Patriot was built in 2002 as the premier example of what the Hinckley Company can produce from a quality and aesthetic point of view. Many people view it as the prettiest large Hinckley sailing yacht ever built. In the fall of 2010 I sailed her off the coast of Maine in 40 knots of wind. She handled incredibly well and was a joy to be on. We achieved speeds in excess of 13 knots with reefs in both the main and genoa.
The layout of the boat is very comfortable with a great nav station to starboard and huge owners cabin aft.

This attractive sloop was designed by the offices of John G. Alden, naval architects of Boston. She was built by a joint venture with Eric Goetz Custom Boats of Bristol, Rhode Island producing the composite hull, deck and structure. The boat was then shipped to Derecktor Shipyards of Mamaroneck, New York who fitted her out with systems, machinery and joinery. She was launched in 1998.
Her current owners are very experienced yachtsmen and have spared no expense on her upkeep.
