NEPENTHE was purchased by her current owners in 1998 and they have carefully returned this Classic Bermuda 40 to "excellent" condition.

Many years of upgrades, maintenance and repairs have this B40 standing tall and a must for your short list of Hinckley’s to see. The engine was completely rebuilt in 2008 and only run 200+/- hours since that overhaul was performed. The Herreshoff interior has recently been repainted, including the headliner, and the attention to detail work performed by Hinckley has this interior looking meticulous at 48 years old. All interior hardware was recently sent out for a fresh coat of chrome and the head was completely updated with new Corian countertops, sink, faucet and a custom fiberglass shower pan with integral drain. This is likely the only B40 on the market with modern shower pan and it is topped off with a custom Teak grate. NEPENTHE is a "must see" for anyone in the market for a Hinckley Bermuda 40.


NEPENTHE is a Hinckley Bermuda 40 Custom that is Yawl-rigged and has the B-40 standard 6-berth offshore layout. In 2012, she had a Hinckley interior and exterior make-over including a Vivid Red Awlgripped hull and Herreshoff-style finished interior. In 2008, her 1981 Westerbeke engine was rebuilt by Hanson Marine (now only 200 hours). NEPENTHE has the comforts of home including a Force 10 cabin heater.
