Versitility Without Compromise.
Performance, Control, & Comfortable Capacity
The ARGO can be sailed singlehanded, raced by two and also has comfortable capacity for up to four adult crew. The performance, power and responsive handling will impress experienced sailors; the stability will grow the confidence of less experienced sailors; while the load capacity and versatility will attract sailing schools and families.
As soon as you step aboard you will notice how stable the ARGO sailing platform is. The ARGO has a dynamic, yet forgiving ultra-stable hull shape and an easily controllable rig that is ideal for less experienced sailors but also has years of progression built in. All-in-all the ARGO is fast and exciting but also easily controllable and well mannered.
The ARGO has a contoured side deck to provide a really comfortable sit-in feel. A high freeboard, deep spacious cockpit and high boom, plus unrivalled stability and a smooth ride mean that the ARGO has a wonderfully reassuring, safe and secure feel.
There is comfortable capacity for up to four crew for instruction or to load up with friends and equipment for a group day out. The single line mainsail reefing system and roller reefing jib mean that the ARGO can easily be depowered dependent on crew and conditions. Topper’s unrivalled TRILAM construction means the boat will stand up to all the stresses of training and racing and is virtually maintenance free.
The ARGO has safety features such as a mast head float, righting lines and grab rails all fitted as standard. An epoxy centreboard and rudder and the highest specification equipment also all come as standard. Upgraded Sport Version includes trapeze system and spinnaker.
