Hargrave Custom Yachts
Hargrave Custom Yachts has long been considered as one of the leading yacht design houses in the US. Its early successes can be largely credited to the vision and expert stewardship of Jack Hargrave. The company has had major contributions to the success of several companies such as Atlantic & Halmatic, Prairie, Amels, Burger and Hatteras. After the death of Jack Hargrave in 1997, Michael Joyce took over the helm as president and CEO and immediately buckled down to work in order to sustain the momentum achieved by the yacht building company under the leadership of Hargrave. Hargrave yachts are outstanding vessels, well suited both for private use as well as yacht charter.
