  1. Rossinavi Yachts 48-meter Explorer "Argo"

    ARGO has been designed as a proper exploration and support yacht, with purposeful styling targeted at functionality and operational considerations. With a custom designed crane capable of launching and recovering up to four 12m tenders and/or submarines or amphibious vehicles from two decks, it is an ideal shadow yacht or standalone expedition yacht. Unique at this size, ARGO offers a private elevated owner's deck, including a full beam cabin, a private terrace, a study and a further family or nanny cabin, VIP stateroom or indeed captain cabin.
  2. Also unique at the size is the total segregation of the crew block, which enjoys its own vertical circulation right up to the bridge, and down to a deck housing laundry, utility, stores. At main deck level there is a most handsome open plan saloon/dining/bar area which opens to the sea and to a protected terrace aft, creating a separation to the tender deck. The four guest staterooms all enjoy panoramic windows to the sea with direct access to the saloon. The forward guest staterooms include Pullman berths, so potentially ARGO could take the full MCA guest complement of 12 guests.
  3. Designed to optimize accommodation and internal volume within the constraints of the MCA 500 Gross Tonnage rule, it offers great internal and external space without the additional costs and complexity of a yacht in excess of 500GT, and indeed without the crew and operational restrictions and requirements of a yacht in excess of 500GT.
  4. The aft deck is fitted out to suit touch-and-go helicopter use. Further, as an option, the lower deck aft can be fitted out to include a proper beach club, with a wide opening aft to the full beam swim platform. The generous elevated aft deck can be accessed directly from the main deck terrace, and a further spiral stair provides easy access to the crow’s nest with 360 degree views.
  5. The top observation deck is planned under louvres to control the sun and offer amazing all-round views. ARGO makes full use of the latest glass technology, with uninterrupted windows all-round the bridge and owner’s deck. ARGO is targeted to be elegant and beautifully proportioned, without pretending to be a ‘gin palace’ – it makes a purposeful, yet quite unique statement totally in keeping with a purposeful, highly versatile and totally timeless yacht.
  6. The yacht is to be constructed totally in aluminum and Rossinavi’s alloy technology will allow ARGO to obtain a “D” Ice Class. This yacht has a nautical range of more that 5000 nautical miles. The two hatches of the large garage placed on the aft deck of ARGO has a pantographic opening system; chosen for functionality to avoid any kind of problems due to wind presence during the launch/boarding of the toys. The pantographic hatch system is produced by Rossinavi's workshop. ARGO is the first project they are developing together with Ken Freivokh. ARGO has also an alternative propulsion system, the pod version. This alternative proposal is placing two Rolls-Royce pods instead of the traditional shaft lines system with propellers. This proposal is perfect for those aiming to cruise in perfect silence with extra maneuverability, however the pod system will negate the garage.
