Raised pilothouse for high expectations
Argos Yachts is about to deliver its new custom Argos 70 to her owners. This sturdy composite yacht is the latest born in the yard’s limited-edition series, designed by the shipyard and naval architect Howard Appollonio. The first Argos introduced was a 92-footer, an interesting yacht with clearly different styling and an interior layout that drew lots of attention at the 2009 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The whole series, built by Tricon Marine in China, was conceived to provide owners interested in doing extensive cruising with innovative, sturdy and efficient vessels yielding good performance. The new Argos 70, the smallest in a series that includes a 100-footer, sleeps six guests in three staterooms with ensuite heads, plus two crewmembers. It features a large pilothouse, spacious galley, beautiful salon with a dayhead and a multipurpose split-level sun deck offering space for entertaining or relaxation. Fitted with CAT C-12 715-hp engines, the yacht cruises at 17 knots with a maximum speed of 20 knots and a range of more than 1,500 nautical miles at passage-making speeds.
