Hinckley Yacht Services recently completed service on the commercial yacht Valiant, owned by the Charles Riverboat Co.

Hinckley’s Portsmouth, R.I., facility serves boaters from across the Northeast, and Charles Riverboat brought the boat to Hinckley for hull paint and corrosion work, aluminum modifications and carpentry modifications.

“Hinckley’s workmanship and attention to detail was incredible. The staff was able to accommodate all of my needs, from exceptional finished carpentry to metal and canvas work. The paint job was spectacular, too,” Charles Riverboat president Russell Cushman said in a statement.
