Sleeps four in two private ensuite cabins, plus two comfortably in the main salon. The interior is beautifully finished in bright high-gloss American cherry, with many customized details not found on any other Hinckley. All cabin soles are solid teak and holly, finished with high-gloss varnish (re-varnished 2016). There is tasteful upholstery throughout, with an assortment of throw pillows, and curtains with customized valances.
The owner’s cabin is forward and features a generous V-berth that converts to a double berth. There is an upholstered seat between the berths, a large cedar-lined hanging locker to starboard, eight drawers and numerous other storage lockers. A large opening hatch and portlight provide great light and ventilation.
The ensuite master head features a white countertop with a custom-painted sink. There is a Vacu-flush toilet with Y-valve, for discharge directly overboard or to a holding tank. Separate shower stall with teak seat and Plexiglass door, plus several lockers for linens and towels.
The main salon is a focal point of this yacht with its gleaming cherry joinerwork and full-beam layout. To port is a U-shaped dinette centered around a custom teak dining table with holly inlays and molded, rounded fiddles. One highlight is a Tiffany crystal sail sculpture in a suede-lined alcove. The center settee is extra wide for comfortable lounging and social connection to both sides of the salon. New second set of UltraLeather cushions and mast wrap throughout main salon (2016). To starboard is a full-length settee with numerous lockers, including an entertainment center for stereo and CD storage.
A full-function navigation station is aft of the starboard main salon and forward of the galley, featuring an oversized chart table and comfortable seat with removable backrest. All navigational instruments and electrical panels are within easy reach.
The functional U-shaped galley is aft and to starboard, adjacent to the main companionway, with generous counter space and abundant locker space. Main features are:

The private guest cabin is located opposite the galley, aft and to port of the companionway. There is a V-berth with filler cushion that converts to a large double. There is a bureau with three drawers, plus four additional drawers, a cedar-lined hanging locker and numerous other storage lockers.
The guest head can be accessed from either the main cabin or privately from the guest cabin. There are white countertops, a custom painted sink and lots of storage space. There is a Vacu-flush toilet, with Y-valve for discharge directly overboard or to a holding tank. A shower stall is separated by a bi-fold Plexiglass door. Portlight and opening hatch provide ventilation.
Hand-laid hybrid Kevlar/fiberglass hull, cored with Airex for additional strength per weight, reinforced with longitudinal stringers and additional gridwork in high-stress areas. The deck is built of a custom Kevlar S-glass, cored with variable-density Klegecell for exceptional strength as required by engineering specifications. The deck is set into a 6” flange in the hull and glassed and bolted into place.
During construction, strength was optimized and weight was absolutely minimized in all construction aspects of the yacht, in an effort to enhance overall performance. For example:
- All interior overheads are of Formica laminated to high-density Klegecell foam to reduce weight above the waterline
- Custom HRH stem iron welded rather than cast (saves nearly 30 lbs. at the bow)
- Custom Kevlar fabrication of lightweight foredeck locker
- Shelves in lazarette and sail locker of honeycomb plywood
- Scott flush-closing thru-hull fittings for reduced drag
- Custom low toe rails
In addition, for serious racing, the following can be easily removed/ reinstalled for conversion from cruising to racing:
- All Plexiglass shower doors
- Removable electric winch motors
- Removable autopilot
- Removable windlass and motor
- Removable stainless steel anchor roller
- Racing “Tuff Luff” foil with separate rod headstay
- Pipe berth fits port and starboard for racing
- Offshore covers protect all upholstery and cabin sole
The previous owner made significant improvements in 2005, with a change to a moderate draft (7’-6”) custom keel designed by Jim Taylor and a new elliptical high-aspect rudder (JP3 rudder bearing, full service in 2016) with all new bearings.
MOMENTUM is a beautiful boat, fully equipped and optimized for serious racing, family cruising or singlehanded voyaging. She has been extremely well maintained and upgraded since built which, combined with very light use, has left her in immaculate condition.
