Hinckley Offers IPS on Talaria, Picnic Boat Models


Hinckley Yachts of Portsmouth, Rhode Island announced it will now offer boaters a choice when it comes to power options on its Talaria 48 and Picnic Boat models: Either the company's more traditional jet propulsion system, or the popular IPS pod drives from Volvo Penta.

"We felt strongly that it was time to offer boaters the option of choosing which system works best for their style of boating," says Hinckley president and COO Jim McManus. "The jets will remain our standard, but optionally IPS is now offered on the Talaria 48 and Picnic Boat, and will be offered on future models."

Hinckley has installed jets on all its powerboats for nearly 20 years. It promises to announce the availability of even more options before the fall 2013 boat show season gets underway.
