The Hinckley Company has announced that Hinckley Yacht Services Stamford is now open for business and hauling yachts for winter storage. Peter Manion (pictured), who has joined Hinckley as the General Manager of the Stamford, CT yard, will report into Chief Operating Officer Mike Arieta in Portsmouth, RI. The facility has lifting capacity up to 80 tons, indoor heated rack storage for 46 boats, 25 fully equipped slips, a fuel dock and pump out station, and offers a variety of repair services.
A two-time member of the US Sailing Team, Manion has a long history servicing high end yachts, with Derecktor Shipyard in Mamaroneck, NY as lead service manager and with Brewer Yacht Haven Marina in Stamford, CT and Oakcliff US Sailing Center in Oyster Bay, NY. “We are excited to open in Stamford our seventh yacht service location in the U.S.,” said Manion. “The New York metropolitan area is an important market for us and a wonderful opportunity to extend our service relationship with our customers. We service both Hinckley Yachts and other brands at the absolute highest level in the industry.”
Headquartered in Southwest Harbor, ME, The Hinckley Company’s roots are deep in soil of Maine boatbuilding. Hinckley builds Jetboats and sailboats from 29 to 55 feet and supports its owners and other yachtsmen with its network of service yards from Maine to Florida. Two other distinguished boat builders, Hunt Yachts and Morris Yachts, were acquired in 2013 and 2016 respectively. Visit hinckleyyachts.com to learn more.
