SOUTHWEST HARBOR, Maine — One of Maine’s best-known boat builders is launching the first yacht in a new line of luxury motor vessels.

The Hinckley Co. will be launching the first yacht of its Talaria T48 series Wednesday at its boatyard in Southwest Harbor.

The 50-foot yacht is modeled after the original Talaria series of boats, which resemble swanky versions of traditional Down East lobster boats. The T48 has a redefined hull and can cruise at 30 knots while drawing only 32 inches of water.

Gov. Paul LePage will be on hand for the launching.
