DUET is without doubt in the best-condition of any Hinckley 59 on or off the market; she is turn-key and ready to sail.

In 2017 she received an extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration by the renowned Dodson Boatyard in Stonington, CT. Everything from the keel to the
top of the mast was replaced or refurbished inside and out, making the boat virtually new.
She has fresh Awlgrip topsides, cabin, decks, mast and boom and flawless varnish throughout.
All equipment was replaced with new, including a completely rebuilt Perkins motor from Trans-Atlantic diesel with 20 hours total running time. The bottom was stripped, barrier coated, and painted with all new running gear. A new Side Power bow thruster was installed.

New electronics, including a touchscreen Garmin GPS/ radar/AIS at nav station and cockpit were added. Additionally, a new Garmin autopilot was installed. The Garmin radar dome is mounted on a custom stainless platform from Kato Marine.

DUET has a beautiful ash interior unique to Hinckley Yachts. She has a spacious three-cabin layout that has been completely re-varnished and repainted, from the bilges to the ceilings, with all new countertops, sinks, faucets, microwave, stove, toilets, plumbing, hot water heater, cushions, upholstery and curtains. The list goes on and on.
