1959First launched as a yawl in 1959, the Bermuda 40 is regarded by many to be the quintessential example of the masterful eye of the late yacht designer William H. Tripp Jr. In addition to being one of the most successful and attractive production sailboats ever conceived, hull #1 was the first fiberglass yacht built by Hinckley. The B-40, as she became known, helped to establish The Hinckley Company as the premier North American builder of exceptional quality fiber-glass sailboats.

When introduced, the B-40 represented the state of the art in offshore sailboat design and con-struction materials. Originally designed to race under the CCA rule, she later competed success-fully under IOR winning many of North Amer-ica’s important races. Numerous yachts opted for cruising and some have circumnavigated the globe. With her classic lines, long overhangs and perfect shear, the B-40 has withstood the test of time and indeed achieved classic status.

In all there were 203 Bermuda 40’s built with the last boat being launched by Hinckley in 1991. She was in production longer than any other fiber-glass yacht and was inducted into the American Sailboat Hall of Fame in 1995.

The Hinckley Bermuda 50 is a modern auxiliary sloop that captures today’s sailing spirit in both looks and performance. At the same time it embraces the breathtaking lines that have made Hinckley yachts the benchmark for beauty for decades. Designed to be competitive in club racing or in offshore competition under IRC and ORA rules, the B-50 will excel in a broad range of events from regatta race weeks to the Bermuda Race.

Utilizing modern materials, high tech construction techniques and the latest in sail handling systems, this versatile sloop can be comfortably handled by a couple, but will also easily accommodate a family, or another two couples for safe, luxurious, performance cruising. With a hydraulic lifting keel the B-50 will access shallow anchorages from the Chesapeake to the Bahamas, and will sail swiftly from harbor to harbor even on challenging offshore passages.

The B-50 is a modern-day evolution of clean lines with unmistakable Hinckley elegance. This is the Hinckley that will define dual purpose sailing for generations to come, in much the same way as its predecessor, the Bermuda 40 did when it first came to life more than a half century ago.


55 Years Later

Page 4: Hinckley Bermuda 50 Brochure

Not often in a lifetime do you get the opportunity to “walk down the same road” your father did some 55 years earlier and to be a part of perpetuating a heritage. I am a lucky man.

In 1958 my late father William H. Tripp Jr. was commissioned by Henry R. Hinckley & Company of Southwest Harbor, Maine to design a thoroughly modern 40’ yawl that would be certain to turn heads and invoke comment when sitting on a mooring while being a serious contender and perform with good manners when sailing offshore. And so the Bermuda 40 was born.

Fast forward to 2013. Tripp Design Naval Architecture has been challenged by The Hinckley Company to design a worthy successor to my father’s most famous design. And so the Bermuda 50 is born.
