VIDEO: Hinckley set to debut Talaria 34 Runabout

Hinckley’s product development team is touting a new Talaria 34 Runabout that is expected to make its debut this spring.

In a new video, Hinckley Boat Company’s product development team is touting a new Talaria 34 Runabout that is expected to make its debut this spring, putting the company on a growing list of those teasing their products online before they are formally introduced.

Hinckley is inviting customers to its Rhode Island facility to see the full-scale mockup of the new boat.

The builder said jet propulsion is designed to keep operations smooth despite plentiful power from twin Yanmar 320s. At wide-open throttle, expect 34 knots with proportional Jetstick II control. The Talaria 34R comes with a towing post for wakeboarding or tubing.

Hinckley product development director Scott Bryant walks potential buyers through the boat in a YouTube video.

Several companies have taken to teasing product introductions on social media and YouTube, from entry-level boats to yachts.
