PRICE REDUCED! Henry R. Hinckley envisioned the H49 Center Cockpit Ketch as an easily handled, comfortable, and capable cruiser with liveaboard accommodations for his own family. The big beamy shoal draft cruiser has proven to be just that, whether cruising northern waters, the Bahamas, or world voyaging. 24 were built between 1971 -1976. Simba is a rare find whos owners have spared no expense towards her upkeep including two major refits and constant upgrades and attention since her purchase in 2001. Sailed seasonally the past twenty years on the fresh clear waters of Lake Superior, and always stored in heated storage, Simba is in excellent, turn-key, set-sail, condition and ready for your wanderlust to take you wherever it leads. A detailed review of the H49 Ketch can be found in the July 2010 issue of Practical Sailor.

The H49 Center Cockpit Ketch with a shoal 5'10" draft with the center board up and 10' draft with the board down provides a great deal of versatility for cruising the Great Lakes, Eastern Seaboard, Chesapeake Bay, South Florida and the Keys, the Bahamas, and beyond. The ketch design makes for an easy to manage sail plan while also keeping the mast height low enough for easy transit on the ICW. The H49's beam and full volume has the capacity for plenty of fuel, water, and stores to extend your cruising range and liveaboard comfort. The 120hp Ford Lehman diesel engine should provide power to move the boat at a top end cruising speed of around 9 knots.
