37' Hinckley 37 MKIII
Be sure to check out the new video for the 37' Hinckley MKIII. at the end of the "specs" for the boat.
The 37-footer, a redesign, represented a second act of sorts for Hinckley, which defined the category when it launched its original 36-foot picnic boat in 1994, and the new updated version, the MKIII, is its most successful new model ever.
Architect Michael Peters, deepened the V from 15 degrees of deadrise at the transom to 19 degrees. The new hull is dryer with better seakeeping abilities.
This yacht is equipped with twin Yanmar 370 HP diesels, Hamilton Jet Drives and Jet stick II, and has less then 550 hours on the engines.
The twin Hamilton waterjets reside under the cockpit; an in-sole hatch provides access. The buckets and nozzles, which control direction, hide under the standard swim platform. That means there is no running gear underneath the hull, giving this 37-footer a skinny draft of just 2'1" (seven inches deeper than her predecessor), easing some of the worry associated with close-quarters boating.
The power plants sit directly under the pilothouse with 110-gallon fuel tanks mounted outboard on either side. The original tanks held 83 gallons each, but extra fuel was needed to compensate for the added weight and horsepower and to keep the cruising range at more than 200 NM.
Walking up the single step into the pilothouse gave me an even greater appreciation of this latest incarnation. The first thing I noticed is how much you can actually see. For an enclosed helm it felt airy and open, no matter where I sat. Hinckley owners wanted the person at the helm to feel more connected to the outdoors, and the deeper V allowed the builder to raise the pilothouse without making the 37’s lines too tall and boxy, giving passengers 6'5" headroom under the hardtop and a higher vantage point.
Two steps down into the cabin, the new design added four inches to the total cabin headroom, now 6'3". That’s key for taking a shower in the head to starboard, for prepping a meal at the port-side galley, or for overnightingEvery possible option including full teak decks and the rare full teak cockpit with double ended trim on saloon couches.
3 AC units, (2) in cockpit and (1) in cabin. Fusion Stereo with 3 zones and remote and upgraded TV. Custom cockpit awning with carbon fiber poles. Full build spec available. Stored inside climate controlled building when out of the water. All service and maintenance work carried out annually.
Hinckley’s patented JetStick control has three modes: Docking Mode that adds the use of a hydraulic bow thruster for close quarters handling, Power Steer Mode that allows for total joystick control underway, and Helm Mode that provides for more conventional steering with the wheel.
The jets are so responsive in docking mode that if you put the joystick in reverse, the Hinckly will came to a near dead stop. Spin her on her axis, crab sideways with the thruster, and hold position with almost no effort.
