2016 Garcia Passoa CC 55

Carenage du Lavandou, 83, France

€750,000

This is an opportunity to buy a virtually new yacht. The circumstances surrounding her sale meant that for over a decade she was stored ashore unused until completion in 2016.  The price is now significantly reduced to Euros 750,000 due again to personal circumstances. 

Garcia Passoa CC55. First commissioned 2016. One of the most exceptional and impressive yachts we have seen in a long time, from the boards of respected designers Alain Mortain & Yannis Mavrikios and renowned manufacturers ‘Garcia Yachts’ for the hull and structure, Rameau Shipyard, Ethel for interior carpentry and decks. This yacht is truly built and equipped to travel the world in style. Incredibly strong aluminium hull and structure associated with the Garcia name, centreboard lifting keel, powerful cutter rig. Construction started in 2004, for personal reasons the yacht was put ashore, inside, the build on hold until December 2015. Finally completed, first launched and commissioned in 2016.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.
