Hargrave 80 Deal Maker:
Luxury Cruising Yacht for 6

Hargrave 80 Deal Maker
Hargrave 80 Deal Maker

The Hargrave 80 Deal Maker has three al fresco social areas to welcome family and friends, and, while the aft deck and foredeck have their appeal, to our mind the big draw will be the flying bridge. With a bar with stools, comfortable lounges, and a helm with companion seating, the top deck has all a crew needs. Have a closer look at the living and engine spaces in the video here.

USCG Report

How Many Recreational Boats Are Registered in the U.S.?

uscg report
Huge event-worthy raft-ups only hint at the actual numbers of boats.

If there’s anything social media has shown us lately, it’s that people want to belong to a community. This is something that boaters have always known, and it’s why we often wave to each other on the water. But just how large is this community? There’s long been a reliable way to find out: Boat registrations. Check out the statistics from the U.S. Coast Guard on how many recreational boats are registered, based on boat size and propulsion type here.
