Passoa 46

47ft in

SARGO is a blue water cruising sailor’s dream. Her beauty lies in her function and form rather than glistening topside paint, varnished caprails, and decorator canvas. Nothing shouts out “serious cruising yacht” like an unpainted aluminum hull, hard dodger, scoop stern, stern arch, solar panels, and steering-vane. Built by the renowned Garcia Shipyard in France to the proven Passoa design series, SARGO has been optimized for sailing performance with high quality Antal winches and sailing hardware, performance sails, and low-stretch, Dyneema running rigging.

Chantiers Navals Garcia is well known internationally for crafting aluminum sailing yachts — in particular their round-hulled, shoal draft series of yachts with centerboards and twin rudders. Built in Conde sur Noireau, France by skilled shipfitter/welders, these sailing yachts are highly prized for their safety and performance by world cruisers looking to go “off the beaten path.” The Passoa series of 46ft to 52ft designs is the most popular and produced model. SARGO is one of the last Passoa’s built by the original Garcia founders before the Grand Large Yachting Group purchased this company to build their Allures lines of sailing yachts and Exploration series of Garcia’s.

Four-foot, shallow draft/centerboard design with “dry out” capability: A foil shaped centerboard swings down from an aluminum centerboard trunk located beneath the cabin sole/salon settee. Lifting is done with 4:1 block and tackle and line led to the cockpit where a winch easily raises the board. Lowering is done by gravity. Should one venture into shallow water with the board down, it will swing up on impact to prevent damage. When drying out, this boat tips forward on a wedge-shaped skeg and balances on a section of flat section of hull beneath the mast. Rudders are lifted clear of the beach.

Safe and strong with watertight bulkheads forward and aft. Integral aluminum water tanks, fuel tanks, and encapsulated iron ballast tanks form a double bottom. To keep this metal boat quiet, warm, cool, and dry, closed cell block foam insulates all living areas above the waterline.

Dual, heavy-duty aluminum rudders and rudder tubes are massively constructed. Rudder tubes top are above the waterline allowing rudder removal in the water. In the unlikely event one rudder is damaged, disconnecting the steering linkage allows use of the second rudder. The rudder blades are canted outboard, foil shaped, and balanced. A Whitlock gear and rod steering system provides friction free, responsive, and light steering from the carbon fiber wheel. A high performance NKE autopilot controls a strong and reliable Lecomble & Schmidt hydraulic autopilot drive.

In a survey of most desirable features conducted by Jimmy Cornell of cruising sailors who had reached New Zealand, a hard dodger was atop the list. SARGO has a bulletproof aluminum hard dodger with rounded acrylic ports, opening top hatches, and aft canvas protection to keep crew safe and comfortable.

Any cruising boat will require maintenance and upkeep. Eliminating exterior wood, waxed/polished gel coat, and painted surfaces greatly reduces maintenance and allows more time to relax and tour interesting destinations. And, the unpainted aluminum hull will be less of a target in poor/third world countries than a glistening “trophy” yacht.  SARGO has reduced exterior paint to her spars painted international orange spars for safety and visibility.

SARGO has one of the best scoop sterns found on any cruising boat. The swim platform is large enough to offload and rinse dive gear, clean fish or comfortably shower after swimming. Its height above the waterline is perfect: high enough to stay dry at anchor yet low enough for easy boarding from dingy or water. A step to the main deck is formed by the liferaft locker and two top opening storage lockers.

Why aluminum?

Aluminum is the hull material of choice for many knowledgeable cruising sailors.  Its light weight and strong.  Welding the hull, deck, framing, chainplates and deck hardware together results in a monolithic structure.  Aluminum has enough ductility to deform and dent when impacting a submerged object rather than facture.   Well-insulated aluminum yachts are warm, dry, and quiet below.  Unlike a fiberglass boat with hundreds of holes drilled in the deck for deck hardware a properly constructed aluminum yacht will be leak free; the bane of many cruising yachts.  Aluminum is the ideal material for  centerboard designs as the centerboard trunk and required framing needed to support lateral centerboard loads is easily engineered and fabricated; all one material of varying plate thickness.

