overall 500

Twin shaft drive 80 HP electric motors provide strong acceleration that is unique. BMW batteries provide the energy. The helm instrument indicate and update the range available depending on weather, speed, and other factors to the skipper at a glance.

“The Hinckley Whisper Drive silent propulsion system combines the latest hydrodynamics, electric power and digital control systems to achieve the performance handling and maneuverability that discerning clients will expect,” said O’Connell, Hinckley CEO.

“Dasher accepts dual 50 amp charging cables, standard on most docks, so it can charge twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars.  Dasher gains a full charge in under 4 hours with dual 50amp charging.  Her cruising speed is 10mph with fast cruising at 18-27 mph.  Range is 40 miles at cruising speed and 20-25 miles at fast cruising speeds.”

This model features Hinckley’s use of Artisanal Teak, a lightweight hand-painted epoxy composite that has Hinckley’s signature varnished teak look without the weight or maintenance costs of traditional varnished teak wood.

 

 

The carbon-epoxy hull with carbon stringers was designed by Michael Peters from Sarasota, Florida. He designed a displacement, easily driven, 28′ 6″ by 8’7″ yacht that is very high tech but almost motorsailer-like in shape. Dasher gives excellent performance for 160 HP in a 6,500 displacement yacht.
