General Details

KETCHUP is a 1985 Hinckley Sou'wester 51 with a lovely Stars & Stripes Blue Awlgrip (2007). This McCurdy & Rhodes design has moderate overhangs, efficient underwater foils and balanced sail plan to make it a formidable opponent in competition, yet she can be handled easily by a cruising couple. Over the course of ownership she has had many upgrades done to her and shows like a much newer yacht, right down to her Hall Carbon Fiber mast with in mast furling system, with Navtec rod rigging.


KETCHUP has 3 staterooms and 2 heads, Espar cabin heater, Vacuflush head, new refrigeration, Heart inverter, and a Westerbeke 70 diesel.   Her added extra deck hatches allow for plenty of ventilation.  She sleeps 9 in four cabins.

Hull stringers and longitudinal stiffeners are bonded to the hull and integrated with mast step and engine mounts. This past winter she had her whole bottom stripped, peeled, barrier coated and rebottom painted by Hinckley Yachts, Oxford, MD.
