This Talaria 44FB is the pinnacle of elegance afloat, a yacht that exceeds even the normal high standards of Hinckley. Every detail was examined, (and in many cases custom designed and built), to make LIONHEART an aesthetic showpiece and the ultimate aquatic environment for high end entertaining. From her custom, concealed, push button bar and individualized storage for fine wines and stemware, to a galley literally built around select china and gourmet food preparation, this vessel exudes a five-star atmosphere. Finished in rubbed effect cherry and covered in sumptuous leathers, the salon is a place that begs one to linger and relax. The accommodations throughout, with built in sound and entertainment systems and custom fitted bedding and linens, make LIONHEART a floating "home on the water" that entices one to rearrange the calendar and explore bays and harbors that are beyond the reach of slow cruisers.

One of the most up to date Talaria 44's around and maintained in Hinckley's YachtCare Program, LIONHEART is equipped inside and out with technology mostly only found on newer Hinckleys. She has been heavily updated with recent new hull paint, faux wood transom, Garmin electronics, Cummins QSC 8.3 600 HP engines, Onan Generator, JetStick II with Heading Hold and H-Lock, cushions and fabrics, etc. Her varnish is flawless and her maintenance history is impeccable including a 1,000 hours engine service just completed.

There are lists of custom appointments and new equipment that will convey with the sale of LIONHEART making her a rare opportunity for someone who wants a boat that is ready to go tomorrow - a real alternative to a new build.
