ELISE is a 40’ (12.19m) Talaria 40, built and launched by yacht builder Hinckley and delivered in 2005. She was then repowered in 2012 with Volvo D6 435hp IPS drives. This vessel sleeps up to 2 guests in the large v-berth.

Full Description

ELISE is arguably the most versatile Hinckley Talaria 40 on the water. Her prior Owner, an avid fisherman, wanted a great-looking, refined Downeast-style boat that would be as comfortable entertaining family and friends as it would be raising fish offshore. In 2012, with the help of Rhode Island naval architect Mathew Smith, in-person Volvo Penta engineering, and Hank Hinckley, he set out to transform a well-loved T40 by replacing the standard jet propulsion system with the latest and greatest Volvo IPS drive propulsion system. The result is a transformation that tracks better, turns better, and has a more efficient midrange cruise than her jet-powered counterparts. She can also dynamically position herself (GPS Lat/Long) in one spot at the push of a button, a feature not only handy around the docks, but also while waiting for bridges, or watching an up-wind mark rounding during a sailing race. The further addition of outriggers (removable), rod holders, a baitwell, and a slightly modified cockpit allows for refined fishability not found in many boats.
