Hat53 vs Tolly53

Hello all,
Need some help on comparing the Hatteras 53 MY vs the Tollycraft 53 MY. I am very knowledgeable on what the Hatteras has to offer, but how does the Tollycraft compare. I am mainly referring to seaworthiness and hull strength.
We are in the market and have determined that the Hatteras is the one, but the wife(boss) found a 1993 Tollycraft 53 MY and fell in love with the layout. I will admit it was pretty impressive but as you all know, impressive interior doesnít mean it wonít sink when you slam you hull aground.
Any help would be great.
