The ARGO is a versatile sailboat for clubs, sailing schools and recreational sailors. The ARGO can be sailed single handed, raced by two and also has comfortable capacity for up to four adult crew.
The performance, power and responsive handling will impress experienced sailors; the stability will grow the confidence of less experienced sailors; while the load capacity and versatility will attract schools and families.
As soon as you step aboard you will notice how stable the ARGO sailing platform is. The ARGO has a dynamic, yet forgiving ultra-stable hull shape and an easily controllable rig that is ideal for less experienced sailors but also has years of progression built in. All-in-all the ARGO is fast and exciting but also easily controllable and well balanced.
The ARGO has a contoured side deck to provide a really comfortable sit-in feel. A low freeboard, deep spacious cockpit and high boom with boom vang above the boom for added cockpit space, plus unrivaled stability and a smooth ride mean that the ARGO is a great boat to sail.