Aluminum is also the easiest to maintain material if left unpainted.  A layer of aluminum oxide protects the exterior surfaces.  No need to wax, polish, paint, varnish, or repaint.  Simply wash with soap and water to keep clean.  Very few builders have the ability to “go naked.”  The Garcia craftsmen are skilled enough to fabricate round bilge, sailing yacht that is fair and free of distortion.  5086 H3 marine grade aluminum is used throughout.  Many builders hide their lumpy, wavering hulls with fairing compound and paint or take the easy way out and use chines to eliminate compound plating curves.  Many uniformed sailors question Aluminum’s corrosion concerns.  Avoiding or isolating dissimilar metals and a properly engineered and installed electrical system will eliminate corrosion concerns.

Shoal draft and the ability to dry out are huge advantages when plying the far corners of this planet or the US East Coast, Bahamas and Western Caribbean.  Spend time viewing Google earth and charts for the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Florida Keys, Belize, and Chesapeake Bay.  Amazing cruising areas like the Crooked-Aklins Islands region would be unavailable with even 6’ of draft.  Or venture to the Bay of Fundy, the UK, or Brittaney where drying out on huge tide heights and soft bottoms is de regeuer.  Even if you never take advantage of this skinny water capability, the off wind sailing characteristics of a centerboard boat are huge. With no keel to yaw around or trip over the motion and steering force are greatly reduced.  On paper, righting curves might favor a fixed keel.  In reality, with board raised, a centerboard boat will slide and is less like to trip and roll when caught beam to in very large seas.  Those who test sailing numerous Garcias and Allures centerboard/twin rudder boats, are amazed at how well they sail to windward.  The centerboard minimizes leeway, form stability keeps heel angle at 12 degrees and steering is fingertip due to the balanced, leeward outboard canting rudder being vertical.


The original, Italian owner was a veteran offshore shorthanded sailor who sailed between Europe and Panama.  The second owners purchased SARGO in Panama in 2012. They sailed home to New England and optimized the interior and systems for long range cruising. A winter 2015/2016 season in the Bahamas proved this boat’s mettle. Returning home to New England, SARGO was stored on the hard, under cover. The current owners, a family of four from Maine, purchased SARGO in Newburyport, MA in 2018 and continued to outfit, optimize, and tweak SARGO to a high state of cruising readiness. They sailed New England during the summers and spent one winter in the Caribbean and another in the Bahamas. They crossed the Atlantic in 2021 spending the winter in Portugal. Summer of 2022 was spent in the Med/Greece and then returning to Portugal in the fall where they’ve decided to settle. SARGO is too much boat to left in a marina for an extended period of time. It should be out sailing the world and available for new owners to do so.


SARGO has unpainted aluminum hull sides with black antifouling bottom paint. A long, angled skeg protects the saildrive and will tilt the boat forward when drying out to lift the twin rudders clear of the beach. A retractable bow thruster is fitted forward.  A 2” by 2” box section raised bulwark is fabricated at the hull/deck edge and provides secure footing around the deck.  Light grey Treadmaster traction pads are adhered around the deck for non-skid. Handrails, chainplates, cleats, padeyes is welded on for the utmost strength and watertight integrity.  Hatches, blocks, and stoppers are bolted into the deck on raised platforms.  Mooring cleats are located at the deck edge to eliminate the need for chocks.

Keeping crew aboard when sailing is a priority on any cruising boat. Deck security is superb with 30” high aluminum stanchions are set into sockets in the raised bulwark. From the midship’s gate aft to the pushpit, aluminum pipe is fitted (lower and upper) for a better handhold and security. Safety Orange Sunbrella weatherboards are fitted on each side.  Stainless steel rod runs between stanchions (upper and lower) from midships forward to the welded aluminum bow pulpit.  The stern pushpit is welded aluminum pipe with seats located outboard of the stern arch on each side.  A wide stern gate with double wire lifelines and snap hooks opens closes off the stern when underway. Numerous welded aluminum pipe grab rails are fitted around the deck including cockpit coaming top, cabin top, hard dodger sides and back, and foredeck. Anodized aluminum mast “granny bar” pulpits on each side of the mast will brace crewmembers raising or reefing sails.

