The Sou'wester 42 is a timeless model within the Hinckley lineup, one that has been admired for its beauty and sailing characteristics around the world. CAVU is Hull #68 of 77 built and is appointed, equipped, and maintained to the highest standards. Custom-built for a multi-boat owner and life-long sailor, CAVU has been meticulously maintained with an open checkbook since her launching. CAVU has only been used seasonally in New England waters and her stem-to-stern upgrades make her an excellent alternative to a new build.
