1969 Hinckley 48 Yawl

Portsmouth, Rhode Island


A Hinckley classic.  Desirade was designed by William H. Tripp and built by Henry R. Hinckley & Co. in Southwest Harbor Maine, USA.  This yacht boasts the beautiful lines of Hinckley, thoughtful layout of a world cruiser, and the strength of American craftsmen.  


Desirade has cruised the entire east coast of the US and Caribbean.  She has recently arrived back to her home of New England and the owner is looking to find her a new home who will carry on the traditions of cruising and exploration of new territories. Her first owner wrote the book Broad Reach, telling his tale of his cruising aboard her.
