The Hinckley Company just opened a full-service yard and marina in Stamford, Connecticut, the first yard and fuel dock in that major city on Long Island Sound since 2011. It’s on four-plus acres at 2 Selleck Street on the West Branch of the Stamford harbor with direct access to the sound, and it has 12 feet of water at the fuel dock at mean low tide.
The new yard is the eighth for Hinckley, running from Hinckley’s iconic home base in Southwest Harbor, Maine, down to Florida. It has 25 slips in the marina plus heated indoor rack storage for 46 boats, an 80-ton TravelLift, a painting bay for boats up to 55 feet (using Awlgrip, Alexseal or many other brands), and it offers mechanical, electrical, brightwork, canvas, and concierge services. The yard’s technicians can work on all major marine diesels, plus pods, bow thrusters, windlasses and hydraulic systems. The Hinckley Stamford yard is an authorized installer for Seakeeper gyro stabilizers. And the yard works on all boats, not just Hinckleys.
“Stamford was really lacking a full-service boatyard, and that’s what we are,” says Peter Manion, the yard’s general manager. “You name it, we do it.” For more:
