WANTAGONG is an exceptional vessel, and an exceptional value. This example of the MKIII Picnic boat shows the way one expects a Hinckley to show – all systems, cosmetics and soft goods in fantastic condition. Glistening, glass-like varnish. Unblemished, glossy hull paint. Polished stainless ports, hatches and hardware. There will be no surprises when you come to see her.
Offered by her first and only owner, who has pampered WANTAGONG with the best care at either Hinckley or Dodson Boatyard, where she now remains in inside storage (heated during the winter). In fact, WANTAGONG has been inside since 2019 due to COVID and her owner’s being in Australia since then. They have reluctantly listed her for sale as they now realize they are unlikely to be able to come back to the US to use her.
She shows light use – approximately 500 hours on the engines, and only 130 hours on the generator. In addition, there is no “wear and tear” to be found – everywhere you look she appears to be in like-new condition.
These Picnic Boat 37′ MKIII version with the Volvo D4’s, Hamilton jet drives and the Hinckley JetStick behave like the newer boats but with less speed than the larger Volvo D6’s, for a considerable financial savings.
Highly recommended and available for showings now. We encourage your continued interest and hope to have the pleasure of showing you WANTAGONG.
