MODERATION” is the finest Talaria 48 to come on the brokerage market and represents a great opportunity to have one of these special yachts with immediate delivery. This vessel was built for an experienced cruiser and the custom details built into this vessel will be appreciated by anyone that come board MODERATION. This Hinckley is beautiful from her Flag Blue hull, perfectly maintained bright varnished Teak exterior to the coordinated interior colors. With her very limited hours of operation, fresh water past and fastidious maintenance make MODERATION the perfect choice for you next purchase. The comfort, size and cutting edge hull design of this boat separate her from the other Hinckley jet boats, yet she is easily handled with the Hinckley JetStick and draws very little water. The boat has been lovingly maintained and should be seen to be fully appreciated.
