Hinckley Bermuda 40 Custom Aft-Cabin Yawl

Perhaps the finest example of a Bermuda 40 anywhere, PATHFINDER is my custom B-40 yawl that was meticulously maintained and updated by Hinckley in Southwest Harbor, Maine for world cruising (with photo albums documenting the modifications) and is presently in Vero Beach, Florida.

PATHFINDER is very rare and one of only seven B-40s with both cabins aft and a forward owner’s cabin. This layout, coupled with a modern-style u-shaped dinette, modern galley, and a navigation station, offers tremendous advantages in family sailing and offshore passage making.

She has been lovingly maintained and thoughtfully upgraded throughout her life, and no expense has been spared. She is safe and comfortable, a pleasure to sail, and always the prettiest boat at every anchorage.



Overbuilt using fiberglass, she has safe wide decks and a large comfortable cockpit. And with the bronze centerboard up she only draws 4'6" - perfect for the Chesapeake Bay, Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. With the centerboard down she draws 8'7" allowing her to point well into the wind in the worst offshore conditions.

A new boat forces me to sell this exceptional world-class ocean sailing yacht. She is being offered at $169,000. New build/replacement price for a Hinckley B40 is almost $1 million. You can buy a smaller and lesser boat for twice as much, or you can own one of the finest classic sailing yachts ever built - and one that will hold its value for decades to come. For more information please send me a PM.

Here are some additional photos:

Wow your sailing vessel is beautiful, I only wish I was a serious buyer but unfortunately not at this time. I do have a question for you though, if you don't mind.
With the yanmar 4jh and the 47g fuel tank what would be your range at a slow crusing speed naturally under power? Just trying to figure out a few things with my mind travels.

Thanks,
Walter

Re: Hinckley Bermuda 40 Custom Aft-Cabin Yawl

My 4JH burned about a 1/2 gallon an hour at 5+knots. But I weighed out at 26,000lbs. I imagine he burns a little less. So to answer your question, I would guess at least 450 mile range.

Celestial certainly knows his engines! The Yanmar 4JH is a perfect engine for this kind and size of sailboat.

Depending upon rpm, sea conditions and the like, we have experienced between 475 and 550 mile range on her two tanks without ever having run her empty (averaging 5.5-6+ knots speed). Each tank has its own updated and very accurate fuel gauge that is back-lit with night-friendly red light and positioned to be easily monitored from the helm.

She appears to be a modified 'Custom' built 66-68.
I owned a 64 #41.

Thanks for the kind comment.

Pathfinder is a Bermuda 40 Mk. I and was built in 1968 – Hinckley hull number 262. She went through a total re-build and upgrade in 2002 with many new and unique features, all of them documented in series of photo albums provided by the factory.

The rebuild was to prepare her for a lengthy and very successful Caribbean circumnavigation that included the owner-couple and two crew members who lived in the private aft cabins. Unlike so many other boats of her era, and indeed other B40s, Pathfinder enjoys a more modern living area below decks.

She was built for a weekend getaway, extended bluewater sailing, and for a couple wanting a classic boat to live aboard and sail safely and comfortably anywhere in the world.

Re: Hinckley Bermuda 40 Custom Aft-Cabin Yawl

If I may ask a question, what would be the average cost to maintain a boat like this, say, ten years? Including dry docking her for paint, maintenance, plus slip fees for ten years? I ask because a boat of this size is impressive.

After I give you $200,000 for price, taxes, fees etc, what is the next ten years going to cost?
