Sport Boat 40c

Whether you’re cutting through the weather at 45 knots in the early hours with your fishing crew, or ambling quietly through a harbor at sunset, creating your irreplaceable memories is where Hinckley’s experience matters the most.

The Hinckley Sport Boat 40c is purpose-built for offshore performance.  Expect a visceral experience that will give you goose bumps and a smile from ear to ear. The key design parameters are agile handling, offshore comfort, and ease of use. The Sport Boat 40c is built of lightweight epoxy-infused carbon fiber composite with Hinckley’s world renowned craftsmanship.

On the Sport Boat 40c, we’ve designed an expansive forward J-seating area. The stern area is defined by a leaning post amenity with optional ice maker and electric grill. Below deck is an air-conditioned cabin with refrigerator, cappuccino machine, cooktop and microwave all standard. A u-shaped settee with seating for 3 converts into a queen sized berth. The Sport Boats bring a level of Hinckley refinement in materials, construction, product performance and experience to owners interested in outboard powered boats in a wash down format.

The Sport Boat 40c is standard with Mercury V12 600 power, which means you can go farther with 20% better fuel economy at a 15% faster cruise speed—and two engines instead of three affords an oversized swim platform transforming both your day in the water and on the water.  These are truly yacht motors. With silky smooth gear shifts maneuvering around the dock, you will own the helm with quiet authority in every harbor.


Refined Performance

On the Sport Boat 40c, you’ll find a fully integrated and retractable sun guard covering a stern area defined by a leaning post amenity with optional ice maker and electric grill. The hull-side door makes boarding easy and the integrated swim platform is perfect for family fun.

Through the full-size companionway door, the galley is to port with a refrigerator, cappuccino machine, cook top, and microwave standard. To starboard is a full head with a pressurized freshwater shower. Moving forward over the lightweight teak and holly laminate flooring in the air conditioned center cabin, a U-shaped settee with seating for three converts into a Queen size berth.

An optional Seakeeper 3 gyro stabilizer, designed to eliminate up to 95% of boat roll, provides for an enjoyable experience with friends and family and a wonderful night’s sleep at anchor.

Construction & Craftsmanship

The Sport Boat 40c is expertly built of infused epoxy with an integrated primary bond between hull and stringers for a stiffer, stronger and more durable hull. The underbody is fresh off the drawing board of the legendary Ray Hunt Design studio and is a modern update on the Deep V ride renowned for fast and safe performance in a seaway.

Unique among outboard-powered production boats, the Sport Boat is built of epoxy-infused carbon from bow to stern. Hull and grid are infused at the same time for incredible strength and durability. An inner layer of carbon fiber is laid bow to stern for bulletproof puncture resistance. The cloth is laid up dry into the mold which allows fibers to be aligned to the computer-designed load paths. The structural grid is also dry laid up inside the hull mold and then everything is infused with epoxy at once to form a chemically bonded structure of incredible strength and durability. This is Hinckley’s time-honored vacuum infusion process. Our confidence in this approach is why we are unique among production and semi-custom builders in guaranteeing our hulls and decks for life.*

Time on the Water

Time is a precious commodity. Time on the water spent with family and friends is very precious indeed. In our modern lives, we want to escape from the day-to-day and feel the wind in our hair, if only for a little while. The week is spent thinking about these brief but transformational moments.

You want to make the most of every precious moment on the water. The Sport Boat’s agile performance and deep V hull form will give you a smile from ear to ear as the sun shines.  The carbon epoxy Sport Boat 40c is among the fastest production boats in the world.
