Design & Build
Truly a reflection of the classic styling of J.B. Hargrave, “Lady Michelle” delivers graceful lines, a sturdy build, and superlative custom interiors. This raised pilothouse model has three cleanly proportioned levels that are both visually appealing and highly usable. The fly bridge with its custom hardtop and endless entertainment features speaks to the family oriented design of this vessel. The owners worked closely with the Hargrave design office to produce a yacht that met all their needs.
The large and elegant salon is divided in a traditional furniture arrangement with a separate sitting and formal dining area. American flat cut gloss cherry wood creates a gorgeous palette to which the owners and interior designer, Shelley DiCondina of Yacht Interiors by Shelley, added luscious fabrics, warm colors, and unusual textures. The spacious layout continues forward with the galley featuring superlative wood joinery, as every cabinet face is detailed with a continuous and seemingly uninterrupted Maitore inlay. Another notable feature is a Hargrave signature- the country kitchen arrangement with a u-shaped dinette. This galley appeals to both a professional chef as well as a family sharing in the joy of cooking together.
Below deck, the owner and guest accommodations are unrivaled with a three-stateroom layout and a separate crew’s quarters forward with two staterooms and a private lounge area. The master stateroom is truly a work of art with a centrally located, sumptuous canopy bed comprised of cherry with maitore accents, and set on a pedestal. Thoughtful customization throughout the entire yacht is demonstrated in such details as the use of fine granite and marble, amazing woodwork and crown molding, arched doorways, and European fixtures. This yacht blends custom design, superior construction, and function, exemplifying the Hargrave tradition of always striving for the next level of customer satisfaction.

“It goes without question that I would recommend you and Hargrave to anyone interested in owning and/or building a quality boat. You have been extremely sensitive to those issues that arise when undertaking a project of this magnitude.”
