CHIMERA represents an ideal combination of world-renowned craftsmanship from the Hinckley Company and the handsome lines and proven design characteristics from the board of John G. Alden Yacht Design. Upon stepping aboard, one will immediately be impressed with the attention to detail throughout and the pure beauty of her interior carpentry that boasts solid cherry raised-panel details on every surface. Her extensive equipment list is also second to none, including carbon rigs, hydraulic furling main, genoa and staysail, hydraulic winches, retractable bow thruster, air, generator, heater, water maker and much more.  Having just completed a major refit including all new rig, paint, teak decks, fabrics and canvas, CHIMERA is shining with pedigree and is without a doubt the finest yacht available in this size range.

ACCOMMODATIONS

HULL and DECK CONSTRUCTION

The hull and deck were laminated using the SCRIMP resin infusion process, creating a hull lamination that is completely uniform in the resin-to-fiber ratio, as well as complete adhesion of the balsa core material to the inner and outer skins. The SCRIMP process results in an extremely strong hull and deck structure. There are two watertight bulkheads – one forward of master head, and one at the aft end of master stateroom. The rudder and stock are carbon fiber, while centerboard is fiberglass with hydraulic lift arm. CHIMERA has a minimum draft of 6’6” with centerboard up and a maximum draft of 11’8” with board down.

Topsides are Flag Blue Awlgrip with gold leaf cove stripe, double white boot stripe and red bottom (all new 2015). Bottom and topsides were also re-faired in 2015.
