Exploration 60

Description:

In response to our clients who, having experienced the Exploration 52, see themselves onboard a larger yacht, Garcia Yachts 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.

Quite clearly, the designer has carried forward the DNA of previous Exploration yachts into our new flagship: the Exploration 60 is designed and optimised to sail anywhere in real comfort to unusually high safety standards. So on this yacht, you’ll find the deck saloon with a panoramic view that makes sheltered watchkeeping much easier from a true wheelhouse, the detailed attention paid to insulation with double glazing and insulated door, centralised weight distribution and external watch positions protected beneath the fixed canopy. As its name suggests, the Exploration 60 is all about exploring the most remote destinations: every function that makes mooring easier and safer is standard, including a davit for the tender, a water level platform for direct access to the sea and additional integrated mooring lines.

Being significantly longer than the 52, our new Exploration offers even more, with significant doghouse provided by its aft canopy, a cockpit separated into a helming position and a relaxation area, a sundeck – because the Exploration 60 is also designed for tropical cruising – a galley worthy of any home, and a lounge space in the saloon.

The Exploration 60 will be offered in three layouts: two-, three- or four-cabin. The big bonus of the two-cabin version is an large owner’s cabin aft. The interior is still at the design stage, but you will feature all the impeccable quality of finish and expertise you’d expect from Garcia. We also plan to offer a choice of two wood finishes.
