Tripp 53 Pilothouse “Alchemy”
The latest boat to be announced out of Maine will have an Offshore Spars carbon rig package. Drawn up by Tripp Design, this boat will be produced as a consortium of a few well known Maine yards. The hull will be produced at Hinckley Yachts in Trenton, Maine and will feature the classic Hinckley stripe and logo. The deck and deck tooling will be produced at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine. The two will be mated together at Brooklin Boatyard where the interior, systems and finish work will also be completed.
The spar package will feature a three spreader, standard modulus mast with Nitronic 50 rod rigging. For mainsail handling, the owner has chosen 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.
