AVA MARIE is a 2001 Hinckley Talaria 44 Express in extremely good condition and kept on the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay.  Her meticulous owner stays on top of maintenance, upgrades and custom touches to ensure this Hinckley performs when needed and shows as a Hinckley should.  Her owners run her frequently ensuring all systems function properly.  She is in the water in Annapolis, MD and easily shown with little notice. 


Her large and airy pilothouse flows into the spacious aft cockpit, yet can be enclosed off with curtains for climate-controlled comfort.  Below she features a full galley and U-shaped dinette that converts into a second berth.  Forward is the master stateroom with centerline queen berth and the head features a separate shower compartment.  The shallow draft and JetStick control system make her very versatile and simple to operate.

  • Yanmar 420hp engines
  • Modified teak package
  • Gelcoat non-skid decks
  • Espar diesel heater
  • Dinette layout (with convertible berth)
  • Simrad electronics

  • Custom cockpit covers for seats and tables

CONSTRUCTION: DualGuard Composite Construction and SCRIMP (vacuum bagged) process. Hinckley's DualGuard construction has a skin coat of chopped E-glass mat in low shrink vinylester resin, an outer skin of Kevlar/E-glass, a core of segmented end grain resin-infused aircraft grade balsa and high-density foam, and an inner skin of carbon fiber.


In such areas as the hull/deck connecting flange, jet intakes, and all through-hull fittings, the core is eliminated and the hull is reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass. A reinforcement stringer system is inserted into the hull, and the completed laminate (hull stringer system included) is then SCRIMPed. The patented SCRIMP process, an advanced, closed-molding, resin infusion technique, uses a strong vacuum to saturate or infuse the "sandwich" with vinylester resin in a single step. Marelon ball-valve type seacocks are installed flush with the hull. The hull structure is supported by a combination of foam cored FRP stiffeners laminated to the hull, and structural bulkheads.


These materials and building techniques provide for a superior surface finish, greater resistance to osmosis, a higher degree of stiffness and stiffness/weight ratios, greater hull strength against impact damage, and thermal insulation.



  • Pilothouse roof has a custom Hinckley mast (painted to match house) that supports the anchor/steaming light, antennas, air horn and aft deck flood light

  • Custom removable kayak/paddleboard rails connect to the pilothouse handrails

A remote deck hand held control for the anchor windlass as well as control at helm station makes anchoring this boat uncomplicated.
