Custom and Quality that exceeds your greatest expectations
New, as in new yacht, doesn’t mean exactly the same as new means in new car. At Hargrave Custom Yachts there are actually three definitions for new yacht:
1. a new build ready for delivery,
2. a custom yacht where the owner participates in the development, and
3. a new construction based but modified from another custom construction.
A new owner can actually participate in the creation of his or her own dreams – a truly, new yacht. Hargrave Custom Yachts is unique in that aspect because we welcome the chance to build it in conjunction with a new owner.
Second, if you prefer immediate gratification, we can show you high-quality, fully customizable new yachts, ready for immediate use, and then fulfill the custom designs or special needs adaptations you want to see included. Hargrave makes that choice yours.
A unique experience for any hands-on owner
Building a yacht from first component to its last is not for everyone, but Hargrave Custom Yachts can give you the chance to be in control. You can assume the role of master designer. Hargrave will make it easy for you to do so. In fact, Hargrave makes it so easy and stress-free that over 50% of those who have experienced building their own, full-custom yacht have returned to us to do it again. Hargrave Custom Yachts specializes in building yachts in the 70-foot to 130-foot range, fully customized, and with exacting quality at every stage. They are the partner you want when you become the master designer. That’s another way we can exceed your expectations.
With the right partner, hands-on can be easier than you think
When a new owner decides to build a yacht with us, he participates from the very first clean sheet of paper, to the laying of the keel and through to the hoisting of the owner’s pennant. Hargrave Custom Yachts is unique in the industry in that we welcome new owner participation at every step of the construction. We are dedicated to building it exactly the way the new owner wants it – all options are on the table. We like it that way. Obviously our customers do, too. The majority of them keep coming back.
Just because you didn’t build it doesn’t mean it can’t be your custom yacht
For others, the early stages of the build are not for them. New, to them, means no one has owned it before, but it is also ready to take away now. Hargrave Custom Yachts provides that solution as well. Take, for example, the newly launched 101-foot, raised pilot house yacht, VICTORIANO, which was completed this year and made its début at the annual Miami Beach Yacht Show in February. It really was a show-stopper. The owners of this incredible, new, luxurious yacht fell in love with it and it is already providing pleasure, comfort, and style to them – the new owners. The owners were current owners of a 2008, 75-foot Viking motor yacht, but when they saw VICTORIANO they knew it was going to be the new one for them.
Each yacht is built the “Jack Hargrave” way
Yet, all the custom and quality still went into the building of VICTORIANO, the same as it would have if the owner had participated in the development. You can see that for yourself on the complete video tour (below). Why? It’s because that is the Jack Hargrave way. Jack Hargrave, who is largely responsible for the way American yachting has evolved, started a legacy of customizing each new build with the input of marine architects, crew members, captains, experienced yacht owners, cooks, designers, decorators, and anyone else who had experiences in what is right and wrong about how a vessel is built. Without that legacy, all yachts today might be production yachts. Jack Hargrave redefined the meaning of custom and quality.
Customization and Quality do not end with the purchase
Whether you became an owner before your yacht was created, or took ownership just after it was delivered, at some time you will need to rely on dependable customer service. Hargrave Custom Yachts is completely committed to quality customer service. What’s more, we don’t wait for you to come to us for service; we will bring complete service to you, whether you find yourself in foreign waters or at home. Hargrave Custom Yachts has the happiest customers of any in the 70-foot to 130-foot range. Because of the quality of our workmanship, the level of customization, and the dedicated customer service, some owners have continued to trade up to their fourth Hargrave yacht in less than a decade. All of our customers would give you referrals on the standard of performance and support we provide.
Have it all—your own way
Whether you buy a newly built yacht or building one to your every specification, the choice is completely up to you. You can be hands-on in all phases or you can have it ready to go when you are. Either way, Hargrave Custom Yachts will meet or surpass your every expectation. Hargrave wants you to feel that custom will mean whatever you wanted it to mean, while high quality will remain the definition of every step and in every element.
