The story behind the creation of Adventure Us II is a great illustration of Hargrave’s custom prowess and their dedication to clients. Perhaps most notable in the exterior is the yacht’s extended enclosed area on the upper deck—a variation from typical Hargrave Sky Lounge models—which was a request from the owners who wished for a large entertaining area to accommodate all family members, including children and grandchildren. The interior design received thorough input from the owners who had a true vision for their yacht. Throughout the years, Adventure Us II owners had compiled a binder with details of décor, furnishings, wall treatments, tiles and more, influenced by Art Deco, they envisioned for their vessel. The dining salon for example was designed around a glass etching from the 1920s of an elegant Parisian woman, which bright springtime tones of melon, lime and coral became the inspiration for the color pallet carried throughout the yacht. Hargrave craftsmen chose rich black walnut with gold leaf embellishments for the main salon to starboard and its walk-up bar. Forward of the main salon is the galley. With its sweetgum burl cabinetry the galley exudes glamour. Its starboard side also doubles as a side entrance to the staircase to the flybridge and guest area. The on-deck master suite allows for lots of natural light and has three large closets, including a walk-in closet, a hat, purse and accessories closet. The master bath boasts grey emperador marble and warm deep brown wood paneling, continuing with the Art Deco theme. The lower deck three guest staterooms were designed with certain family members in mind. The port stateroom has youthful colors of coral rose, peach and hot pink with three twin beds. The starboard stateroom has a full walk-around queen size bed with a more masculine tone of plaid rusts and honey. The captain and crew quarters are spacious and boast the same delicate finishes as the rest of the boat.
