MV Argo Liveaboard is a rare combination of work ship and luxury yacht. Built to pamper eighteen discriminating passengers in eight, spacious, well-appointed staterooms. She is a 130-foot vessel (40 meters) with a full global reach.
Fourteen well-seasoned crew look after the liveaboard, the projects and the guest’s every need. MV Argo was conceived of to serve as the ultimate platform for a deep diving submersible as well as for remote operating vehicle (R.O.V.) deployment. She offers heavy lift capabilities, stability and ample deck space for any chore imaginable. Extended, multi-task cruses are our forte.
A comfortable and stylish lounge, dining area and sun deck are the social areas. The ambience is completed with original, undersea themed artwork throughout. The well-equipped galley enables the ship`s chefs to prepare fresh, international level, four-star cuisine for meal times or at the “drop of a hat”.
On board accessories consist of all standard diving gear including scuba, Nitrox and rebreather facilities. Three, powerful, 24-foot skiffs serve as tender-boats, which perform submersible tracking duties, shepherding of divers to remote sites, ship-to-shore transfers and any other conceivable recreational or support activities.
The vessel is equipped with two, 24-foot heavy-duty fiberglass dive boats with integral racks for scuba and rebreather diving equipment. These skiffs are powered by fumeless 4-cycle, 115 HP twin-outboard motors that can bring you rapidly to any dive site within an extended, safe radius of the mother ship. The skiffs are further equipped with VHF radios, depth sounders and portable GPS. A T-Roof and rigid bow cover is also mounted on these vessels for your comfort.
MV ARGO liveaboard is equipped with Nitrox Gas Blending Systems, Partial Pressure – as well as Membrane Compressor, Nitrox Dive Computers, and other technical SCUBA diving equipment and supplies to support these operations. We are fully capable of supporting all types of totally Closed-Circuit Rebreathers (CCR).
