Rizzoli New York is teasing us with news that a new coffee-table book will be out in April. It's called Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon and will feature designs, photographs and more from the archives and modern times showcasing the builder's evolution since it opened its doors in 1928.

The hardcover book will retail for $65. It’s written by Nick Voulgaris III, who restored a Hinckley Bermuda 40 yawl that inspired him to undertake the writing and history project. The foreword is by philanthropist and Hinckley owner David Rockefeller, with contributions from Charles Townsend, CEO of Conde Nast Publications and a Hinckley owner, and Martha Stewart, best known as a TV host and book publisher.
