Palm Beach, Florida, October 5, 2010 – Argos Yachts has signed a contract to build a new custom Argos Gulfstream 70 (G70) for a private European buyer. The G70 is the latest addition to Tricon’s innovative, limited-edition Argos series. At a length of 70 feet (21.3 meters), the ruggedly stylish pilothouse yacht will be built at Tricon’s state-of-the-art shipyard, with launch scheduled for late 2011.
The new sale heralds the expansion of Tricon’s Argos Gulfstream series of luxury, offshore performance yachts. Argos Gulfstream yachts boast unsurpassed detailing, amenities and performance never before offered in vessels of similar size and class. The G70 complements Argos Gulfstream designs in lengths of 78, 82, 92 and 100 feet.
Purpose built for challenging seas and frequent Gulf Stream crossings, Argos Gulfstream yachts feature a unique profile, with a low center of gravity and significantly reduced roll. Her proprietary hull is the world’s first true hybrid, providing excellent range and high-performance speed.
The G70 will sleep six guests in three posh staterooms with ensuite heads. Additional luxury appointments include a large pilothouse, a spacious galley, a beautiful salon, a discrete day head, and a multipurpose split-level sundeck offering infinite possibilities for entertainers and sports enthusiasts alike. The G70 includes crew quarters for two.
The custom-built Argos G70 will be fitted with CAT C-12 715 HP engines. Tricon Marine expects a cruising speed of 17 knots and maximum speed of 20 knots, with a range of over 2,000 nautical miles at passage-making speeds.
Argos yachts are crafted under a limited-production guarantee, a first for the luxury yacht industry. Only three hulls across the entire series will be built each year, providing owners with the utmost distinction in ownership and superior investment value.
