Broker's Comments

WANDERER is a lovely, classic Hinckley that is owned by an avid sailor who has kept her in excellent condition since taking possession of her in 2016. In addition to having had a proactive, knowledgeable owner, WANDERER has had the benefit of having had a highly experienced, part-time captain, as well as work done in very respected yards. She is now for sale due to the owner and his family no longer having the time to use her. A new owner will reap the rewards of buying a lovely, pedigree traditional sailboat with many significant upgrades. Currently located in Maine and available to be seen with prior notice.
