In a world of imitation, the Argos Nautic 396 Yachting stands apart. As a RIB tender, it's an overachiever that'll outperform all comers in its class. But its uniqueness lies in its striking lines and panther-like stance.
Legendary Italian yacht designer Patrizio Facheris conceived the 13' 6" 396 Yachting to deliver all the functionality of a five-passenger tender with unprecedented storage, but cloaked in distinctive, one-of-a-kind styling. Not unlike SUVs from automotive brands renowned for luxury and performance, it's impressively fast, nimble and sumptuously comfortable.
Argos Nautic understands the emotional connection an owner develops with a boat which is why each is bespoke. Working with the customer, every 396 Yachting becomes unique in the individual selection of colors, patterns and textures. Combined with only the highest quality components and appointments, the tender will always draw the eye.
While unquestionably attractive, Facheris designed the 396 Yachting to come alive on the water. With a single 60 hp outboard, it'll reach speeds in excess of 35 mph. Handling like a sportscar, it carves turns and handles chop with aplomb, yet is stable and dry when a more refined ride is called for.
Ideal for yachts 70' and above, the Argos Nautic 396 Yachting weighs only 925 lbs. fully rigged, so it's ideal for use with a crane or davits. Starting at $35,000 well-equipped, it will be available for viewing at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 30–Nov. 3, booth 930.
