Argyll is a very elegant and classic cruiser/racing yacht, with endless white sails and soft cushioning wood, making her one of the most dramatic sights on the glorious Cote D'Azur. Designed by Olin Stephens and built by Simms Brothers of Massachusetts USA in 1948. She was design no. 628 from Sparkman & Stephens, described on her lines plan as a ‘40ft 0in LWL Aux. Yawl for W.T. Moore’. The drawing is dated 2/13/46. She is 57’ 4½’ overall, with a beam of 12’9’ and draught of 8’0’. She was, according to Olin Stephens, a development of the previous year’s Bermuda race winner, Gesture, and was known to be one of his favourites.
