A 1960's photo of my father's (Ray Auxillou) Hideaway Reef Lodge on Caye Caulker (1st hotel on CC) and his boat, the Atoll Queen, also an ad for the lodge from Field & Stream 1973.
I spent many a childhood day on this boat cruising Belizean islands.

Atoll Queen had 2 Diesel (Volvo Penta) engines with double rudders in the back connected to each other from which we would steer the boat. There was a tall mast and a boom. 2 bunk beds in the back of the boat under a hutch and another double bed up front under the bow. Kitchen / dining / sitting area & toilet were under the main cabin where the 2 engines were also located.


My father had three boats (that I can recall), the Sailfish, the Atoll Queen, and the Buccaneer (just above). I helped build the Buccaneer, lol. It was his first fiberglass boat and it was built at Arthur Hoare's boatyard in Belize City when I was a young girl.
