General Details

CHARISMA is a classic sloop-rigged Mark III Hinckley B-40 in magnificent condition, with many upgrades in equipment, amenities, and personal enhancements. This vessel should be considered in sterling condition throughout.  It has been meticulously maintained and has been an eye-stopper in every boat basin and yacht club.


CHARISMA is in near show room condition, always Hinckley maintained and has never been in the water for more than three months of each year.  She has spent every winter indoors and has never been south of the Chesapeake.  In 1988, she went to the Hinckley yard for a refit and in 1996 was in storage for some restoration work.  She is a beauty.
