Picnic Boat 34 S

Hinckley invented an entirely new class of boat with the introduction of the original Picnic Boat nearly 25 years ago. Picnic Boats are open-air express yachts designed for relaxing and entertaining. The spacious, open-deck designs are ideal for lounging with loved ones or serving a small party of friends. Superior visibility while seated or standing, gives captains a more commanding view and a sense of connection to the environment.

Today, we offer the most refined iterations yet, all updated with state of the art systems and technology. Hull construction combines inner and outer layers of carbon laid bow to stern for incredible strength, durability and weight savings. A single infusion of epoxy forms a chemical bond for a lightweight hull of incredible strength and durability. Weight savings in the hull structure allow for the signature teak woodworking accents which are Hinckley hallmarks. The innovations in hull materials allow us to provide the luxury on deck and below deck which our owners and their families love.



When we developed the Picnic Boat 34, we didn’t just talk, we listened.  We heard boaters say that time is the greatest luxury.  That boats didn’t have to be grand to be great.  And that a system that goes unused is a system that should stay ashore.  With that, we reached forward for only those technical advances that would make a boat quicker, safer and quieter than ever before.  What we came up with is a boat that gives you just what you need to spend the perfect day on the water.


Maine wisdom holds that cockpits should be close to the water and coamings kept  low so traps can be easily hauled .  We agree.  Not so much for the traps you might be tempted to lay out, but for that closeness to the water and the natural way in which every Hinckley blends into its environment.  There is no better seat in the house than the transom settee.  Unless it’s one of the aft-facing seats where you can almost skim the water with your hand as you watch the coastline go by.

The joy of jets.

Twenty-two inches of draft.  Imagine that.  There is no telling what fun you might find in close to the beach or exploring a sandy cove.  As if the shallow draft, reliability and smooth operation of waterjet propulsion weren’t enough, there is this to love about jets:  safety.  Safety for you, your kids and sealife, too.  With no propeller blades to worry about, cannonballs off the swim platform are a lot less scary.

Here for you.

Every Hinckley comes with a warranty, but our commitment to you is so much more than that. On delivery, only Hinckley provides you with full training so you can operate your boat confidently and comfortably.   Hinckley backs each boat we build with a world-class service network where you will have a service manager who knows you and your boat and takes good care of both of you.  We are here 24/7 to help each Hinckley owner enjoy their precious time on the water just a little bit more.
