ARGONAUT underwent an extensive refit in 2015/2016, which was managed by the owner who is an accomplished yacht captain. His experience managing numerous refits/new builds on boats 100'+ certainly shows. Everything put into the refit was carefully researched to ensure it added to the overall ambiance and livability. The finished product is a better than new Wilbur 38 and a showing will not disappoint. ARGONAUT is in bristol condition and must be seen to be appreciated.
