The Hinckley Talaria 40 combines the Picnic Boat's agility and shallow draft with the twin-engine security and spacious accommodations of the Talaria 44. Twin 440 hp jet drives and a weight of just 26,000 lbs. make the T40 a performance yacht. Top speed is 33 knots, cruising speed 28. Range is 300 nautical miles, bringing once-distant anchorages well within reach. A draft of just 26 inches means areas untouched by ordinary 40-footers are now an owner's private sanctuary. The Bruce King-designed lines of the Talaria 40 Jet are unmistakably Hinckley. Pedigree is everywhere: in the flared bow and arched tumblehome, in the overhanging roof of the pilothouse and in the graceful sweep of the sheer, covered in a deep, glossy coating of Awlgrip. The helm affords a 360-degree view of the teak finish, while the cabin features a roomy galley and full head with separate shower to starboard, and is fitted with a cedar-lined hanging locker. Three large hatches and multiple opening ports bathe the cabin in light. And like all Hinckley powerboats, the T40 is quiet, its engines insulated by double-gasket hatches. At cruising speed, conversation - and contentment - flows freely.
