The 81 2003 Hargrave is a luxuriously appointed yacht that provides unimpeded wheelchair access from dock to Sky Lounge. Using clever design and thoughtful installation, the changes and additions which ake this yacht so accessable have had immimal impact on the yacht, in fact, a casual visitor might not even notice most of them.

The main deck has an extremely spacious salon with a conservative motif comprised of neutral colors and sensible furniture. The salon has ample room for the owner to maneuver easily around his masterpiece while enjoying the company of family and friends. Cherry wood with burl accents adds warmth to the spacious floor plan. She sleeps eight people in four gorgeous staterooms. The master stateroom features an elevator entrance to port with enough room for an en suite head and walk-in closet. Built as one of the only entirely handicap accessible motoryachts of this size range, “Pretty Lady” is truly unusual.

When this extraordinary vessel was unveiled in 2003 it complied with every industry standard from the DNV to the ABYC.


The high gloss Cherry wood with Burl accents, matching grain patterns, full crown moldings and tray ceiling treatments reflect Hargrave's impeccable joinerwork.

Most visitors won't pay attention to the forward port corner, which has what seems to be an oversized glass-front china cabinet with a titled map of the Caribbean above the buffet area. In reality, this is a neatly disguised elevator that starts on the lower level in the master suite and opens to both the salon and sky lounge to provide full access to each deck.

Not only is the elevator unobtrusive, it's also beautifully finished, from the diamond pattern glass doors, to the inlaid flooring, to the glossy Cherry wood that lines the elevator shaft itself.
