Hinckley starts certified pre-owned program

ADVERTISEMENT

Buyers of previously owned Hinckleys can now get what buyers of previously owned luxury cars have enjoyed for years: a certified pre-owned program that offers extended warranties and the assurance the boat has been factory maintained.

Hinckley CEO Peter O’Connell made the announcement in March at the Hinckley Owners Rendezvous at Ocean Reef in Key Largo, Fla. The first certified pre-owned Hinckleys appeared on the brokerage market soon after.

For a Hinckley to qualify for certified pre-owned status, it must have been serviced by the company or in a yard authorized to service Hinckleys. The boat must then undergo inspection and be listed for sale with a Hinckley-owned sales office. There is no program cost to the seller or buyer.

Warranties provided by the program vary according to the age of the boat. Platinum coverage, for boats less than 5 years old, provides a lifetime hull and deck warranty and a powertrain warranty for the balance of the original manufacturer’s warranty, plus two additional years. Gold coverage, for boats 5-10 years old, provides a hull and deck warranty for 12 years from the original date of build, plus two years of powertrain coverage. Silver coverage, for boats more than 10 years old, provides a one-year powertrain warranty.
