critics applauded the Hinckley Sou'wester 70, designed by Bruce King, for its welcome return to classic lines and to design features that matter most to serious sailors. Significant overhangs, low freeboard, sweeping sheer lines and a gorgeous counter leading to a traditional transom make this ultimate Hinckley a head-turner in any harbor anywhere in the world. While undeniably a big boat, the Sou'wester 70 sails easily. Whether seated or standing, the helmsman can follow the inner toerail from bow to stern. Excellent seakeeping abilities and the convenience of a shallow draft of six feet, six inches allow her to sail anywhere in comfort, safety and distinction. Hinckley will build the Sou'wester 70 as owners wish: aft cabin, center cockpit and pilothouse deck configurations are available. Guest cabins, private baths, owner staterooms and crew quarters can all be laid out according an owner's needs. Each layout assures a spacious dining area, full galley and a comfortable salon.
