Koenig’s First Take: At first glance this boat simply screams good use of space. Outdoors or in, I’d bet my bottom dollar Hargrave wrings all the juice out of this 101-foot LOA.
Few things say consistency like Hargrave Custom Yachts. For as long as most can remember the company has turned out sturdy, safe, and efficient vessels that know how to make their owners smile.
And this year, just like in so many years past, the venerable builder is introducing yet another new boat at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. This time she’s a Raised Pilothouse 101, a boat that promises to keep up the Hargave tradition of high-quality, well-received yachts.
Hargrave has been relatively tight-lipped about the new launch, but here’s what we do know. She’ll have a four-stateroom layout as well as a wide-open country kitchen that will allow the chef to interact easily with guests. My guess is this means the boat will have American owners, but that information is also being played close to the vest, perhaps not surprisingly. The interior will have a cohesive design put together by Yacht Interiors by Shelley.
The boat’ll also have burly 1,700-horsepower Caterpillars churning away in her engine room, as well as Naiad stabilizers to combat mal de mer. So it sounds like aside from being luxurious, this yacht will also be able to put in work when the captain calls for it. I wouldn’t expect any less from a Hargrave.
