Argyle apartments are near the end of the North Fork of the New River. The apartments lie off Argyle Drive. North, the apartments run right up to the Broward Boulevard bridge which terminates the North Fork. South and eastward curves Argyle Drive, the apartments namesake. At the south end of Argyle Drive is a canal with private houses cut into the east bank of the North Fork. To the west is I-95 and Ft. Lauderdale’s historic African American district. South along the west bank of the North fork are Gill Isles. Further south is the 11th Avenue swing bridge. Argyle is best known for the least expensive liveaboard dockage in Ft. Lauderdale. It is zoned for liveaboard, and three apartment complexes take advantage.

The area has good draft and is home to many sailboats even up to the Broward bridge. Although lying along the main North Fork, the apartments are so far down river that the water is relatively safe for hurricanes. The docks are end nosed. You tie up one side to the east bank dock. The other end you tie to a mooring.

The sign says that 50% must be available to the public for dockage.

The only question is the rough neighborhood. John, who runs one of the liveaboard apartments and has 6 slips available, has a locked gate and well protected area. No place is safe in the world is perfectly safe. You have to always be careful.

"Dear Tom, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and Jordan Yachts, for listing and selling our latest yacht. Our relationship has spanned over 20 years. We met you for the first time at the Newport Boat Show in the early 1990s. In 1994 you sold us a Stephens 47 cutter that we lived aboard until 1998. You personally installed a holding tank for us on the Stevens. You sold that boat in 1999 for 10k more than we paid for it. In 2003 we found a Bristol 41.1 on Yacht World located in the Sarasota, FL area and brought you in on the boat inspection, and eventual sale, because we trusted you and valued your thoughts and opinions. Because of your work, we negotiated an acceptable deal. You even helped us bring the boat from Sarasota to Ft. Lauderdale. We’ve enjoyed our time with the Bristol for 12 years and decided last December to put her on the market. We were in N Palm Beach at the time and you came up from Ft. Lauderdale to visit and to see what we had done to the boat over the years we had owned her. Last May, after our final cruise to the Bahamas, you came to our marina in SC to list and photograph our boat. The pictures and video you provided to Yacht World were critical in getting the buyers here from the Atlanta, GA area to view, and eventually purchase the boat. The coordination and support provided by Kathy at Jordan Yachts made the whole process seamless. Unfortunately, at age 76, my sailing days in “big” boats are over, but wanted to thank you and Jordan Yachts for providing expert and professional help in finding, and eventually selling for us, quality sailboats over the last 20 years." - PJ, S/V Dreamseeker 2
