Our founder Jack Hargrave started his career as a licensed captain back when he was still in high school and running a 42’ motoryacht every summer. He went on to be a top racing sailor around the world and later a project manager and builder. He knew better than anyone how important it is for the owner to have a happy crew and that is why Hargrave design yachts have always been a bench mark for not only addressing the owner’s needs, but the needs of the crew as well.
