The Argos Nautic 396 weighs 925 pounds and can be stowed in a yacht garage.

Argos Nautic, a builder of semicustom luxury tenders, is debuting its newest model at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which opens Wednesday.

The Patrizio Facheris-designed 396 is a 13-foot RIB with classic teak and holly flooring and custom stainless steel fittings.

It has a 6.8-foot beam, seating with legroom for five and hidden storage.

Different from production boat manufacturing, building a 396 is a hands-on process. Argos Nautic works with the customer to select colors, finishes and textures, whether to match the mother vessel or the latest trends.

The tender comes with an Isotta tilt steering wheel and Fusion audio system. It’s powered by one 40-to-70-hp outboard.

At 925 pounds, the Nautic 396 is easily hoisted onto davits or craned up onto a deck, the company said. It can be stowed in a yacht garage. The price starts at $35,000.
