As one of the oldest boat builders in the world, Hinckley has a long history of innovation with breakthroughs powered by a strong embrace of technology and a deeply-held commitment to doing things the right way. For the past 25 years, Hinckley has brought family and friends together for meaningful on-the-water experiences on our iconic Picnic Boats and Talaria Motor Yachts.
The new Sport Boat 40x is high performance refined into elegant simplicity, a visceral experience for discerning owners who are pressed for time in this modern world and looking to make the most of every precious moment on the water.
Construction & Craftsmanship
The Sport Boat 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 with a companion outer layer of Kevlar™ 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 40x’s agile performance and deep V hull form will give you a smile from ear to ear as the sun shines. With the standard triple 300 horsepower outboards and optional twin 627’s from Seven Marine, the performance is visceral. Standard speeds will reach the upper 50’s and optional power will push 60mph. The carbon epoxy Sport Boat Center Cabin are among the fastest production boats in the world.
The Hinckley ownership experience is like none other. Our Hinckley-owned and operated Yacht Care centers uniquely enable us to deliver a highly-customized level of white glove service combined with a peace of mind that is very rare. Hinckley owners are introduced to their service manager upon delivery where they are given a three day hands-on introduction to the boat’s systems. They are also given their service manager’s direct mobile phone number and email address to ensure simple and close communication over the months and years ahead.
Our service managers are trained to keep up with the fast-paced lives our customers lead. If the boat needs to be moved across the Sound, south for the winter, or across the world, your service manager is only an email away and the details and complexity can all fade into the background.
