Steamseilskipet S/S Argo bygget 1860 i Hull, England av C. & W. Earle. Båten gikk i i emigrantfrakt hos Wilson Lines. I perioden 1880 - 1889 gikk båten sporadisk i rute Trondheim - Kristiansund - Ålesund - Hull.
Tonnage was 716 tons gross, 631 under deck and 461 net. Rigging: iron single screw steam Schooner, 1 deck, 2 tiers of beams and 5 bulkheads. Propulsion: compound engine with 2 inverted cylinders of 31 and 58 in. diameter respectively, stroke 30 inches delivering 120 horsepower. She had a new engine in 1870 and new boiler in 1878. The engine was built by the same company as the hull. In 1867 she was on a regular route together with the S/S Oder between Christiania - Christiansand and Hull. Together the two ships maintained a weekly service. She was steady on the Christiania service until 1870, when she was taken off the service and was fitted with a new engine. In 1874 she was used for the Trondheim - Hull service, but was not to become regular on that route. The following years she was seen sporadically in that service.
