CMC Marine: Argo system installed aboard two new yachts

The new flagship of the Azimut Yachts Grande collection and the new Flexplorer from Cantieri delle Marche are equipped with the Argo system, to improve comfort, safety, and fuel efficiency while under way. 

Argo, CMC Marine’s route control system, has conquered two new yachts: it was recently installed aboard the 40-meter Flexplorer “Aurelia” of Cantieri delle Marche and the new Grande Trideck of Azimut Yachts.

The Pisan company’s new system, drawing from years of experience onboard yachts and superyachts, was designed to integrate the active surfaces on the boat; the aim is to coordinate the fins and rudders to ensure optimal course stability and, consequently, considerable fuel savings.

Since the development of the two innovative stabilizing fin series, Stabilis Electra and Waveless, and the Directa wheelhouse, the Argo solution to make them communicate and work in harmony was the natural next step.Azimut Grande Trideck_RenderingAzimut Grande Trideck_Rendering

On yachts without Argo integration, the stabilizing fins would perceive the motion induced by the rudders and activate automatically to counteract it, thus causing the rudder to respond and resume the original course; the two systems continuously fight in a micro-correction loop. Thanks to the Argo control system, it is possible to avoid this cycle of continuous movements, thus ensuring excellent course stability, especially in weight bearing and yaw control, as well as a more contained wake, which also leads to fuel savings.
Launched on the market in 2020, Argo is currently installed onboard several yachts, equipped with a variety of systems, both from CMC Marine and other brands. A Directa 140 wheelhouse, 4 Long Range stabilizing fins and Dualis thrusters, all by CMC Marine, are onboard MY Aurelia of Cantiere delle Marche; the Azimut Trideck, on the other hand, has electro-hydraulic steering by a third company, together with High Speed stabilizer fins and Dualis thrusters from CMC Marine.
Over the next 12 months, Argo will be installed aboard another 15 latest generation yachts.
