Garcia Exploration 45v2

Garcia YachtingGarcia Exploration 45v2

 

Conceived by Jimmy Cornell and Garcia Yachting for his Blue Planet Odyssey, the Exploration 45v2 is designed and constructed for serious high latitude and tropical sailing. Featuring a centerboard for shallow draft capability, deck saloon with 270 degree views, insulated aluminum hull with collision bulkheads and watertight companionway, and bulletproof systems with unparalleled access, this is a true world cruising boat unlike any other.

In 2016 Garcia upped the ante on the 45 by taking input from owners and refining their boats based on other models. To be sure, it’s one of the boatbuilder’s hallmarks, and they’ve made some changes to the Exploration 45 (now the 45v2) that truly make the boat better and more sailor friendly including a hard dodger with better visibility, a galley with more counter space and a technical room with excellent storage.
