2006 Hinckley Talaria 55 Flybridge

Southwest Harbor, Maine


SOLUTIONS is a stunning example of the flagship model of the Hinckley Talaria line. Originally built for an experienced yachtsman, she has been captain maintained since new and her current owner has continuously upgraded her and brought her back to like new condition with well over a million dollars in refit work over the last three years, much of it done by Hinckley Service in Southwest Harbor. Every part of the exterior has been refinished with the bottom stripped, new hull paint, new deck and flybridge Awlgrip, new cushions and varnish stripped and redone. Inside, upgrades to systems and refinishing of any surface not looking new have her in close to perfect condition.  Solutions presents as almost new and needs to be seen to truly appreciate her condition. A partial list of significant upgrades done in the last three years includes:


  • New Corinthia Blue Awlgrip hull paint
  • Deck and flybridge Awlgripped Cream
  • Bottom soda blasted, faired, barrier coated and new bottom paint
  • Pilothouse windows replaced
  • New electric OceanAir blinds for pilothouse side windows
  • New Garmin electronics
  • New stereos and entertainment systems
  • Cockpit redesigned with custom L-shaped settee and folding chaise lounge
  • New biminis for Flybridge and cockpit
  • New Cockpit and Flybridge cushions
  • New Sealift Hydraulic dinghy lift with removable davits
  • New Novurania tender
  • All exterior teak stripped and re-varnished
  • Cabin sole removed and refinished
  • New washer and dryer
  • New watermaker
  • New batteries and inverter
  • Major 1,000 hour service done on engines

Solutions has just finished a full winter service package at the Hinckley Service yard in Southwest Harbor, Maine and is ready to go for the season. Although it is often written in listings, this really is a boat that needs to be seen to appreciated.
