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.

"I was living in Minneapolis and asked a friend (who had completed a seven year circumnavigation in their sailboat) for the name of a boat broker to help me find the "sailboat of my dreams". Without reservation they recommended Tom Harney of Jordan Yachts. The search and comparisons of a variety of boats produced the perfect boat for me. After the closing, Tom shared his time and marine contacts which were invaluable making the boat my own. I enjoyed four years of live-aboard sailing but when the t came time to sell the boat there wasn't any question that I would list the boat with Tom Harney. The video produced to sell my boat featured music, voice, and photography of professional quality and it attracted buyers from several states. I frequently use the words "above and beyond" to describe the high level of customer service I received by Tom Harney and Jordan Yachts." - AH SV DAKOTA