Any yacht designed and built for long distance cruising should have ample storage access from on deck and also inside.  On deck storage is found in several lockers. The overboard draining bow locker is accessed through two hinged, guttered and gasketed hatches just aft of the anchor windlass. The chain locker is all the way forward and storage for fenders, lines, buckets and other deck gear is right below the openings. Two propane tanks are located aft in each corner and protected by covers. The most voluminous and impressive storage locker is the full beam, full height stern locker located beneath hatches in the helm seat.  Welded rungs allow one to climb down into this locker. An outboard storage bracket, emergency tiller, removable non-slip sole, and access to the steering system are located in this huge space.

A large, scoop stern should be high on the list of “positive features” for any cruising yacht. The Garcia Passoa has one of the best cruising sterns found on any boat. Welded handrails on the transom’s aft edge allow one to hold on when kayaking or boarding from dinghy. A folding swim ladder is stored in a centerline locker in the stern platform floor. When the Watt & Sea hydrogenator or Windpilot are mounted a fold-down, center-post, dive ladder to port is utilized. A large mooring cleat is to starboard. Two overboard draining lockers on either side of the dedicated liferaft locker are ideal locations to store outboard gas, snorkel gear, trash, and fishing gear. The step formed by these three lockers makes for easy deck, swim step, dinghy transition. A small solar panel is mounted atop the liferaft locker. The lower-level swim platform is very large for outdoor showering, fish cleaning, or lounging at water level.

A welded stern arch is another sensible design detail. SARGO’s welded aluminum arch is common to the Garcia Passoa design. Two large solar panels are mounted on a custom rack atop the arch. There is enough space on the arch to add an additional 425 watt solar panel if desired. An LED floodlight illuminates the aft deck and cockpit.  A large, hinged bow aft of the arch serves as a dinghy davit swinging the dinghy clear of the transom when lowered. A smaller hinged bow is forward to support the cockpit bimini.

SARGO’s T-shaped cockpit is well configured for sailing and lounging. A welded aluminum mainsheet arch locates the mainsheet well aft on the boom for sheeting efficiency and removes it from harm’s way in the cockpit. This arch also serves as a backbone for the welded, curved aluminum hard dodger. An array of cockpit canvas secures to the hard dodger and bimini frame providing shade and additional shelter from the elements. The cockpit seats measure 18” wide by 5’ long with 14” high, nicely angled coaming/seatbacks. The coamings measure 22” wide; ample for sitting or stepping on. Handrails are welded atop the coaming and storage cuddies are inside the coaming; great locations for winch handles, sailing gloves, line tails and other “quick to grasp” items. Helm seating is outboard and aft of the wheel. A custom, welded aluminum steering pedestal is fitted with a well-fitted and painted drink holder/bow thruster mount/cockpit table mount. The varnished wood and carbon fibre cockpit table stores below in dedicated mounting chocks when not in use.

SARGO’s sail plan and sailing hardware are optimized for performance and reliability. Antal and Harken blocks and line stoppers manage sheets, halyards, and other lines. All running rigging is high quality black, low-stretch Dyneema. Twelve Antal two speed self-tailing winches are spar and cockpit mounted for taming all sailing loads. Harken furlers are used for the genoa and jib. Dependable and long-lasting Hydranet Zoom Sails main, jib and staysail were purchased in 2020 and 2021 to optimize performance and minimize time on passage. Learning from singlehanded ocean racers, the gooseneck is mounted quite low to the deck with the boom angled up. This makes it easier to reach the mainsail luff and head and prevents the boom end from dragging in the water when rolling in large seas. To minimize friction and keep sailhandling systems simple, the halyards and reefing lines are mast/boom mounted. Anodized aluminum “granny bars” allow secure working at the mast base. Preventer/vang boom control lines on each side keep the mainsail in proper trim and minimize dynamic gooseneck and boom loads.

