Hathor has a wonderful, spacious, luxurious layout offering superb comfort with interior workmanship that is yacht finish plus.

It must be stated that many wonderful memories have been created for the owners due exclusively to the piano.


Aft of the Salon is the AFT CABIN, a superb feature of a trunk cabin yacht, yielding sumptuous accomodations with a centerline queen bed--made all that more comfortable by superb mattresses, and remarkable amounts of storage in drawers and closets.

The system can effectively chill one out of the boat.

HEAT: The Webasto heating units are separate from the Cruiseair system and provide heating through their own circulation system.

With Hathor, the heating system is similar to a boiler in a home using heating oil. Lots of heat and virtually unlimited but for the fuel carried aboard



Hathor was built to a spec so very few yachts could rationally be built to, due to her owner and builder interface, with the owners funds being almost without limitation. In the design process, the owner spelled out a fairly tall order for designers, to have a yacht with proper spaces, nearly stand-up engine room, easy access to systems, really voluminous storage, a stable hull not needing stabilization, reasonable speed with economical usage and reasonable range, comfortable living quarters for six, beautiful hull form, superbly attractive at the dock, etc., ad hominum.

The builder and designer, both considered by the way at the top of the hi end in both of their respective catagories, viewed Hathor as the queen of the fleet. Once finished, all involved realized they had a jewel of a yacht on hand and saw the success of the build. The initial plan was to create tooling but along came one economic crisis after another and the plans to build a fleet of Bruckmann 56's were scuttled.

What was not diminished however was the realization that Hathor's build as a project, was a sparkling success. She met or exceeded all of the needs and wants of the owner and she was seen by the marine business and the marine press as a phenomenal yacht in so many respects.
