Accommodations & Layout:
"Fitz Sea V" is one of the finest Picnic Boat EP (Extended Pilothouse)’s built with the highest level of refinement. She was build for a multi-time Hinckley owner who was able to get the boat equipped and set up “just right”. She features the “common rail” Volvo 435 hp engine which provides great power, but is smooth and produces significantly less emissions than earlier engines.
During her short life, she has always been Hinckley maintained and used only seasonally. In addition to the Volvo engine, she features an air conditioning system that can be run either while away from the dock or at the slip plugged in.
She sleeps two comfortably forward in V-berths and includes a head with shower, and a galley. An L-shaped settee with table and two forward facing Stidd seats are in the pilothouse. This 2008 model features a transom door with a filler piece to provide full seating across the transom, and a custom 1 ¼”extended Stainless Steel bow rail.
