Hungarian naval architect Andrew Davidhazy (19112003) graduated as an engineer, and then worked in shipyards and as a ship's captain, was a draftsman for the well-known yacht design firm of John G. Alden in Boston, and later designed tankers, tugs, and hydrofoil ships. The most unusual feature of the Heritage 20 is her extra-wide keel, big enough to contain a marine toilet (though we wonder how the waste is pumped uphill to a seacock without backflow, in the good old days before the advent of holding tanks). Best features: Perhaps it is no accident that the Heritage's shape bears a strong resemblance to the beauteous profiles of John Alden's designs, since her designer worked in the Alden office. Her curved stem and stern counter could be right out of an Alden style book. Pretty! Despite her shallow draft and tall rig, Heritage will probably sail better than her comps, none of which is deeper; her high SA/D will make her relatively faster in light air. Worst features: Even with the trick cabin sole, there's not much room below. Big and tall people beware!
