Hinckley introduces OutboardCare & Standardizes Hunt Yachts Coastal Series on Outboard Power

Portsmouth, RI (October 3, 2019) — The Hinckley Company today announced Hinckley OutboardCare, the industry’s pinnacle outboard repower and care program. The new program from Hinckley Yacht Services is focused on helping owners of any make or model yacht repower to the latest in outboard technology from Mercury Marine, Yamaha, and other outboard brands.
