Falmouth Cutter-style Auxiliary Sloop "Argo"
$24,950 MAKE AN OFFER
“Argo”, a pretty little cruiser with the business-like lines of a Falmouth Cutter. This delightful auxiliary cruiser in excellent condition is ready to cruise the coast.
She has undergone many upgrades (including a major refit) since 2005. In the surveyor's words, “Argo has had continuous professional attention and is currently in a good and seaworthy condition”. She was re-powered with a re-conditioned Perkins Perama (30hp) in June 2020 by Hughes Marine.
Look closely at the pictures, I am sure you will agree “Argo” is “neat as a pin” in all respects.
