There's nothing wrong with a knock-about wristwatch, but it doesn't fit with a made-to-measure Savile Row suit. The same holds true with a tender. It may be utilitarian in nature, but like a fine timepiece, it's part an overall expression of quality, representing the mothership it serves. This is why discerning owners choose a bespoke Argos Nautic Yachting Series RIB tender. The boats deliver style and comfort, and are equally at ease with black tie or flip flops.
The Yachting Series is offered in two models, the 305 that's 10' and the 396 that's 13' 6". Both are stunning examples of famed yacht designer Patrizio Facheris' graceful, flowing lines and inventive use of space. Factor in the attention to detail Argos Nautic builds into every semi-custom boat, and it's clear why they're often seen in the most exclusive marinas and anchorages.
Like all Argos Nautic boats, the Yachting Series is tailored to the specifics of its owner. Whether it's matching the mothership in color and texture or next year's trends, each tender is strikingly unique. This is on top of its superior appointments such as hand-stitched upholstery, teak flooring, and top-quality stainless steel components and hardware.
With any boat, however, form does follow function. And with the Yachting Series, performance is a hallmark of the 305 and 396. Seating four and five passengers, respectively, they're decidedly dry rides, yet have the acceleration and turn-carving abilities to make them double as an exhilarating sport boat. The 305 starts at $25,000 and the 396 at $35,000.
