The 70-foot (21.41m) Hinckley sailing yacht PATRIOT is the queen of the Hinckley fleet. She was built to the highest specifications and offers thoroughbred performance with minimal crew.

PATRIOT’s classic Bruce King profile and glistening varnish turn heads in every port of call. Her interior, featuring a three-stateroom layout and raised panel-varnished Cherry furniture ensures quality throughout. PATRIOT’s pilothouse offers sumptuous comfort with 360-degree visibility. Her sail handling has been engineered to offer thoroughbred performance with only two crew. Indeed, PATRIOT is a yacht that presents like a palace and sails like a dream.

Her center cockpit is comfortable and well suited for entertaining and dining around the bright varnished teak table. It also offers convenient access to all sail handling controls and equipment. PATRIOT’s custom, removable helm seat provides excellent visibility and a comfortable perch. The cockpit easily adapts to all environments with a combination Dodger/Bimini framed in stainless steel with clear Stratoglass windows forward, removable panels forward port and starboard and side panels to create a complete enclosure.

The low-profile raised pilothouse is forward and just three steps down with a custom inlaid cherry table to port, seating for four to six and unrestricted visibility to the horizon. To starboard, PATRIOT has a full wet bar area with custom Deere Isle granite, plus a comprehensive entertainment center and varnished cherry cabinetry. The pilothouse is open forward to the professional galley and below the dining area with an inlaid cherry table. The navigation station/office is aft of the pilothouse to starboard. The open-plan pilothouse area aboard PATRIOT serves up a sense of spaciousness seldom experienced on a yacht of this size.

The full-width Owner’s Stateroom is fully aft with a centerline berth, custom circular seat to starboard, vanity and flat-screen TV forward and plenty of drawer and locker storage. There is an abundance of natural light and ventilation via overhead hatches and hull ports and the en-suite head with stall shower is forward to port.

Forward of the galley, PATRIOT has twin staterooms with oversized lower single berths and Pullman berths above that fold down to form a settee.  Both staterooms have Tempurpedic mattresses, hanging lockers, overhead hatches, portlights and en-suite heads that adjoin a shared stall shower.

The crew stateroom is forward with over-and-under single berths that convert to a settee, private access to the foredeck, an abundance of storage and a separate head with full stall shower.

  • Exceptional detailing, with a varnished teak low profile pilothouse and elegant Bruce King lines
  • Carbon fiber furling mast & boom by Hall Spars with hydraulic winches for simple sail handling and thoroughbred performance
