Tripp 53 Pilothouse “Alchemy”
Drawn up by Tripp Design, this boat was produced as a consortium of a few well known Maine yards. The hull was produced at Hinckley Yachts in Trenton, Maine and features the classic Hinckley stripe and logo. The deck and deck tooling were produced at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine. The two were mated together at Brooklin Boatyard where the interior, systems and finish work was also completed.
The carbon fiber rig package from Offshore features a three spreader, standard modulus mast with Nitronic 50 rod rigging. For mainsail handling, the owner selected our very popular Electric Furling Boom, which features a carbon fiber boom shell and furling mandrel. The electric motor for the furling function is housed within the inboard end of the mandrel which keeps the weight of the motor close to the gooseneck and offers a very clean, low maintenance solution.
