The boat sails all around the world on a range of programs including 90-day programs, 60 day programs and 21 day programs.
The Argo was designed at Langan and Associates in Newport, Rhode Island, and built in 2006 at the Marsun Shipyards in Samut Prakan, Thailand. since her launch, she has circumnavigated the world a number of times, giving hundreds of trainees the chance to sail the ocean, and broaden their education, and challenge them in ways beyond what can be taught in the classroom.
