40 years of passion in the building of exclusive yachts.
For 40 years, Garcia Yachting has been a reference in the custom-yacht world. There are more than 300 Garcia yachts, cruising all over the world, from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
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 recognized for the quality of their metal and woodwork, the experience and craftsmanship of the Garcia Yachting team will make your dreams come true.
The story continues. In 2010, Garcia Yachting joined forces with Allures Yachting and Outremer Yachting to create the Grand Large Yachting group of companies- the leading expert in blue ocean yachting. Garcia Yachting is the perfect complement to Allures and Outremer - bringing its prestigious know-how while also enjoying the benefits of new highly efficient industrials processes. Grand Large Yachting also initiated Grand Large Café, the community website (www.grandlargecafe.com).
Jean-Louis Garcia, founder of the shipyard: “I am pleased to see the shipyard gathering new momentum. The Allures and Outremer teams have specialized in long distance cruising for some time; they respect the values of Garcia’s and strive to add new and exciting pages to the long history of the shipyard.”
Grand Large Yachting, unique expertise, common ambition.
Welcome to the community.
