NIRVANA is a very unique 1972 Hinckley 49 Cutter with a 4foot' transom extension modification installed by the Hinckley boat yard in 1985. At that time, she was also modified to a Cutter rig with a 63'11" mast height and increased sail displacement ratio to 15.6.  She is a solid fiberglass hull, center-cockpit, aft-cabin, keel/centerboard 53 foot sailboat. This Henry R. Hinckley design with an aft cabin "owner's cockpit" can serve as an agile Motorsailor and has top speed capability under sail.
This was Henry Hinckley's personal boat. The design changes and construction were personally directed by him.
She is way below market value and priced way below what her condition would warant.

Overview of Nirvana
NIRVANA was extensively modified in 1985 by Mr. Hinckley himself, changing her from a Ketch rig to a Cutter, and increasing her mast height to 63' 11" enabling her to carry 1123 sq/ft of working sail, and raising her sail displacement ratio from 12.5 to 15.6.
 The hull was modified and increased the length of the boat from 49' to 53' with a transom extension. Additionally, a powerful bow sprit was also incorporated into the hull plan. The result is a superb long distance cruising sailboat with excellent sailing performance. 1992 Refit at Hinckley including a new 12.5 kW Westerbeke generator and sound shield.
