Navigate one of America's most historic waterways in a classic Chris Craft picnic boat. You will discover how nature has reclaimed a once-industrial hub and transformed the Delaware River.
The ARGONAUT is a mahogany all wood boat, built in 1961, and is 27 feet long. She can hold a total of 6 passengers plus 2 crew. Designed as a ‘picnic boat’ ARGONAUT has a small berth that can be converted into a bed for weekend trips.
