Why 60 ft?
The Garcia Exploration 60 is the size of sailboat that offers more range, more storage volume, more comfort and more refinement. All this while remaining, like the rest of the range, easy to handle for an uncrewed couple thanks to the manoeuvres deferred in the cockpit.
Considerably longer than the 52, our new Exploration offers much more with a large hard top with a canopy towards the stern, a cockpit with the steering area well separated from the relaxation area and a sundeck. The Exploration 60 is also designed for tropical cruising. There is a real kitchen and a very large and comfortable saloon.
Garcia Exploration 60 – Exterior
We find in this yacht the deck saloon with the panoramic view, ideal for the interior command post complete with a real wheelhouse, the extreme care, the insulation with double glazing and insulated doors, weight distribution amidships and external guard posts protected by the hard top.
As the name suggests, the Exploration is ideal for any destination and sailing plan. All the facilities for mooring and anchoring are provided: the roll-bar with davits for the tender, the stern platform for easy access to the sea, integrated additional mooring lines.
The refinement of the lines doesn’t detract from the functions expected for potentially extreme sailing conditions. On the contrary, it serves them, just like the rigid cap, something that is now inseparable from the range. From the outside you will appreciate the dynamics, while from its shelter and its large glass panels, you’ll never tire of contemplating the elements that surround you. The deck, totally flush in front of the characteristic panoramic coachroof, makes it easy to move around, sailing manoeuvres are safer, as is going forward, to the fine bow, always robust, and more elegant than ever.
Garcia Exploration 60 – Interior
If you are won over by the exterior, you won’t fail to be seduced by the layouts created by interior designer Isabelle Racoupeau.
Only two steps from the vast cockpit, unrivalled space, light and view of the outside await you.
In a cosy-marine atmosphere, with refined elegance, the deck saloon, interior helm station and saloon redefine the notions of space on board. Several layout plans have been created to meet different programmes, combining owner’s and guest cabins, crew and more technical areas.
Offering better, providing more, that was the philosophy that guided the interior design of this outstanding sixty-foot boat.
We’ve taken advantage of every centimetre to offer more comfort here, more space there, whether it’s for work or rest. We have used the available volumes to provide new functions: a lounge area on the port side, an independent interior helm station, a crew cabin, a master cabin forward or aft, multiple technical areas and even a sauna, the range of possibilities offered by Exploration 60 will certainly surprise you.
This unique creation is served by materials with irreproachable aesthetic and technical qualities, and lighting designed with extreme care for the different phases of life on board while highlighting the exceptional cabinet-making work carried out in the type of wood you have selected.

A ship that can be controlled with the tips of your fingers from one of the two magnificent steering consoles, which transmit with millimetre precision the slightest of your intentions to the twin rudders.
By protecting its crew, offering them perfect handling ergonomics, an unrivalled view from the cockpit and from the inside, our flagship takes you to a new dimension of exploration sailboats.
The cockpit becomes an outdoor lounge, the sugarscoop becomes even more versatile, sometimes a diving platform, boarding platform or swimming platform.
Its generous dimensions make it possible to combine luxurious living spaces, technical areas and storage volumes, making it possible to plan to go ever further, for even longer… with or without crew.
