About Argos

The boat was purchased by me in 2017. During 2018 I regularly sailed with the ship. Mostly on the North Sea, to learn about the ship, to see what I want to have changed for offshore sailing and of course to enjoy sailing her.
The boat will be on shore during the winter of 2018/2019 for maintenance and adjustments In April 2019 she will be back in the water

Why I bought this ship

My wishes are a solid boat to sail the oceans with the possibility to sail solo. Furthermore, I looked for spacious compartments with headroom for me and long sleeping places. This is a challenge because of my height of 6 ft 7’(202 cm).
This Contest 48cs is a solid Lloyds class A built ship, which I can sail alone, does well in terms of speed, has a lot of space within and enough headroom She has enough luxury to keep it pleasant. In addition, I just think it’s a nice boat.
