Argos debuts new, customized yachts

Tricon Marine has just presented the Argos Gulfstream, a limited edition series of luxury performance yachts. From Oct. 29-Nov. 2, the first model, the Argos G92, made its first debut at the International boat show in Fort Lauderdale. The Argos G100 is another model that is currently under construction and will be scheduled to launch 2010.

The different models are available in 80-120 feet and have a spacious master stateroom SkySuite with 270-degree panoramic views. Large social gatherings, playing sports, or watching entertainers are only some of the activities that can be done on the ship’s multipurpose split-level sun decks.

Chairman and CEO of Tricon Marine, Christos Lavadas, comments, “The Argos Gulfstream eliminates compromises and the cookie-cutter look that characterizes so many luxury yachts today. She combines speed and range, seaworthiness and beauty, style and spaciousness.”

Because the ship’s design gives the crew direct access from their quarters to day-to-day work areas, there is no need for the yacht’s crew to pass through social areas of the ship.

“Owners will be delighted by the Argos Gulfstream’s level of privacy, which is not available on any other yacht under 120 feet,” says Livadas.

The SkySuite staterooms have king-sized beds with headboards which double as the back wall of the suite’s extensive walk-in closet, allowing natural light to flow into the dressing area. The room is styled with beige tones and the cabinets can serve as a comfortable work area as well as an entertainment system and is equipped with a 52-inch flat-screen television. Located on opposite sides of the suite, his-and-her restrooms are separated to provide privacy, and are joined in the center with a luxury shower.

The large sunbeds on the sun deck allow you to soak up the hot sun all afternoon, and is great for social events. Aside from the SkySuites, there are also three guest rooms and crew quarters for four. The Argos was built for challenging seas and provides trans-oceanic range and high-performance speed.
