Hinckley needs no introduction. The storied company’s day cruisers and picnic boats have attracted generations of boaters already, but the company’s new T34, launching this summer, may bring in a few new converts. Seeking its customers’ input, the company found clients wanted simplicity, and Hinckley responded by focusing on the essentials: great looks, ease of use and versatility. A spacious cabin sleeps two and includes a large head and full galley. Standard twin Yanmar 6BY2-260s coupled with twin Hamilton 242 jet drives will give the boat a top speed of about 32 knots (enough for watersports) and a cruising speed of 29 knots or so. The deep-V hull has a shallow draft (about 22 inches), beam of 11 feet and joystick control, which promises maneuverability and ease of docking. The new T34’s styling makes it immediately identifiable as an offspring of the famous Hinckley family.
