There's no way that's a 40 foot boat...

I'd say so, too. From Hinckley's website, Sou'wester 42. Look very similar to my untrained eye...



And, almost off topic here, I've never seen a Hinckley that I didn't think was gorgeous.

Peace,

My pleasure.

I must say though, I thought that the similarity between the two pics was a strange coincidence.

Red face found it

Looks to be pirated from the Hinckley web site.
Hinckley - SW52 Gallery
Since there is a copyright symbol on that page, one wonders if the site referenced paid for the image or not.

Back about 12 years ago, Hinckley used to have a wallpaper d/l section on their own site. I still have some great hi-rez shots of their boats in my desktop pic file from those days. I did not notice this feature when looking around their site today. (?)

You would think that if you spend about a million on a boat they would install a gimbal radar dome.
