Hinckley DS42 Mark II Sailboat

We provided consulting engineering services to the Hinckley Company for the first fixed-keel model (Mark II) DS42. This world-class daysailer/weekender combines space-age technology with traditional styling and workmanship. Construction was completed in the summer of 2007 at the Hinckley yard in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Burke Design performed the structural calculations in accordance with ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) standards, and provided engineering drawings and production support during the lamination of the resin-infused Kevlar/carbon/vinylester hull and E-glass/vinylester deck, the fabrication of the keel, and the assembly of the yacht’s components.
