In an effort to expand its presence into North America, luxury yacht tender builder Argos Nautic hired the Martin Flory Group.

South Florida-based Argos Nautic builds Coast Guard-approved RIBs.

Facheris Design drafted the 10-foot 305 yachting model for speed and onboard storage. With a 40-hp engine, it will reach planing speed in three seconds and has a top speed of 31 knots.

"We're especially pleased to be working with Argos Nautic," Martin Flory Group president Laura Martin said in a statement. "They're a relatively new company with a quality, luxury product that has enormous appeal in the mega- to maxiyacht community."
