We are the third owners of this very comfortable, blue water ready cruising yacht. Purchased in Dec 2016 our extensive refit has been continuing until present. The plan was to sail the South Pacific and beyond. Ready to set sail on the Gold Coast, fully equipped, including a new engine, prop, standing and running rigging, rewiring, water maker, back arch and bimini, hard top cockpit cover, more solar panels, hot water service, holding tanks, swim platform.... (see pdf for more) COVID changed our plans. Since then we have been cruising the Qld coast. In 2020 new wardrobe of sails and in 2021 a new dinghy were added.
Argonaut of Melb is easy to sail short handed with 3 electric winches and an in mast mainsail. Having a centre cockpit means that our cabins are spacious and there is plenty of headroom. There are 2 double island bedrooms and 2 cabins both with 2 bunks (currently used to store sporting equipment)
She is a perfect live aboard or for extended cruising.
