2016 Hinckley T48 Motor Yacht

Oxford, Maryland


ORION - represents the culmination of a life-long boater’s vison combined with Hinckley Yacht’s custom-built ingenuity and flawless execution.   From the extensive option list filled with the most minute yet thoughtful details, to the simplicity of the Jetstick II operation, ORION must be experienced first-hand to be fully appreciated.  Her sought-after two-stateroom layout (each with own head) and lifting swim platform (complete with custom dinghy) ensure comfort, ample space, and the amenities necessary for cruising with two couples or a family onboard.  Her open layout and sliding aft doors open the space for comfortable daytrips and entertaining for many guests or simply two people.

ORION lives moments away from the Hinckley Oxford yard and completes a Jet Service Package each year.  Because of this high level of service, ORION conveys with the Hinckley Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) warranty providing seven years of jet and jet control (JetStick) coverage, like-new engine warranty with two additional years of major component coverage, and lifetime hull and deck warranty.


Stonington Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Hinckley Yacht Brokerage.
