Hinckley's first center console, the Talaria 29 C is the result of four years of careful development. Prototype 28s of various layouts were tested in the Chesapeake, in Florida and in Southwest Harbor, Maine, and countless design ideas incorporated before she was approved for production. The result is a versatile center-console vessel worthy of the Hinckley tradition, and deserving of its place in the Talaria line. Like all Hinckley jet boats, the T29 C was engineered, from the drawing board up, to take full advantage of the benefits of a jet drive. Her lightweight yet strong DualGuard hull is propelled by the quiet force of a 440 hp Yanmar diesel. Helmsmen can elect to steer her via the JetStick control, the patented, computer-integrated system that allows precision steering with little practice or on-the-water experience. A simple twist of the JetStick, and your T29 C gracefully moves forward, back, even laterally. Finely crafted teak, varnished to signature Hinckley standards, accents the dash, seating areas, toe rails and trim. And all metal parts are of high-grade 316L stainless steel, shaped to fit the unique lines of the boat. Plush upholstery in the owner's choice of colors offers seating for up to seven guests. Secure lockers provide ample storage for a day's provisions. And a T-top option adds protection from sun and precipitation.
