General Details

MOONDANCE is a nice Hinckley 43 sloop. Her large “U” shaped Dinette layout with full navigation station and large galley make this a very comfortable interior.

MOONDANCE has the Hood stowaway roller furling main sail system and a roller furling head sail. The shallow draft at 4’4” with the board up is ideal for Florida and the Bahamas. The Hinckley 43 has a low profile cabin top and wide side decks for excellent maneuverability on deck, this design has performed very well on the racing circuit.

This Hinckley 43 is a great cruiser or live aboard.
