The semi-custom JET11 from Argos Nautic moves with the speed and grace of a cheetah. Perfect for use as a luxurious tender serving 50′-70′ yachts, the 10′ 9″ RIB also makes the ideal multipurpose, five-passenger play boat, mirroring the cat’s acceleration and agility for unbridled exhilaration. And with the 2023 model, the bespoke builder will introduce reconfigured backrests for even great comfort.
While some tenders are best suited for utilitarian transport, the JET11 excels at virtually everything thrown its way and is easily reconfigured for the day’s needs. Seating is thoughtfully designed to maximize legroom and provide ample storage, whether for fishing gear or the spoils of a shopping spree. A large swim platform and extendable stainless steel boarding ladder create the perfect boat for snorkeling.
With its reliable and quiet 100 hp four-stroke engine, the 750 lb. RIB will top 48 mph. Yet with all this spirited power—enough for watersports—the JET11 provides a dry, civilized ride due to its refined hull design. It’s quick to plane and confidently carves turns at speed.
Because of the tender’s compact size and low weight, the Argos Nautic JET11 is ideal for storing on deck or davits. With a 5′ 8″ inflated beam and overall height of only 3′ 5″, it’s perfect for sliding into a yacht garage.
Unlike mass-produced boats, every JET11 is truly one of a kind. Each is a collaboration with the owner, selecting from a wide range of colors, fabrics and finishes. The result can reflect the aesthetic of the mothership it serves or be its own bold personal design statement.
Once the options are chosen, Argos Nautic crafts the JET11 to be NMMA Certified and meet ABYC standards. This commitment to product safety and quality is infused into every boat it builds. Hand-laid composites and ORCA Hypalon tubing provide durability and reliability. While the list of standard options rival that of the finest yachts, additional choices abound, including teak and holly flooring, metallic paint, hydraulic steering and European-styled hardware. The Argos Nautic JET11 starts well-equipped at $39,795.
