2008 Hinckley Talaria 38R Convertible

Harbor Springs, Michigan


UNDER COVER is a classically styled Talaria 38 Runabout Convertible, and has been kept in fresh water and under cover in a boat house for 4 months of the year, and undercover in a heated barn for the rest. She is a one owner, very low hour vessel, gets washed three times per week by a professional crew, and shows “AS NEW”.  Under Cover is certainly the finest 38R on the market today.
