Review:

“The history of Hinckley Yachts chronicled in a lush new monograph. Voulgaris has unearthed many photographs and documents about the firm’s early years and used them to piece together an illuminating narrative about the evolution of an important American brand. For nautical newcomers, the volume offers a primer on the world of fine boatbuilding; for aficionados, it provides fascinating details about Hinckley’s many technological advances, races won, and extraordinary track record making new models that become instant sensations.” –Architectural Digest
 
“For a generation of mariners, Hinckley has been a source of national pride...In this book, sailing aficionado Nick Voulgaris III takes readers on a nostalgic journey through 86 years of boatbuilding.” –Travel + Leisure
 
“Hinckley Yachts are synonymous with superior craftsmanship and beautiful design...The book follows the company’s success from its early days, through its patriotic duties during wartime; to its role in advancing science and engineering; and finally its place today as one of the world’s premier yacht manufacturers. A must for every boat-lover’s coffee table!” – Lakeland Boating
 
“Come sail away...Hinckley Yachts, a seafaring history of the classic sailing and motor vessels...” –Wall Street Journal

"This book celebrates the 86-year-old company through a detailed recounting of Hinckley's interesting past." -Worth Magazine
 
“...a lavish new coffee table book celebrating the brand...” –Just Luxe
 
“Since 1928, boat-maker Hinckley has been crafting yachts for the international sailing set, and providing ultra-lux floating mansions to the world’s most discerning buyers. In honor of that 85-plus-year tradition...take a tour through some of the most arresting nautical imagery.” –Vanity Fair
