2001 Hinckley Talaria 44 Description

OTTER is a 2001 Hinckley Talaria 44 that has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by her owner of 12 years. She was a Great Lakes boat till the current owner bought her. Since then she spent 10 years in cruising New England managed under Hinckley’s service program before being brought down to FL 3 years ago. She’s always been winter stored or lift kept for at least half of each season ensuring she’s in excellent condition. 

Every detail of this remarkable yacht has been meticulously attended to. She features low hours, upgraded Glendinning ProPilot Jet Joystick system as well as Garmin electronics.

Hand-built using the advanced boat building technologies, the 2001 Hinckley Talaria 44 uses Kevlar and carbon fiber as part of Hinckley’s innovative DualGuard composite construction. Twin 420 hp diesels and a jet propulsion system accelerate the T44 to a cruising speed of 28 knots with a top speed of 33 knots.

With a mere 27-inch draft, unheard of in a boat of her size and capabilities, the T44 Jet rewards owners with that rarest of yachting pleasures – a peaceful anchorage, far from crowded deep-water harbors and marinas.

Located at Palm Harbor Marina in West Palm Beach, OTTER is easy to preview.

2001 Hinckley Talaria 44 Vessel Overview


Hinckley's DualGuard construction has a skin coat of chopped E-glass mat in low shrink vinylester resin, an outer skin of Kevlar/E- glass, a core of end grain resin-sealed aircraft grade balsa and high-density foam, and an inner skin of carbon fiber. In such areas as the hull/deck connecting flange, jet intakes, and all through-hull fittings, the core is eliminated and the hull massively reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass. A reinforcement stringer system of carbon is inserted into the hull, and the completed laminate (hull stringer system) is then SCRIMPed. 

The patented SCRIMP process, an advanced, closed-molding, resin infusion technique, uses a strong vacuum to saturate or infuse the "sandwich" with vinylester resin in a single step. Marelon ball-valve type seacocks are then installed flush with the hull. The hull shell is supported by a combination of foam cored FRP stiffeners laminated to the primary hull, and structural bulkheads.

These materials and building techniques provide for a superior surface finish, greater resistance to osmosis, high degree of stiffness & stiffness/weight ratios, greater hull strength against impact damage, and thermal insulation.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Perhaps the most eloquent expression of the Hinckley power yacht, the Talaria 44 Jet is a stately presence in waters from Monaco to Maine. Her lines, drawn by Bruce King, are a study in the vernacular of Down East nautical design. Yet beneath her old-world elegance lies the newest, most advanced boat-building technologies. Her hull uses Kevlar and carbon fiber as part of Hinckley's innovative DualGuard composite construction. Twin Yammer 440 hp diesels and a jet propulsion system accelerate the T44 to a cruising speed of 26 knots with a top speed of 32 knots. With a mere 27-inch draft, unheard of in a boat of her size and capabilities, the T44 Jet rewards owners with that rarest of yachting pleasures - a peaceful anchorage, far from crowded deep-water harbors and marinas. Cruising range is 340 nautical miles, putting plenty of distance between passengers and civilization.
