Best Yachts from Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
You know that an inflatable manufacturer is obsessed with creating a superyacht tender when he commissions a successful yacht designer to conceive it. Miami-based Argos Nautic commissioned Patrizio Facheris, an Italian yacht designer, to create a small, powerful, and elegant rigid-hulled inflatable as the perfect companion for any yacht. The Argos Nautic 305’s 10-foot length makes it ideal for 50-plus-foot yachts. Its long list of quality features include a fiberglass hull, Orca hypalon tubes, teak floor in the cockpit sole, a Fusion stereo system, Isotta steering wheel with leather trim, LED lighting, and top-quality stainless fittings. At FLIBS, the caliber of design and workmanship towered over the other RIB manufacturers. The stitching and details were flawless. The semi-custom design allows owners to choose colors, and even the textures of the 305 to match their motherships. Thanks to the fiberglass hull, the 305 can top 31 knots with a 40 hp outboard, offering a stable and dry ride.
