See her at the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 22 - 25, 2018
Commissioned in March 2015 in Victoria, British Colombia. M/Y ARGO was built for a two and a half year mission to explore, venture and experience the many wonders and cultures of the vast west coast of North, Central and South America, cruising to Alaska to Patagonia to Cape Horn and finally resting in Fort Lauderdale, FL. With this mission and voyage in mind, ARGO was built to expect the unexpected, to ensure the safety and comfort of its crew and passengers, to build mechanical systems with endurance and capability to experience the various seas which ARGO would traverse, to assemble an electronic, navigation, and boat information systems which provide real time and meaningful information for its crew and passengers to ensure a safe and rewarding voyage.
M/Y ARGO was built with redundancy as it main focus carefully considering the adage, “Two is One and One is none” throughout its mechanical, electric and electronic systems.
This remarkable yacht is for sale, as owner is planning his next Outer Reef Yachts purchase.
Starting aft, ARGO has an extended swim platform and was built with the largest cockpit of any Outer Reef to date. The spacious cockpit has a baitwell tank, dive tank storage, built-in tackle boxes and fishing rod holders. Twin staircases from the cockpit lead to an aft deck with both built-in and loose seating, plus an extended custom table to easily accommodate eight for dining. Built-in cabinets on the aft deck house refrigeration and storage, plus provide a useful counter area.
Moving forward is a spacious salon with a comfortable custom-made L-shaped sofa and club chairs with storage compartments. Salon also holds an entertainment center, extensive bookshelf space, custom ceiling detail, and additional cabinetry for DVD, wine and liquor storage and bar cabinetry.
Forward of the salon is a spacious galley with excellent pantry storage in a large island with counter, with an on-deck head on the opposite side. Dividing the galley and the pilothouse is a power lifting panel located at the aft end of the pilothouse seating, which in conjunction with a pocket door from the staircase, completely separates the pilothouse. This feature is unique to ARGO and is specifically designed for night running and division when required from the galley and salon area. When not in use, it allows for a complete open country-kitchen feeling.
The pilothouse has twin upgraded power pedestal Stidd helm seats, and a U-shapedsettee with a large table that can be utilized for dining or as a work space with a completely unobstructed views through the Pilothouse windows. Weathertight port and starboard doors allow for easy access to covered walk around decks.
From the pilothouse, a staircase leads down to the owner and guest accommodations. Forward is a Queen-berth VIP stateroom with an ensuite head and shower. To port is a guest cabin with two twin berths and an ensuite head and shower. The King-berth master stateroom feature two spacious walk-in closets, and a marble-floored ensuite head with large shower. There is engine room access from the aft walk-in closet in the master, through a sound-insulated watertight door.
The large stand-up engine room houses engines, generators, stabilizers, ASEA voltage regulators, and other equipment, with the engineering and placement designed for easy trouble shooting and servicing.
Aft of the engine room is the crew quarters with a comfortable L-shaped seating area and a dinette table. The crew stateroom features a Queen berth with an ensuite head. This crew area was built at the same high- level of fit and finish as the rest of the yacht, with beautiful cherry joinery. Aft of the crew galley is a work area, with a stainless steel work bench, 6" vice, Craftsman toolbox, storage cabinetry and access to the cockpit through a weather tight door.
The foredeck of the yacht has comfortable seating forward of the Portuguese bridge that is able to convert to a lounge. There are two independent windlasses, both with chain and two large anchors.
The flybridge and boat deck are accessed from an interior staircase in the pilothouse, as well as an exterior stair from the aft deck. The design of this 880 Outer Reef Classic series provides an extremely large and wide upper flybridge and boat deck area. Twin Stidd seats are in a position for maximum visibility fore and aft, and the large hardtop extends over the helm area and aft, over L-shaped settees to port and starboard. The flybridge seating easily accommodates ten guests, with tables for dining or entertaining.
Aft of the flybridge seating is FRP cabinetry, with a large stainless BBQ, fridge/icemaker combo, sink and two very large built in deck boxes to port. The boat deck is sufficiently large, with 1700lb capacity davit to carry a 15’ tender athwart ships.

OUTER REEF CRUISING / SAFETY PACKAGE
ARGO was built after an extensive search of other builders by her owner. Outer Reef Yachts are well known for the custom nature of our builds, their excellent sea keeping, and the traditional classic lines of our yachts. Some of the examples of this yachts' upgraded systems include her 96-mile 25 kw Furuno radar, (one of her two radars) which is normally found on 1000’ cruise ships, a forward Carlisle & Finch searchlight and a Kahlenberg horn.
The expedition nature of her owner’s plans was the focus of the research to provide very extensive redundant systems. ARGO, of course was also built with the creature comforts that you would expect including an upgraded cherry interior and marble and granite throughout. Her owner, guest and crew accommodations allow for comfort at sea. Every effort was made in preliminary and continued design sessions, before the hull construction started, to insure her for extended travel. Available only because her owners have plans for another new Outer Reef in the near future.
