Originally built in 1990 as a rare, direct drive (not jet) boat, Temptress was completely refitted from the hull up, over a two-year period from 2008 to 2010, to Hinckley standards of workmanship and design flair. This included installing a gourmet Galley, down.

In 2012, the twin 250 HP engines were replaced with Cummins factory remanufactured 6BT5.9M units, which still have only 200 hours use. At the same time the transmissions (ZF 220A) and running gear were replaced. She cruises at 20 kt, max 25 kt.

New electronics were installed in 2017: Garmin 7612 XSV Plotter, Radar, GPS, Sonar and Autopilot. She has OceanAir (dockside) A/C.

Appealing to discerning yachtsmen and women, who love classic boats, with a traditional direct drive-train, Temptress is a timeless, iconic Downeast design from the Master - Ted Hood. She is fully refitted and updated to be better than new, with mechanicals that are barely broken in, and completely updated systems.
