This Hargrave Signature series motor yacht has a wonderful balance of indoor and outdoor space that can be appreciated by all. Entering the yacht from the custom designed aft deck you begin to understand the important differences found in a custom built yacht. The teak aft deck sets the stage for casual entertainment and leads you into the main salon through automated sliding glass doors. This salon is set up like a chic lounge with several unique conversation areas and plenty of space for entertaining guests. Forward is the galley done in the signature Hargrave country kitchen style with a large banquette that faces aft and into the galley. To starboard in this space is a convenient day head. Also to starboard is a staircase that leads to the staterooms below deck. This yacht features three comfortable staterooms, each with an en suite head. Additional accommodations are found forward and down a staircase from the galley. Here, you will find a double berth stateroom and a second stateroom with over/under bunks for more guests or crew members. This area also has a shared head. Whether or not you run your own yacht or have a full-time crew, this yacht is versatile enough to suit all your needs. Above deck, there is yacht another interior living and entertainment space. The enclosed sky lounge has plenty of seating, a small bar and forward electronic and navigational console and Stidd chairs that make up the helm.

This vessel is built to accommodate up to ten people comfortably in five staterooms. The master stateroom takes advantage of the full width of the beam, and features his and her heads, while the VIP and twin stateroom each have their own en suite head and room for 4 guests. The forward quarters are made up of two additional staterooms, including a double berth stateroom with a double bed and an additional room with over/under bunks for two more guests.
For boaters who wish to have a full-time crew, the forward two staterooms are ideal for that purpose.
The aft deck is a warm and inviting spot to enjoy the morning sunrise or take in the cool ocean air while enjoying your evening cocktails. Teak soles are both durable and attractive and as this space provides access to the upper aft deck, swim platform and engine room, main salon and forward bow, those aspects are very important. A small wet bar and buffet is an excellent source for entertainment functions as is the dining table with a built-in cushioned bench and several teak chairs. A custom teak table faces aft, and to the left and right of it are gently curved staircases that lead down to the swim platform. The swim platform is also the point from which you enter the engine room. Back up on the aft deck and forward, sliding glass doors glide open with an electronic sensor to reveal the lovely main salon.

The main salon is designed with an non-traditional furniture arrangement making it seem more like a chic lounge than a living room. As you enter, to port is a seating area made up of a love seat and sofa done in a bone colored leather and in between which there is a lovely display nook with a raised counter and overhead lights that currently highlight one of the owners' many gorgeous sculptures. This display area is the perfect space for you to place your most prized art pieces. A centrally located ottoman and several blue and tan throw pillows accentuate this area. To starboard is another seating and entertainment area with an aqua blue arm chair situated next to a large high-gloss cherry display counter that conceals a 42" Panasonic Plasma TV on a high/lo lift system. Forward and to port is a spacious dining area with a built-in banquette, round glass dining table and several parsons’ chairs. This cafe style arrangement is casual and inviting, but also offers tailored details and fine fabrics making it suitable for formal entertainment. Across from here, a curvaceous bar offers two more seats with blue cushioned and silver bar stools. A black granite bar top and two large columns accentuate the space, along with a ceiling height glass display cabinet with a fine collection of stemware and china. This main salon lends itself entirely to your pure enjoyment. Other features that round out the impressive accommodations include tan fabric window treatments that adjust to your liking, fine high-gloss cherry wood throughout, and a full audio-visual package including a DVDO j-scan Plasma Video, Denon DVD, CD, CD-R/RW and MP3 player, Sony 400 disc MegaStorage CD/MPS changer, Denon Theatre Surround sound, and a Mitsubishi VHS, to name a few.
The Country Kitchen style Galley area is forward of the Salon but well separated via a wide Companionway.
The main electric panel is to starboard followed by nine open tread carpeted stairs to the Sky Lounge.

The table is smoked glass with a cherry and stainless steel base. There is ample storage below the cushions. Three large windows forward are covered with electrically operated pleated shades.
