The Hinckley Company chose Goetz Boats to build and supply the flybridge component of its new Talaria 48.

The parts will be built in prepreg carbon fiber, embodying the leading-edge technologies and the highest levels of finish that are inherent in every Hinckley yacht, Goetz said.

"By utilizing the same technology we used to build the structure of the BMW Oracle trimaran that won the 33rd America's Cup, the flybridge will be lighter and stronger than conventional layups," the company added.

Seven new T48s have been sold to date.
