JUDITH R Hacker/ Robinson Marine 57 ft Twin Screw Commuter Yacht
22 Market Street
Restored with passion, skill, and not inconsiderable funds, the Long Island Sound Commuter Yacht JUDITH R is a remarkable exemplar in the history of the motor boat - both technically and in popular culture - and in her attributed designer John L. Hacker's place beside lifelong friend and client Henry Ford in the story of the successful application of the internal combustion engine. Moreover, typically of all classic yachts, JUDITH R remains a beautiful, tastefully upgraded piece of living, liveable, usable history. One imagines halcyon days spent aboard, cruising fast or slow, in the footsteps of not just first owner, Paramount Pictures president Barney Balaban - who used her to speedily and elegantly commute from Connecticut home to Manhattan office and named her after his daughter, Judith Rose - but also, one imagines, an impressive roster of stellar guests.
