SOVEREIGN is a stunning vintage Jack Hargrave-designed Burger that has been continually maintained and upgraded over time by conscientious owners and a professional crew.  Accommodation for up to 7 guests is found in 4 beautifully appointed ensuite staterooms.  Presented in beautiful condition, she essentially needs nothing beyond a new owner’s personal touches to enjoy immediate use.


Nearly every system, finish, and feature has been either upgraded or improved aboard SOVEREIGN in recent years.  Paint, decks, head system, new Cummins QSM11’s main engines and Onan 55kw generators, new galley appliances, refreshed interior, new bar area, new upper flybridge lounging area, and a custom swim platform extension with stairs.  No expense has spared aboard SOVEREIGN to ensure her head turning appearance and ready to go condition.


Key Features

  • QSM11 engines, gears, exhaust system, and Onan Generators new in 2007
  • Refreshed interior with new custom bar area forward in the salon
  • Fully updated and recent navigational electronics and communications systems
  • Redesigned custom swim platform and stern boarding stairs

Guest Accommodations

The uniquely styled chic interior of SOVEREIGN has been through a custom refit by American Custom Cabinetry and Ellen Kavanaugh interiors of Palm Beach. Unlike many other classic yachts, the interior of SOVEREIGN is bright, airy, and crisp.  The main salon is a comfortable place to entertain, thanks to her recent custom bar area forward, or watch a movie on the hidden TV.  The aft deck features a larger than normal lounging settee and a beautiful custom-fitted sliding high low dining table finished in high gloss teak.  A cleverly redesigned formal dining room forward now functions as an “eat-in-kitchen”. The galley has been recently upgraded with first-class stainless appliances and provides excellent facilities and prep/plating space for any chef.  Accommodation for 7 guests in 4 traditionally appointed ensuite staterooms is below and aft.  Crew accommodation for 5 in 3 staterooms is below and forward.

Broker Remarks

SOVEREIGN - Launched as TITAN - was the largest yacht ever built in aluminum at the time. The yacht's designer, Jack Hargrave, was very proud of this fact which made her 30,000 pounds lighter than if she were built out of steel and allowed her a shallower, more Bahamas friendly, draft, and achieved the same performance with about 15 percent less horsepower. Her interior was described as "over the top" for her day, and she originally contained two full beam fore and aft staterooms along with a small "emergency stateroom" or starboard mid-stateroom. Eventually, the full beam aft stateroom was split and another ensuite head was added to make SOVEREIGN the four-stateroom yacht she is today. Her original Carpathian elm burl and Brazilian rosewood is still visible and in beautiful shape in the staterooms and the main deck/salon still features modern and crisp white paneling. Much like her first furnishings, she features sleek contemporary mid-century modern furniture offering bright pops of color throughout.  Her aft deck was appointed with unusually deep lounge seating surrounding the table. 


It is very rare to come across a yacht that has had such fantastic continuous care and updates throughout all her owners. SOVEREIGN is in beautiful condition and needs to be seen to fully appreciate all that she has to offer. She is highly recommended by her broker.
