I own, and single-hand a Hinckley 49. It's a wonderful boat, and easy to handle alone (assuming good sailing / boat-handling skills).
Henry Hinckley designed the 49 for himself to sail and cruise with his wife. He was not a young man when he did this, so the boat is exceptionally well laid out for short crew. All of the winches lead behind the helm etc.
It is also the first Hinckley to have some real space, and I mean lots. It was used heavily as a crewed charter yacht back in the 70's and 80's. It sails well, but stops just short of being a motor-sailor.
Hope I have been of some help.
