About Garcia Yachts

Garcia Yachting’s experience is second to none in the construction of custom 50 to 115 feet luxury aluminium sailing yachts. These exclusive handmade yachts represent the top of the range of the French yachting industry.

Internationally recognised for the quality of their metal and woodwork, the experience and craftsmanship of the Garcia Yachting team will make your dreams come true.

A dream team

The Garcia sailing yachts are designed by a team of first-class professionals in the nautical industry.

The naval architecture is the responsibility of some of the most renowned design offices, such as Berret- Racoupeau Yacht Design, Joubert-Nivelt Yacht Design or Gilles Vaton Yacht Design who have been working with leading shipyards for years. They have developed an expertise in ocean-going yachts – notably aluminium hulls. They also specialise in lifting centerboarders.

They use the best interior designers, such as Pierre Frutschi; his expertise enables the best use of living space.

In response to our clients who, having experienced the Exploration 52, see themselves on board a larger yacht, Garcia Yachting has once again worked with Olivier Racoupeau to create the Exploration 60. So why a 60-footer? Because without doubt, it’s offering greater range, more stowage and even more refined comfort, while remaining – like the rest of the range – easy to handle for a couple without a crew, because everything is immediately to hand for the helm.
