Custom is written right into the Hargrave Custom Yachts brand name. The builder has produced more than 100 custom yachts so far, including several 101-foot motoryachts.

Notable features: Yachting's test 101, Victoriano, was outfitted with a pair of 1,675 hp Caterpillar C32 diesels, providing a 21-knot top speed and an 18-knot cruising speed. Her bridge deck had a bar and whirlpool.

Belowdecks: Depending on an owner's needs or desires, he could choose a four- or five-stateroom layout, with a five- or six-­person crew area.

Availability: At press time, seven Hargrave 101s were on the brokerage market, ranging from $3,950,000 to $8,876,100.

“Our customers are what we call ‘the working rich,’ and they understand the value of a dollar and have worked hard to get theirs. ... They want us to design and build them boats that make sense.”

- Hargrave CEO Michael Joyce — Yachting, May 2010
