The Vessel

Argon is a 40 foot Tartan 4000 sloop built in 2014 with a home port of Boston. We spent the winter of 2017-2018 exploring the islands of the Caribbean and are very happy to be back in New England for the summer.

Why the name "Argon"? She is hull number eighteen (the 18th of her kind) and eighteen is the atomic number for the noble gas Argon. Argon was built in the Tartan Factory near Cleveland, OH and we were able to have many aspects of the design customized to our specs.

Argon has a very versatile sail plan including a huge main sail and two different (always rigged) head sails to choose from (a 90% jib and a 150% genoa). She is set up to perform fantastically and comfortably in a wide range of wind conditions. Argon has twin helms (steering wheels) making her ideal to bring a first-time helmsman up to speed.

The cockpit is very roomy and can easilly accomodate up to 6 passengers plus crew. Inside is a full galley, head (bathroom), and twin cabins.
