There's a sense of passionate adventure that comes with the yachting lifestyle, and Argos Nautic's 305 indulges this notion. It's a compact, lightweight 10' RIB tender that's as much at home exploring a secluded cay as it is cruising up to the beach.
Designed by Patrizio Facheris, its pedigreed Italian styling is a marriage of lithe form and opulent comfort. No detail has been overlooked—every component was chosen with an eye to expand and augment the overall design.
The 305 is customizable to the point of being a bespoke vessel. Some opt to match the tender to its mothership, others gravitate towards the newest, trendiest palette of color and texture. Each is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind creation that reflects the individuality of its owner.
Its well-appointed interior is striking. Its teak and holly flooring are a counterpoint to the glossiness of its silky interior. The sumptuous seating and thoughtful design offer ample space for four. Hidden storage compartments abound, providing even more interior room. Even the LED lighting sets a mood that is unmistakably Argos Nautic.
The 305 responds with surety to the slightest input to the tilting Isotta wheel, delivering exhilarating performance. It'll make 31 knots with its 40 hp outboard and will plane in three seconds. Yet, it's a forgiving, seakindly hull that provides a refined ride when desired.
Weighing only 750 lbs. and a mere 5.7' wide, the 305 slips into a medium-sized garage and is easily hoisted onto davits. Whether by owner or crew, launching and retrieving a tender has never been easier.
U.S. Coast Guard approved, Argos Nautic's 305 starts at $30,000.
