We recently bought the Moonshadow  (September 2023) and now preparing for a refit this winter.

An extensive list of items to be renewed, altered or upgraded has been made. 

The original interior has to be altered for more comfort. We try to do this with respect for the original plan and details to maintain it's “Hinckley” identity. Furtermore all navigation equipment has to be renewed.

We will post more about the refit this winter
