The sky lounge continues the minimalist theme, with a makore-planked sole and Italian swivel chairs upholstered in buttery leather and equipped with interlocking hassocks. A curving bar is aft near the sliding doors, and there is also a casual dining or game table with four chairs. The forward bulkhead holds a 64-inch flatscreen TV, and rope lighting hides in the coffered overhead. A day-head continues the theme of the master with polished glass tiles on the sole and a stylish vessel sink. The upper deck is the alfresco living area, which starts with the helm, followed by a curving bar with stools to allow guests to look forward. Two settees with tables are under the fiberglass hardtop, and the after area of the bridge has a six-person Jacuzzi spa with sun pad and an outdoor kitchen with grill and fridge. A Yamaha personal watercraft and a 15-foot Nautica wide-body RIB tender are chocked aft, along with a Quick Lift 2,000-pound davit.
Built to RINA “unrestricted” classification, DREAmer is a fully composite yacht, and all the interior, from bulkheads to built-in furniture, is cored composite to minimize weight. Prepared for worldwide cruising, her Atlas ShorPower converter handles a wide range of shore power ratings and, for ample fresh water, she has three 1,800-gallon-per-day Sea Recovery watermakers. A pair of Caterpillar 1,825-horsepower C32 ACERT diesels power DREAmer, giving her a top speed of 18 knots and transatlantic range on 10,000 gallons of fuel. Both engines provide redundant hydraulic power takeoffs, which drive the Naiad hydraulic at-anchor stabilizers and a Naiad bow thruster. The engine room is a showplace, with full access around the engines as well as to the twin Kohler 80 kW gensets, full workshop, Alfa Laval fuel polishers and a Reverso oil-transfer system among the mains, gensets and the Naiad hydraulic system power pack. The lazarette has a builtin bosun’s lockers, and freezer.
Combining the best of European styling sensibilities with American functionality, DREAmer is a magnificent addition to the Hargrave line. Even if her décor is not to your taste, I guarantee you at least a few “oh-wow” moments if you are lucky enough to be invited aboard.
