  1. "Baba's"; Hargrave's 56-meter Flagship
    The 56-meter flagship of the Hargrave Custom Yachts is called "Baba’s". She was built to a design by Unique Yachts with an interior and Naval Architecture by HSY Yachts. This isn’t necessarily new territory for Hargrave as they have built this large before taking it all the way back to 1991 with the 184-foot "Katamarino" currently known as "Paris" at Amels. Jack Hargrave designed the exterior on that superyacht but it was built at Amels. She (Baba's) features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure construction.
  2. She will be making her world premier at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) and is expected to be at the Face Dock at Bahia Mar which is a new location for Hargrave Custom Yachts to display at. The vessel is full-metal construction as mentioned before and was built to Lloyds 100 A-1 Commercial Class. This year's Hargrave display will definitely be an attention-grabber.
  3. While the exterior presents a design that is balanced and with angular surfaces the interior is also of interest. Below is the master suite which is full-beam in nature with large windows on either side of the room. The position of the suite is towards the forward main deck area and takes advantage of Baba’s 34-foot beam. The massive double bed is centrally placed echoing the placement of the sculpted tray ceiling above with in-set LED lighting.
  4. This is the ensuite for the master suite. The space is light thanks to the stone chosen for the tile-work and the ceiling panels. This is handsomely contrasted by glossed mid-tone timber which is also seen in other areas onboard. A master bathroom should always be just as lavish as the principal room they are serving. This one ticks all the boxes!
  5. The yacht is actually fitted out to a six cabin layout for the owner and guests. This example below is a guest double located on the lower deck. It is spacious and the décor follows the general theme seen around this superyacht. There are four guest cabins on the lower deck, a master cabin on the forward main deck and a VIP on the upper deck.
  6. The main deck salon is completed in an interesting layout. Not too formal neither too casual. There is a sense of free-form flow with the presentation of the main seating in the salon with the curved pieces. It is a more intimate set up leaving wide space on the sides. On many other yachts the sides by the windows typically feature built-in cabinetry and seating, HSY Yachts took a slightly different approach.
  7. Up one deck, one will find the upper salon or what many may term the sky lounge. This space is more informal and is geared towards entertainment with a bar close-by ready to serve your favorite cocktails. The décor also changed in the space with different timber on the floor and sweeping curves to the main settee. The ceiling work is also a work of art with its tapered in tiered details all highlighted by LED lighting.
  8. Outside on the aft upper deck there is a lot of space to be enjoyed. The round al-fresco dining table seats nine to ten comfortably and the rest of the space is open. No sun-lounger chairs seen in the photo but a few easy-sitting chairs are placed.
  9. The sundeck is usually one of the most used areas on any yacht. On Baba’s the sundeck is fitted with a Jacuzzi on the forward-end of the deck which is flanked by striped sunpads. Centrally placed under the hardtop is a small bar which is ready to serve the liquid courage of your choice. The deck appears served by the yacht’s central lift so there is even easier access without having to take the stairs.
  10. On the flat-end of the yacht, the aft lower deck you will find the beach club region which is expanded by a large transom door that folds out to the water. The door has an integrated swim ladder that allows a more graceful entry and exit to the water. The real estate on the swim platform when the transom door is extended is decent and many different pieces of furniture can be brought out to help make the day at anchor more relaxing.
  11. Baba’s is a 56-meter superyacht with a beam of 10.4-meters. She was delivered in 2019 to her American owner. The yacht was actually built at HSY Yachts in Turkey with a volume of approximately 800 GT. She is powered by twin CAT 3512 Tier 4 diesels and at full throttle her top speed is close to 18-knots. Her range can be stretched to around 5,000 nautical miles are conservative speeds.
