2014 Hinckley Talaria 48 Flybridge

Barnegat Light, New Jersey


DARLING is a beautiful 2014 Hinckley Talaria 48 Flybridge, which was repowered and completely updated in 2022.  The new Volvo D13 engines only have 200 hours of use on them. New electronics were added, including the Garmin “glass cockpit” touch-screen navigation system. A SeaKeeper SK9 and a larger generator were added at the same time. 

Together, these improvements make this Talaria 48FB in like new condition at a fraction of the cost of a new build. A new owner will benefit from full warranties on major systems, including the engines, navigation system, generator and SeaKeeper and the latest in Volvo technology.  This lovely motor yacht is ready for immediate delivery so, don't miss the opportunity to see DARLING today.

This late model is an extremely well-appointed vessel that was built for a very discerning couple who created a true masterpiece. Her numerous options and amenities - like the revolutionary SeaKeeper , which virtually eliminates a boats undesirable rolling motion, upgraded 900HP engines which provide considerably more power than the standard 700 HP engines used in the original model, a larger fuel tank, potable water filtration system, a thoughtfully designed midship dinette that converts to a closed guest cabin, and a convertible pilothouse settee with sleeping accommodations- make cruising and entertaining a true joy. 

In addition, you will find many stunning upgrades such as custom high gloss finishes, upgraded galley and cabin storage, premium soft goods and enhanced lighting throughout.  The Talaria 48FB is the perfect cruising platform and her shallow 31” draft will allow you to reach the most secluded beaches and shores.

DARLING has always been Hinckley maintained and is current on all of her mechanical and cosmetic maintenance and includes our unique Hinckley Certified Pre-Owned program offering additional piece of mind with our extended warranty.  Schedule a private showing today with Hinckley Yacht Brokerage.
