Design 2604 - Bandera

Bandera is a custom 57' yawl built by the Hinckley Company and launched in 1994. The boat was designed and built for a circumnavigation by the owner's family which she completed within two years of her launch. She has been used by her owner and charter guests ever since between Maine and the Caribbean.

The boat has been undergoing a major refit at the Morris Yachts Service Yard which includes replacing defective core in her underbody. At the same time the decison was made to replace her skeg hung rudder with a carbon spade rudder. After a complete paint job, she is due to launch in a few weeks time.

Here's a shot of her interior.
