A cruise on NCEF Trustee’s Debbi & Bill Cary’s 37-foot Hinckley yacht, Tesoro, for four (4) people
Dinner with Debbi & Bill Cary at Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club for four (4) people

Hinckley yachts combine beauty and durability, two qualities not usually found in tandem. Born in Maine in 1928, Henry Hinckley’s boats had to withstand rough seas—and at the same time, he wanted them to make an aesthetic statement. He was among the first to use fiberglass rather than the traditional oak, which saved weight while adding strength and maneuverability. Enthusiasts have a saying for it: “Nothing looks like a Hinckley and nothing handles like a Hinckley.”

Of course, much depends on who is guiding the boat, and you can’t do much better than the firm hand of Bill Cary. A retired senior vice president of General Electric, Bill is currently a private equity investor and advisor to a range of companies. He and his wife Debbi are active Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation and are involved in charity work both here and in the Napa Valley.

The winning bidder’s party of four will enjoy the best of both sea and land: a cruise on the Cary’s 37-foot Hinckley yacht, the Tesoro, followed by dinner at the Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club.

INSIDER’S INFO: Sunset cruise is valid only in Naples, Florida and is to be booked for a mutually agreeable date. Package expires on January 31, 2021
