ACCOMMODATIONS

The Hinckley Bermuda 40 provides accommodations for six in a single stateroom. Light filled layout thanks to her four large fixed ports, five smaller fixed ports and one opening port in the head, two very large hatches and three dorades add additional light and ventilation. All hatches and opening ports fitted with screens. Twelve volt lighting throughout with swivel style lamps at all settees and berths, and dome type lamps in working areas. 


TIMELESS is a full mahogany interior yacht with teak and holly soles and the preferred option of separate navigation station to starboard. Starting forward is the separate Stateroom, a 6'-6" v-berth with drawer storage below. Above the berth the hull is lined with varnished mahogany "ceiling" strips and there is a 3/4 length shelf. Aft and to starboard is a generous hanging locker. 


Next aft to port is the enclosed Head with athwart-ship running Corian vanity sink. Hot and cold pressure water, manual W.C. plumbed via a Y valve to the holding tank, ensuite shower with teak grate and curtain draining to a separate sump with pump. The port in this compartment has opening for better ventilation. 


The Salon features settees P&S with drawer storage under and in the seat backs and pilot berths above and outboard. Dining is from a drop leaf varnished mahogany table which houses the centerboard winch. Additional storage is in a bureau and locker forward and to starboard. 


The L-shaped Galley is aft and to port with excellent storage in several lockers and drawers. A large well insulated "icebox" fitted with 12 volt refrigeration and a small freezer compartment. Cooking is managed off a new Force 10 gimbaled three burner propane stove with oven. 


Opposite to starboard is the aft facing Navigation Station and seat with drawers and chart table with storage for chart kits and the conveniently located electrical distribution panels.  


There are 102 total drawers, lockers, storage cubbies, custom shelves, and brackets, a place for everything, in the interior.
