ARGONAUT is a Swan 44 for which time has stood still. She had been inside storage under custom tent for the last 13 years and prior to that, was stored also indoors for several years. Boat deck and topsides covered with soft fabric inside the shed and the interior heated during the winter months. As such, her interior woodwork is so far above average in condition, never mind the teak decks. This owner has been meticulously restoring her, and probably spent a year alone on removing corrosion on the toerails and repainting them! All the non-teak surfaces on deck are fresh white awlgrip, winches are serviced, sst fittings are polished, boom is painted, and her owner is still enthusiastic!
ARGONAUT is located at the North Yard Brewers Pilot Point. The engine has been kicked over, with a new ABM heavy duty battery installed. She is under shrinkwrap, winches serviced and installed, and as soon as the shrink wrap comes off, the bow and stern pulpit will go back on. She will be launched as soon as good weather has arrived, and recommissioned.
