The Hinckley Pilot 35 is a Sparkman and Stephens design whose popularity and utility continues to be appreciated today by discerning sailors for its beautiful lines, quality build and versatility on the water. The design is a timeless classic that is appreciated even more today by both yachtsmen and the general population for the beauty it adds to any harbor or horizon. The popularity and quality of the build speaks for itself as 117 Pilot 35's were built between 1962 and 1975 by Hinckley Yachts and continue to be sailed and lovingly maintained wherever wind and water combine.
SOLSTAND is a prime example of this classic design being maintained and upgraded by her owner for the enjoyment of his family and appreciation of her heritage. SOLSTAND hull and bottom are in beautiful condition with a dark navy blue awlgrip hull, clean white boot stripe and red smooth bottom. She features a set of new (2016) North Sail main and 145% genoa sails and a Yanmar diesel engine with only 624 hours. Her interior features a gleaming cabin sole, four berths in the salon, a fireplace and an owner's cabin forward with a double berth.
SOLSTAND is ready to be moved along to her next caretakers for their enjoyment and continued appreciation by family, friends and on lookers everywhere she is sailed.
