LISTING SAYS: A Jean Berret and Olivier Racoupeau design, she is one of the finest Garcias ever built along with the 85 and the 90. A fabulous luxury yacht, she is the very essence of the Garcia One Offs!
Following the success of the first Garcia Yacht 65: Mary Blue III, the Garcia yard launched the study of its famous 75’: Annka 1.
Still created in collaboration with naval architects Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design, the yard was keen to offer a rather special yacht to satisfy even the most demanding long-distance cruising enthusiasts.
The result: a sublime yacht built of Sealium marine aluminium. The hull is very much geared up for long-distance cruising. Furthermore the boat benefits from all the quality and expertise that has become synonymous with the Garcia yard in terms of manufacture and welding. Slender waterlines and an extraordinary finish are just some of the benefits.
The deck layout is also extremely efficient and the mainsail traveller sheet is situated close to the winches, just aft of the wheels, for easy trimming.
Both spacious and extremely well protected, the cockpit offers its owners and guests a level of comfort worthy of a 100’, which is a must for a craft designed to circumnavigate the globe.
Added to this, the interior fit-out has been entrusted to Pierre Frutschi and absolutely nothing has been left to chance for the guests. Boasting a highly functional fit-out, that is both contemporary and bright, she also features a spacious, designer saloon that is well-crafted, cabins with all the comfort of a 75’ monohull and the added bonus of a superb master cabin for the owner: A faultless model!
A boat with just one previous owner, she was originally launched in October 2009. She features an extremely comprehensive equipment specification suitable for all types of sailing. Complete refit in New Zealand in 2012, simply Sublime! CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS or see it in person at the Seattle Boat Show Jan 23 – Jan 31
WE SAY: Having built thousands of sailboats (Columbia, Gulfstar) my family knows those better than just about any other type of boat. This custom sailboat is a work of art and rare opportunity to own a spectacular sailing yacht. With features such as a magnetic floor to secure loose furniture and contemporary interior appointments you will truly own a one-of-a-kind!
