Ray White Marine just sold this 2012 Ferretti 881 Raised Pilot House ‘ARGENTO’, and for around $5.5m, it could’ve been yours.
Designed to suit Australia’s remote and often harsh coastline, Argento was built from specification by one of the continents most respected shipbuilders for long range cruising and is beautifully appointed with familiar Ferretti oak timbers and off-white interior finishes.
National Sales Manager Brock Rodwell of Ray White Marine announced the successful sale last week.
“Argento sleeps ten guests with four crew, with all suites appointed with stunning mosaic tiling & custom marble inserts. The ships navigation systems have all the commercial elements for extended expeditions in the South Pacific and beyond,” Brock said.
“It’s been a long sales process but Argento is truly an amazing vessel and one Ray White Marine’s significant successes so far this year.”
Built in GRP by Italian yard Ferretti to a design by Zuccon International, Argento was delivered in 2012 as one of the yard’s 881 raised pilot house models. An interior with oak joinery and off-white bulkheads accommodates 10 guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins, each with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have full en suite facilities.
The 881’s flying bridge is second to none in its class. There are two huge sun pads on the bridge, seating for at least 12, a secondary helm complete with a retractable instrument panel, a mini galley complete with fridge, stove top, sink and wet bar plus a large Jacuzzi hot tub.
Argento features gyro stabilisers, upgraded Kohler generators, two Idromar water makers and all the extra refrigeration a parched Australian could expect. Twin 2,000hp MTU engines give her a range of 1,400 nautical miles at 10 knots.
