The Yachts and Ships of 

Jack Hargrave 

By Marilyn Mower 

Jack Hargrave

The man who put America on the water!

More than 300 designs. More than 7,000 boats and ships.

What Nat Herreshoff and the Stephens brothers are to sailing, Jack Hargrave is to the world of motor yachts—and then some! Hargrave’s gen-ius lay in his ability to design every type of vessel and achieve success with any con-struction material. In 1959, he revolution-ized the boating indus-try with the world’s first fiberglass con-vertible sportfisher-man. In 1960, he rocked the world again with the first all-aluminum luxury yacht.

In just 38 years, Jack Hargrave and his team of designers, engi-neers and draftsman drew the lines that launched 7,000 yachts and ships: no other designer comes close and it is unlikely any

other independent yacht designer ever will. A quiet man of great humility, Hargrave’s talent allowed him to conceive vessels as dissimilar as a 19-foot runabout, offshore racing boats, stern wheelers,

and even a 691-foot integrated tug-barge.

With Don Mucklow, Willis Slane, Dave Parker an a cast of Carolina boatbuilders – Hargrave creat the greatest brand production boatbuilding has ever known – Hatteras Yachts. Hargrave’s ideas and style redefined America’s power boat indust and his ideas about solid, seakindly boats took root at 65 yards in 21 countries.

Jack Hargrave – the dean of American naval arc tecture – was a man of intriguing contrasts. Al-though he designed yachts for the world’s elite, never forgot his Midwest values, brown-bagged lunches and hated the term megayacht.

American Classic—Th Yachts and Ships of Jack Hargrave intro-duces the reader to a true American succe story and in so doing traces the richest ch ter in the developme of boating and com-mercial shipping the world has ever know
