Following the UK 3-month lockdown in response to the global pandemic surrounding Covid-19, we took the decision to close our Argo Yachting service centres and offices in order to protect the safety of our staff and customers.
As you know, the health and safety of our customers, our employees and their families is our number one priority. In light of recent developments with the spread of Covid-19 throughout Europe, we would like to bring you an important update.
It’s easy to imagine that selling your boat is simply a case of allowing people to witness its loveliness. But however appealing your yacht might be and however much you’ve enjoyed the ownership experience, it’s important to recognise that your bias is not necessarily shared by anyone else.
Alongside our sister companies, we are looking forward to exhibiting at the 37th annual Palma International Boat Show with a range of brokerage listings on display and members of the Argo team available to discuss your boating options, whether you’re looking to buy or sell.
Yachts are complex pieces of equipment, exposed to a wildly abusive environment in which heat, humidity, salt, vibration and impact are par for the course. In order to ensure that your investment is protected; that your boat performs at its best; and that your recreation is as safe, pleasant and reliable as possible, it’s important for the yacht owner to know how best to maintain his yacht and at what point to stop and call in the professionals.
The appeal of the yachting lifestyle and yacht ownership is extraordinary. The freedom of the open sea; the excitement of fresh destinations; the simple exclusivity of separation from the land; the sheer indulgence of lazy aft deck lunches under a Mediterranean sun.
There are several basic things you tend to look for when choosing the best berth in an idyllic marina location. It needs to be multilingual and professionally managed, with a reliable climate and a nearby airport. It needs to be in a place that has the power to excite in its own right, alongside decent proximity to some interesting cruising grounds.
The most enjoyable high end yacht shows are not always the largest, the most exclusive or the best known. On the contrary, enjoying a show to the utmost is often as much about the broader venue as the scale and calibre of the exhibition spaces.
When it comes to selling your yacht, no one works harder than Argo. Currently we’re offering to go one step further by offering a free marina display at the Swanwick Used Boat Show 2019 when you list with us.**
Over the years, the classic yacht tenders have often been associated with one of two highly polarised ideas. While some have tended to envision prosaic little inflatable boats with finger-trap slats and portable outboards, others bring to mind the polished wood and catwalk glitter of classical Italian runabouts. But the tender market is now far more diverse and sophisticated than that.
Argo Yachting are proud to be represented at two upcoming boat shows this spring season. We would like to welcome you to the Palma International Boat Show and the British Motor Yacht Show in Southampton, to meet our Argo Yachting team, find out more about our services and listings and to discover a selection of brokerage boats currently for sale with us.
