2002 Hinckley Cruising Sloop

Sag Harbor, New York


The Hinckley Sou’Wester 70 is the Queen of the Hinckley fleet and without question, PATRIOT is the best of her breed.  Built to the highest possible specification of her day, beginning with an infused, cored composite hull and deck with variable density foam core for optimal strength and adhesion, her three-stateroom plus crew interior is furniture quality throughout, her pilothouse offers sumptuous comfort and 360 degree visibility and her sail handling has been engineered to offer thoroughbred performance with minimal crew.  Indeed, PATRIOT is a yacht that lives like a palace and sails like a dream. 

She has been cruised extensively on both sides of the Atlantic and always maintained with an eye to preventative maintenance.  PATRIOT is in turn-key condition, ready to cruise all oceans.

The Hinckley Sou’Wester 70 is the Queen of the Hinckley fleet and without question, PATRIOT is the best of her breed. Built to the highest possible specification of her day, beginning with an infused, cored composite hull and deck with variable density foam core for optimal strength and adhesion, her three stateroom plus crew interior is furniture quality throughout, her pilothouse offers sumptuous comfort and 360 degree visibility and her sail handling has been engineered to offer thoroughbred performance with minimal crew. Indeed, PATRIOT is a yacht that lives like a palace and sails like a dream.


PATRIOT’s on deck arrangement is practical in all respects and elegantly detailed in natural and varnished teak. Her center cockpit is comfortable for entertaining and dining around the bright varnished teak table, while offering convenient access to all sail handling controls and equipment.
The cockpit is fully protected from the elements with a combination Dodger/Bimini, framed in SS and covered with Linen Sunbrella, with clear Stratoglass windows forward and removable Stratoglass panels forward port and starboard.
Additional clear side curtains create a complete and comfortable enclosure. Indeed, PATRIOT’s helm and entertaining cockpit easily adapts to all environments.

The aft deck has access to the large lazarette and tri­fold passerelle, with man­overboard and safety gear stowed on the stern pulpit.

Side decks are clear and uncluttered, as is the foredeck, with removable staysail stay, double bow roller and windlass, and custom bow seat in the forward pulpit.


The low profile raised pilothouse aboard PATRIOT is directly forward of the cockpit, three steps down, with a retractable window that helps to create a contiguous entertaining area. In addition, there are three opening hatches in the pilothouse and large grey tint windows all around which in sum, create an abundance of natural light, ventilation and unrestricted visibility.
Outboard to port is a large U­shaped dinette with custom table with ‘PATRIOT’ inlay in the varnished cherry, complimented by a border of inlaid, carved roping. To starboard is a full wet bar area with inlaid Deer Isle granite countertop, retractable TV and complete audio entertainment equipment.


The forward pilothouse windows extend well beyond the four steps down to the Main Salon to starboard and the Galley to port, which creates a perception of spaciousness seldom present aboard a 70’ yacht.
The salon is centered on a U­shaped custom pedestal Sapele Mahogany table and lounge area to starboard, with a hull port outboard between additional lockers and bookcases.


The U­shaped Galley is outboard to port, with flush mounted refrigerator, freezer and microwave on the aft bulkhead lockers, shelving and portlight outboard with Corian countertops outboard and forward. This is a professionally equipped galley, elegantly detailed. Open to the pilothouse with large windows above, the natural light and air­flow in PATRIOT’s galley is exceptional.
