The Hick 39 ‘Envy’ is the ultimate day-sailer for 21st Century sailing. Designed and built by Robert Hick of infused resin corecell foam sandwich composite and launched in 2008, she mirrors the styling of increasingly popular European day sailing yachts. She incorporates all of the attributes of the perfect day-sailer; ease of use, exciting performance, high stability, low maintenance and stunning looks! Her Leisure furl boom, two speed Lewmar electric winches; easy tacking jib and fast acting hydraulics with remote controls for the single line mainsheet, the backstay and the cylinder vang make this yacht the ultimate in sailing simplicity.
The Hick 39 is remarkable in that you can step aboard, motor out of the marina under the 30 HP Yanmar sail drive, unfurl the Leisurefurl mainsail, hoist your jib and be sailing in just a few minutes. Packing up after your sail is just as easy. It really is that simple! Down below weight has been kept to a bare minimum with some bunk bases and storage for the occasional overnighter and there is an electric toilet.
Designed to take advantage of her high stability as a short-handed day racer, the Hick 39 has room enough on her laid teak decks and in her spacious twin wheel cockpit for ten or more to share the fun. She has recent Doyle composite sails comprising the furling mainsail, a light-medium jib a medium-heavy jib plus two asymmetric spinnakers. She is a very fast mid-week and twilight racer that has also performed well in club racing.
Just re launched after her annual anti-foul, service and polish, she is ready to perform. Now offered at a fraction of her build cost; if you seek high performance simplicity in your sailing, this is a yacht you must inspect.
