New Garcia Exploration 45 developed with Jimmy Cornell

2013-06-26

Jimmy Cornell, the doyen of world cruising, has chosen GARCIA YACHTING to build his new yacht to confront the challenges of the Northwest Passage.

Jimmy Cornell, best-selling nautical author, founder of the ARC and organiser of several round the world rallies, is preparing for a voyage that promises to be the culmination of his sailing life. During the summer of 2014, Jimmy Cornell will sail his new yacht in his latest project, the Blue Planet Odyssey, a global event aiming to raise awareness of the effects of climate change. A transit of the Northwest Passage in the company of other like-minded sailors will highlight the direct consequences of those changes. To accomplish that voyage, Jimmy conceived the ideal boat, perfectly suited for both high latitude and tropical sailing. In recognition of their skills and expertise, the team at Garcia Yachting consider it an honour and privilege to have been asked to build this exceptional yacht for an exceptional sailor.
"Building this yacht for Jimmy Cornell is like a dream come true," says Stephan Constance, chairman of Grand Large Yachting. "It's like producing an album for your rock idol. For the last few months all of us at Garcia Yachting have responded with all our passion and given our best to turn this ambitious project into reality."
At their Norman boatyard in Condé-sur-Noireau (Calvados), the skilful team of Garcia Yachting is giving birth to the Garcia Exploration 45, an aluminium yacht of 13.50 meters incorporating some unique features never seen in a yacht of this type before. The prototype of Jimmy Cornell will be launched in April 2014 and named Aventura IV, in line with the previous boats of the famous navigator.


What acknowledgement!
"I had to quickly find a suitable boat for that voyage," states Jimmy Cornell, "and, having looked around at all that was available, I decided that finally I had an unmissable opportunity to come up with a concept which would be nearest to that elusive ideal cruising boat. I was extremely fortunate in being able to infect with my enthusiasm both the team at Garcia Yachting, in my view the best aluminium yacht builders in the world, and also Olivier Racoupeau, one of France's top yacht designers".
This exciting collaboration proves the validity of what has been for the last ten years the philosophy of Grand Large Yachting, a group of specialist boat builders made up of the brands Allures Yachting, Garcia Yachting and Outremer Yachting. For the founders, Stephan Constance and Xavier Desmarest, the key to the success of their venture lies in the ability of their teams to respond to the needs of each client by providing all necessary expertise. This requires and even bolder approach when it comes to a project pioneered by Jimmy Cornell.

A truly unique yacht
"My requirements were very clear: a strong, fast, comfortable, functional and easily handled boat perfectly suited for both high latitude and tropical sailing," explains Jimmy Cornell."What was new, however, was my insistence on a deck saloon that would ensure almost all-round visibility. This, and an inside steering position, was something that had never been tried before on a centreboard yacht. The designer has produced what I believe to be the perfect solution: a comfortable and spacious deck saloon with 270° vision, also ideal for watchkeeping and navigation."
The Garcia Exploration 45 concept has the benefit of a font of unmatched experience in the field of long distance cruising. While Jimmy Cornell will realise with this boat a masterpiece based on a life dedicated to offshore navigation, Garcia Yachting's team of designers and builders will contribute more than three decades of expertise in producing high quality yachts for long distance navigators.
"This project is highly motivating for all of us at Garcia Yachting. Its originality has fired up our creativity in order to come up with original technical solutions, but this is something that is hardwired into the DNA of our boatyard. The prospect of seeing soon a Garcia Exploration 45 transit the legendary Northwest Passage with Jimmy at the helm has spurred us all to rise to this new challenge!" declares Benoit Lebizay, manager of Garcia Yachting.

Born in Romania, Jimmy Cornell studied economics in Bucharest before emigrating to London where he became a reporter for the BBC World Service. At the age of 35, he left with his wife and two children (5 and 7) on a six year round the world voyage, during which time they visited 70 countries. An accomplished sailor and successful author, in the last four decades, Jimmy Cornell has sailed 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica and Alaska. Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water cruising with the help of Jimmy Cornell's books, among them the bestseller World Cruising Routes. With 150,000 copies sold to date, this is one of the best-selling nautical publications in the world. In 2011, together with his son Ivan, Jimmy created Cornell's Ocean Atlas, the first set of pilot charts to be based on up-to-date satellite data of world winds and currents.

Jimmy Cornell's latest project is the Blue Planet Odyssey (2014-2017), a round the world event aimed at raising awareness of the global effects of climate change. Participants in the Blue Planet Odyssey will sail either a southern warm-water route via the Panama Canal, or a northern high-latitude route that will transit the Northwest Passage. www.blueplanetodyssey.com

Jorge Ventura reports on the GT54 Atlantic crossing

2012-11-28

 

Ask any captain about delivering the first unit of a new model and he will say , maybe in different words , that it is always an exciting challenge.

This  hull nº1 was the Garcia Trawler 54 , and she is new in many ways. Most long distance sailors are familiar with the Garcia brand  and its sailboats  that cruise  all latitudes and all weathers , so a trawler was a surprise.

Another thing delivery captains consider a challenge is a tight schedule, and this one was as tight as could be , because she was on display at the Cannes Boat Show in September, so we could not depart before it ended, and she was bound for the Annapolis Boat Show in October, 24 days and 4300 miles apart.

Globe Skipper reporting on the Garcia Trawler 54 maiden voyage

2012-11-28

 

When boarding the Garcia Trawler 54 for the first time, it is difficult to define her style…one thing for sure, you can feel the offshore spirit. Quickly, everything is fluid, the circulation is easy, no need to be a professional  sailor to understand that this new model is the result of a longstanding experience. When reaching the heart of the boat, her engine room, the first words that come to mind are “simple, intuitive and safe”.
