The Hinckley Company hired industry veteran Nick Bischoff to lead sales of its Hinckley sailboats and powerboats and Hunt Yachts.

Hinckley said Bischoff, who was named vice president-sales, brings 20 years of experience to the role. He has held similar positions at Sunseeker, Tiara and Allied Richard Bertram.

“Nick will be responsible for the leadership of the Hinckley and Hunt sales organizations and expanding distribution opportunities,” Hinckley president and CEO Jim McManus said in a statement.

The sales group currently consists of 19 brokers and two independent agents at 10 U.S. locations.

Hinckley Yachts and Hunt Yachts are built in Maine and Portsmouth, R.I., where the company has its headquarters. Bischoff will operate from Rhode Island and believes the two brands are poised for continued growth.

“I am pleased to join such a storied company,” he said in a statement. “From the legendary yachts Hinckley has created over decades to the genius of Ray Hunt, the reputations of these two brands are firmly rooted. But importantly, the innovation, new product development and unparalleled customer service throughout the ownership lifecycle keep them in the forefront of the industry.”

Bischoff is a graduate of Springfield College and he lives in Cambridge, Mass.
