Hinckley debuts certified pre-owned sales program

Posted on March 31st, 2017

Buyers of previously owned Hinckleys can now get what buyers of previously owned luxury cars have been enjoying for years: a certified pre-owned program that offers extended warranties and the assurance of knowing their purchase has been factory-maintained.

The first certified pre-owned Hinckleys were set to appear on the brokerage market this month.

“Many Hinckleys that reach the used-boat market have not only been built by Hinckley, but they have been maintained throughout their life by our own staff. We know these boats, we know that they’ve been properly serviced, we represent them in the marketplace, so our confidence in them is very high,” Hinckley CEO Peter O’Connell said in a statement. “Extending specific warranties to a new owner is easy for us, and it feels like a good way to welcome a new owner into our brand family.”

O’Connell made the announcement at the Hinckley Owners Rendezvous at Ocean Reef in Key Largo, Fla.

For a Hinckley to qualify for CPO status, it must have been serviced in the company’s seven service operations or in a yard authorized to service Hinckley products. The boat must then undergo inspection and be listed for sale with a Hinckley-owned sales office.

There is no program cost to the seller or buyer of the certified pre-owned boat.

Hinckley said the warranties the program provides vary according to the age of the boat. Platinum coverage — for boats less than five years old — provides a lifetime hull and deck warranty and a powertrain warranty for the balance of the original manufacturer’s, plus two additional years.

Gold coverage, for boats five to 10 years old, provides a hull and deck warranty for 12 years from the original date of build, plus two years of powertrain coverage. Silver coverage provides Hinckleys that are more than 10 years old with a one-year powertrain warranty.

“Hinckleys already retain their value well when resold and have among the lowest depreciation rates in the industry,” O’Connell said. “We think that the certified pre-owned program will further enhance value retention. Owners whose boats are about to come on the market as part of the program are excited about the prospects.”

Bill requiring boat titles likely pushed off to 2018 legislative session

A Georgia bill requiring boat titles is likely dead for this year’s General Assembly session, which ends Thursday, but it could return next year.

“We still need some additional work on the bill,” said Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville, on Wednesday. “We should hold the bill in committee, work with all interested parties and bring it back next year.”

The bill, sponsored by Miller in the Senate and Rep. Ron Stephens, R-Savannah, in the House, says “no person shall operate or give permission for the operation” of any vessel unless it is properly titled.

Boat titles would help deter theft and “create equity and fairness for the selling of vessels by dealers, brokers, agents, private parties and manufacturers,” the bill says.

The bill has been in the works for several years, pushed by Gainesville-based Lake Lanier Association.

A particular concern for the group is abandoned vessels and how to identify owners.

“Since the registration process doesn’t have the same legal authority as a title, we are hindering the effectiveness of our law enforcement agencies to hold the responsible boat owner accountable,” the association says in an information sheet.

LLA also has said that some lenders “are less willing to finance boat sales in a non-title state. That leaves fewer lenders willing to finance, which translates into less competition in this market and higher interest rates charged on boat loans to consumers.”

The bill has had trouble advancing in the legislature in past years.

The association says that while most of its members support the bill, most of those polled in other areas of the state are opposed.

“Those who took the extra step to (say why they opposed) cited ‘big government’ and new taxation as the primary (reasons),” the group said.

Joanna Cloud, LLA’s executive director, said the bill crossing from the House, where it passed on March 1, to the Senate “is progress from previous attempts.”

“The good news is that since we are in year one of a two-year cycle, (the bill) will stay alive for 2018,” she said.
