General Details

The OC-40 was built to a very high degree of quality by Hank Hinckley in Bar Harbor, Maine.  ASTRAEA is a beautiful example of the 40 and represents a very good value compared to a B-40. The boat has a larger interior than many 40 foot boats. She is a nice weekend cruiser, daysailer or blue water boat depending on the owner's desire - very versatile.

White Awlgripped topsides White gelcoat Deck with tan nonskid Double boot stripe Exterior teak trim Construction: Spoon bow and graceful stern overhang, the hull is built using handlaid woven roving and matt fiberglass resulting in unitized construction. The deck is permanently glassed to an integral wide-hull flange and then through bolted. The bulkheads are bonded to the deck and hull resulting in a strong hull capable of minimizing a grounding or collision. The hull-deck bond, which insures no movement in this critical joint also allows the even distribution of rigging, loads throughout the hull. Bronze seacocks are installed on all through-hulls. Long shallow lead keel incorporates a hydraulically operated centerboard (new piston 2000) and is attached with stainless steel keel bolts.
