PEMAQUID is a solid example of the popular Hinckley Sou’wester 42 Series, designed and equipped to serve either as a safe and comfortable base for extended cruising or as a handsome daysailer around the bay. Her current owners have sailed her for about twenty years, using her only lightly each summer in New England and storing every winter under cover. PEMAQUID has also benefited from many upgrades with her current owner, including relatively new engine, electronics, canvas, sails and cushions. She also has many other desirable features such as generator, air conditioning and cabin heater. Priced well below others on the market, PEMAQUID offers exceptional value for one looking for a high-quality, pedigreed sailing yacht. Recent survey available (2017).
