Renowned for its expertise in ocean-cruising yachts building, with more than 300 units sailing over the world, Garcia Yachting expands its offer with a new model of catamaran, aluminum structure and composite coach-roof, the Explocat 52.

Garcia Yachting Explocat 52 

Developed in close cooperation between the naval architect Pierre Delion and Garcia Yachting, the Explocat 52 is a seaworthy, safe and comfortable boat, designed for Tropics and High latitudes sailing. 

Based on the experience acquired by the shipyard with the Exploration monohull range, this new unit features all qualities for long-distance cruising. 

The circumnavigators will find all the key specifications they expect. 

High latitude and long-distance cruising ready:

With the comfort of a catamaran and even more:

In addition to the 2 versions of layout, the aluminum structure allows the shipyard to adapt and customize the interior to the owner requirements. 

Either 3 or 4 cabins version, the Explocat 52 offers to demanding sailors, for private or professional use, a high level of reliability, comfort and seaworthiness in all latitudes. Far from the mass production compromises, each Explocat 52 will be unique to perfectly match her owners sailing program.
