Included in that price is about $300,000 worth of upgrades that were done aboard Brandi Wine in September and October 2023. They included the installation of new electronics and audiovisual systems, as well as new antifouling and zincs to protect the underwater equipment.
The team at Hargrave notes that these updates and upgrades are in addition to the original construction of Brandi Wine, which “exceeded industry standards” when the semi-displacement yacht was designed and built back in 2009. The original spec called for long-range cruising capability, Naiad zero-speed stabilizers, extra stowage, high ceilings, a high-visibility bridge, extra soundproofing, a convertible hardtop and an oversized hardtop.
“ Brandi Wine is a great example of a fully customized Hargrave yacht,” the company says, adding that Brandi Wine also underwent a hydraulics system rebuild in 2022. Combined, according to Hargrave, the 2022 and 2023 refits totaled more than $400,000.
And that was on top of yet another refit that was completed in 2021. The yacht has had all LED lighting since 2019.
At the helm, Brandi Wine now has electronics equipment from Garmin and Furuno, including a GPSMap 8700 and a NavNet TZtouch. Similar equipment is up at the flybridge helm, with sunlight-readable displays. Yet another Garmin GPSMap display is installed in the captain’s cabin for additional monitoring.
The yacht runs with three generators: two 65-kilowatt Northern Lights, and one 17-kilowatt Phasor for nighttime or emergency use. Fuel capacity is 7,000 gallons. The power plants are twin 1,400-horsepower Caterpillar 3412E diesels, which Hargrave’s team says provide a cruising speed of 15 knots and a top hop of 17 knots.
Accommodations are for eight guests in four en suite staterooms, including a full-beam master stateroom with a 42-inch, 4K Samsung television. Both the master and one of the guest staterooms have king-size berths. The remaining two guest staterooms have queen and twin berths. Bose Soundbars are in all the owner and guest staterooms.
There also are three crew cabins, which Hargrave says can accommodate six crew. The galley is equipped with appliances made by leading brands such as Sub-Zero, GE and Fisher & Paykal.
Where is Brandi Wine available for showings and sea trials? The yacht is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
