With her classic long overhangs, perfectly pitched sheer line, wide side-decks, graceful cabin profile, and distinctive near-vertical transom, the Bermuda 40 has inspired severe lust in the heart of many a cruising sailor. Designed by Bill Tripp, Jr., it is without doubt one of the most attractive production sailboats ever conceived. The B-40, as it is often called, was the very first fiberglass boat ever created by the famous Hinckley Company of Southwest Harbor, Maine, and was also one of several CCA-era keel-centerboard yawls built on a production basis.
Construction The Hull is solid fiberglass laminate. The Mark II models have solid glass decks. The strength of the deck joint is legendary. It consists of an inward flange half an inch thick and six inches wide that is both laminated and through-bolted. Hinckley crews reportedly spent two days on average making sure the fit between hull and deck was perfect before marrying the two parts together. All bulkheads are tabbed to both the deck and the hull.

All deck hardware is well bedded and mounted over generous backing plates, with stainless-steel machine screws tapped through the deck and into the plates to minimize the potential for leaks. The ballast is external lead, mounted on stainless-steel bolts at the front of the keel. The centerboard is cast bronze and is controlled by a very reliable worm gear with an override mechanism that permits the board to kick up in a grounding.
