"SUNSET" is one of only two Hinckley 29's built with a cabin "Picnic Boat" style in the early development of the 29 model series. This unique pocket cruiser is rare and highly sought after. She sleeps two in the vee-berth, has an enclosed head and galley down below. The main deck seating accommodates the skipper in a pedestal seat, fore and aft facing companion seats and additional seating on the motor box.

The single Hamilton Jet with JetStick powered by a single Yanmar 315hp  Diesel provides smooth performance and easy maneuvering. A mere 18" draft allows exploring shallow bays and coves others can't enjoy.

Like her siblings the 29R and 29C she is a tough little sea boat.

Don't miss this unique Hinckley "Pocket Yacht", she is exceptional in many ways
