HELIANTHUS is a very well maintained classic Hinckley SW 42 sloop. She was built (launched in 1986) with performance in mind with a fixed fin keel (draft 7') and reverse transom. She is easily handled with her Stoway mast and roller furling headsail. Always serviced and stored indoors at Hinckley and more recently Lyman-Morse Service. Many improvements have been made over the years, including new standing and running rigging, AIS, new Yanmar engine in 2011 (792 hrs), new Sea Frost 12v Marine refrigeration (2016), new red Awl grip paint (2019) and more. Currently in the water (Nantucket) and available for viewings by appointment.
HELIANTHUS (formally BODY HEAT) is a hand laid fiberglass boat with a cored hull (Airex). All high load/stress areas have been de-cored and are reinforced with several additional layers of fiberglass matt. The 6" hull/deck flange is glued and bolted in place.
Unlike other SW 42 models, HELIANTHUS has a reverse (racing) transom (making her 44' long) and deep fixed fin keel (7' draft.) with spade rudder. Her topsides are protected by rub rails (awlgripped to match hull) and topped with quarter-round stainless steel.
Her hull was recently re-painted (Awl grip) vivid red in 2020. Her deck and cabin sides are Oyster White gelcoat with molded in "Cloud Grey" non-skid. Her signature gold leaf cove stripe, double white boot top and red bottom paint complete the attractive performance look.
Like most SW models, a highly polished stainless steel stem iron adorns her bow and integrates the open chocks and anchor bow roller. A custom stainless steel bow pulpit houses the running lights and transitions to double lifelines to the mid-ship boarding gates and then to the custom stainless steel stern pushpit. The center of the stern pushpit can be opened for med-mooring and includes a custom stainless folding swim ladder with teak treads. Custom stainless steel stanchions are fitted with double lifelines from bow to stern. Custom stainless midship chocks are fitted in the high gloss varnished teak toe rails, and her cabin top provides varnished teak handrails and an attractive varnished teak eyebrow.
There are 4 opening overhead hatches along with the sliding companionway hatch and all are built with translucent acrylic for additional light. (4) Chrome plated Dorade vents are mounted on teak boxes and provide additional airflow below.
Two stainless steel genoa tracks are mounted to teak tow rail along with a second set of genoa tracks mounted inboard to the deck. Two flush-mounted deck prisms bring more light to her interior; one forward and one over the Nav station. Other on-deck features include:
- Custom ventilator in forward cabin hatch acrylic top
- 12 v outlet for spotlight in Dorade box
- Custom aft lazzarette hatch for lines, fenders and more.
- Aft deck shower with hot/cold mixing valve.

- The u-shaped galley is to port of the companionway, while the Nav station/desk is to starboard. Unlike most 42' sailboats, HELIANTHUS has tremendous access to her engine via a large mahogany louvered door just inboard and aft of the Nav table. This machinery/work space is well insulated and provides generous storage for spare parts, tools and access to equipment. An opening port light in the cockpit footwell provides natural lighting and air flow. Additional overhead lights are mounted above the engine and in the workspace. A small wet locker perfect for rain gear is just aft of the engine room door. All main breaker switches are bulkhead-mounted inside the door.

- The master cabin is located forward and includes a full head with unique large separate stall shower and seat. The cabin door was cleverly designed to enclose the cabin from the main salon or swing forward and double as a dedicated head/shower door. The master bunk comfortably sleeps two with v-berth filler in place. Access to the anchor locker is forward of the berth. 2 large mahogany louvered doors enclose the cabin's over-sized hanging locker to starboard of the head.
