Hinckley is Rhode Island’s largest boatyard. Located just six miles from Newport,RI, we are the location that serious boaters rely on for boat repair, refit and yacht restoration. Says Captain Angus Fuller of the SV Matelot: “The standard of work by all the various trades at that yard is very high. The individuals concerned take a huge amount of pride in their work endeavoring to do the best job possible. It really is very impressive. I have personally cruised over 40 countries around the world and HYS rates as the best boatyard in terms of the work.”
