General Details

McHAPPY is an outstanding example of the rare and beloved Hinckley Talaria 44 Motoryacht. This is the only Motoryacht available on the market today.  Finished in 2008, she features all the “right” equipment and has been lovingly cared for her entire life.  Given her condition, this boat will not be on the market long.


McHAPPY is a special Hinckley T-44 Motoryacht offered at a very good price. She was built for a knowledgeable Hinckley owner who was able to "tweak" the boats specification to ensure she was fully optimized for family and friends. She has always been maintained to a high level by an outstanding captain as well as the Hinckley Service Department. She is kept on a boat lift during the season and then inside during the summer months to ensure she stays looking great.   *Name reserved.
