A fabulous example of the 36' Hinckley EP, PIQUE-NIQUE is well maintained, updated and ready to go. 

She was repowered under Yanmar warranty with a 2007 Yanmar diesel (785 hrs.) Not uncommon issues seen with a boat this age include the Jetstick controls, leaky fuel tanks, sagging headliners, leaking hatch gaskets and older electronics.

PIQUE-NIQUE has those issues already addressed. In addition to the repower in 2007, the Jetstick controls were replaced with Control Systems Joystick technology in 2018. The owner of Control Systems is the original designer of the Rolls Royce Jetstick system used by Hinckley in the Picnic Boats and he personally installed the new system on the boat. The fuel tanks were replaced in 2019 as was the pilothouse and cabin headliners.
