Hinckely Yachts, known for its classic, seven-figure luxury picnic boats, is opening a new yacht service yard in Annapolis.

Hinckley Yacht Services already has a location in Oxford on the Tred Avon River. But the company says its new yard, on Whitehall Creek, is more convenient to the major metropolitan markets of Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

Hinckley says the new, four-acre yard can store and service up to 200 boats. With a depth of 12 feet, it’s accessible to boats up to 50 feet long. The Whitehall Creek location has a 35-ton Marine Travelift and hydraulic trailer. But you don’t have to own a Hinckley Yacht to be a customer:

  “More than half of our yacht care business comes from customers who own brands other than Hinckley.  From sportfish refits to outboard repowers, all customers benefit from our attention to detail, time-honored craftsmanship, and dedication to doing things the right way that has marked Hinckley’s 90 years of continuous operation” said Mike Arieta, Chief Operating Officer of The Hinckley Company.

Hinckley has hired Charlie Petosa to lead the yard. Petosa has extensive experience servicing high-end yachts including superyachts.

For more information about the Annapolis yacht yard, contact Charlie Petosa at (954) 218-2404 or cpetosa@hinckleyyachts.com.
