The story of Garcia Yachts’ Exploration sailboats is at the combination of three stories. That of the Garcia brothers, founders of the shipyard; that of Jimmy Cornell, experienced navigator and “father of blue water cruising”; and that of the Grand Large Yachting Group and Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design, who have been designing remarkable sailing yachts together since early 2000. From their encounter were born the most successful exploration sailboats imaginable today.
Allures sailing yachts are aluminum centerboards with composite superstructures. Long-distance cruising boats that combine all the qualities of sailing for the open sea: reliable, very well equipped, practical, easy to handle, extremely seaworthy and comfortable. But they are also beautiful and elegant boats, with a style that is recognizable and stands out among the others. For 15 years, Allures Yachting has been the go-to shipyard for long-distance cruising, mobilizing the best of French know-how. But Allures Yachting’s excellence is also the result of close and lasting relationships with its boat owners, sailors who share their stories and feed our imaginations to offer you ever more innovative solutions, for absolute comfort both under way and at anchor.
RM Yachts are “composite”, as much as the best materials are carefully selected for each part of the boat. Plywood for the general structure – Epoxy stratification for the assembly – Iron for the keel – Polyester sandwich for the roof – And from now on epoxy sandwich for the planking above waterline (RM1180). Think about a wooden house, with concrete foundations, a roof with tiles and windows frames made of aluminum. RM are in constant development to improve our performance level as well as the quality of our products. Most of our engineers have been with us for almost 20 years, so they clearly benefit from a very valuable owners feedback.
