Hargrave Spreading the Love with New 101’ RPH in Fort Lauderdale
The 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show just got better for 26 North Yachts as Hargrave announced that a brand new 101’ raised pilothouse design from Ted Black Studios launched and will be at the docks. The vessel is part of Hargrave’s current total makeover of their product line. Her name: Second Love.
Hargrave’s 101’ Raised Pilothouse is a semi-displacement design powered by twin 1,700-hp Caterpillar C-32s that can top 22 knots (cruising at 18 knots). Second Love has a 21’ beam and 5’10” draft and a state-of-the-art electronics package.
Custom interiors were designed by Yacht Interiors by Shelley who has made the most of the spacious 7’2” headroom on the main deck. Look for exquisite hardwoods like high gloss walnut, detailed inlays, modern inte rior furnishings, oversized windows and portholes allowing natural light and views throughout.
Hargrave’s 101 RPH features a fabulous aft deck with generous built-in seating with storage and a large table with custom teak inlay top. The top can move fore and aft for easy access to seating and up and down from dining to cocktails! An aft deck wet bar with refrigeration and storage makes entertaining convenient from this location without traipsing into the main salon.
Although, the main salon is spectacular with ample seating options and a spacious feel! Here there is another convenient bar inside. The dining area allows entertaining from two to eight with plenty of storage for china, glasses, and linens in convenient cabinets port and starboard. Sliding pocket doors to the port and starboard hallways provide privacy from the galley forward, steps to the pilot house, and lower accommodations.
Like throughout, the country kitchen boasts lots of natural light from large windows, in addition to features such as granite counter tops, teak hardwood floors, and gloss walnut walls and cabinetry. There is a well-appointed day head on this deck, too, with marble counter tops and floor and mirrored ceiling.
The Hargrave 101’ RPH houses four guest staterooms and crew quarters for three. The master is full beam and accommodates a king bed. Comfortable accommodation for couples come courtesy of his and her heads (with shared frameless glass enclosed shower) and his and her walk-in closets. Gloss walnut and gloss elm burl accents grace these quarters.
A private VIP forward and down a few stairs from the galley can also accommodate a king-sized bed in the berth. It also features his and her closets and en suite head with two sinks. The port guest stateroom has a queen berth, plenty of storage, cedar lined closet, and en suite head. Twin berths are convertible to a queen bed in the starboard guest stateroom. Crew quarters contain a captain’s cabin with en suite head and double berth and two crew cabins with shared head.
The flybridge boasts a wet bar with three bar stools and granite marble counter tops, custom seating for lounging, barbecue grill, hot tub, and hot tub bar with three bar stools.
Hargrave prides itself that no two Hargrave yachts are alike. The company points out that their custom yachts are different when they are new and are thus different in the resale market allowing for more choice and variety. It’s no wonder that Hargrave made the 26 North Yachts Top 10 list!
