INEVITABLE is a 97' Hargrave luxury motor yacht in turn-key condition and the perfect family cruiser. Thanks to generous, and ongoing upgrades INEVITABLE is in excellent condition.

She boasts spacious, open entertaining areas with large windows in the main salon offering excellent natural light. Her country galley is a great place to enjoy socializing during meal preparation. 

Since purchasing the INEVITABLE in 2020 the owner has made many upgrades and improvements to the vessel and has completed all scheduled maintenance. The totaled work adds up to over $1 million spent since 2020. Some of the major works include complete overhaul of the CAT 3412E main engines, new teak on the aft deck and cockpit, many of the windows removed/recaulked and surrounding areas painted, new anchor chain and starboard windless, and many other repairs and upgrades that are mentioned in this brochure.

The flybridge features a covered helm and offers spectacular built-in seating to port and starboard. A barbecue, fridge and freezer make this space perfect for family cookouts in the sunshine.
