I know that people really enjoy the Lobster Boat style Down East boat but Hinckley Yachts has a long heritage in Down East Maine and one of their very first power boats was in fact a Lobster Boat. Anyhow, here is a picture of a recent refit project for a customer that owns a 44' FB Talaria that was originally powered with 2 x 440 Yanmar engines and had a top speed of about 26 knots at a displacement of 30k + lbs. Cruise was about 21 knots with the Yanmars and the customers were always complaining of smoke around the transom at the dock. We have repowered this boat with 2 x Tier 3 NEF 570's and Hinckley upgraded the customer to their new Jet Stick 2 control. The boat now has a fully laiden top speed of 36 knots and a cruise speed of 31 knots. The customer could not believe how smooth and quiet the helm area was. He made multiple comments about being able to carry on a normal conversation with someone in the cockpit area at 27 knots. The customer was/is very pleased with his purchase.