A successful cruising yacht is a comfortable home at sea and at anchor. Keeping seawater, rainwater, and cold out while providing light, ventilation, and good living and storage space will go a long way towards crew happiness. SARGO’s welded aluminum, insulated hull and high quality Goiot opening ports accomplish this elemental containment so much better than other materials.

Her layout nicely balances storage with bright and comfortable living/working areas. Starting forward, and aft of a watertight bulkhead, is the owner’s stateroom with centerline berth and office space. A pantry area is in the forward passageway to port. Centered and below the raised cabintop a large galley/salon/nav area has a linear galley to port, dinette to starboard, and nav area aft to starboard. Headroom in this area measures 6’ 2”. The head/shower is to port of the companionway. Aft to port is a work room with single bunk. Aft to starboard is a guest stateroom with double bunk.

One enters the accommodation through a hinged/sliding two foot-wide by 3 foot-tall aluminum/Lexan companionway hatch. Lower corner dogs and a rubber seal make this hatch virtually watertight. An aluminum ladder with six nonskid steps lifts up and out of the way for engine room forward access. The interior is bright and airy due to the many opening and fixed ports and white flat panel/wood trimmed interior finish. Handholds and handrails are well located around the interior for safe passage at sea.  Surfaces and underlying structure are solid, robust, and clean.  In the salon and aft cabin soles are solid teak boards on top of marine plywood. Red linoleum on top of plywood is used in the forward cabin.  Light, varnished wood trims white painted furniture and bulkheads. The overhead is white marine plywood secured with varnish wood battens. LED lighting is used throughout for energy efficiency.

Hull side staving is painted white. A large opening hatch is immediately above the berth. Open bookshelves are forward and up high below the deck edge. Two reading lights and a deck hatch to access the bow thruster are located on the forward bulkhead. A writing desk with 110V outlet is aft to starboard.

A pantry area is located between the forward stateroom and galley. A 2.4 cubic foot fridge and 1.9 cubic foot freezer are mounted below a top-opening Corian counter. These custom boxes are super insulated with 1” vacuum panels and foam. Open storage cabinets are outboard and forward of this refridgeration/counter. An overhead opening hatch, stainless steel grab rail, and inboard bookshelf complete this space.

The galley is along the port hull side and up a short step from the pantry. Swirled stainless steel sheet countertop and cabinet front make a highly functional fashion design statement. Tall backsplash in inboard fiddle keep food where it belongs when cooking. Locker and drawer faces are oiled teak. Wood hull side staving and cabintop insides enhance the elegance of this space. A stainless steel sink is located aft in the counter and measures 16” x 16” x 14” deep.  The sink is fitted with a single lever/pull out spray nozzle along with salt and freshwater foot pumps. A stainless-steel handrail runs the entire length of the countertop. An Alpes four burner stove and oven is fitted with “pot clamps” for cooking underway. Numerous cabinets and drawers store consumables and galleyware. Inboard a stainless-steel topped cabinet with hinged, curved-door cabinets on each end also has drawers and trash bin.

The large “U” shaped dinette is to starboard.  Port and starboards side seats measure 6’ 3” long and 23” wide and are fitted with lee cloths for sleeping offshore.  Storage bins are located beneath the seat cushions. The pedestal mounted table telescopes up and down. Reading lights, hull side staving, and opening cabinfront and top ports make this an entirely airy and comfortable salon. A Hella turbo fan is mounted below the nav station and dinette.

The forward-facing navigation station is immediately to starboard of the companionway ladder with good communication to the cockpit, salon, and galley. A cushioned seat has storage beneath it. The chart table is topped with carbon fiber and a hinged top access a chart storage drawer. Storage bins are located further forward below the chart table.  The electrical switch/breaker panel, navigation and communication electronics, are flush mounted in a cabinet wrapping below the deck edge around to the forward partial bulkhead.

A guest stateroom is located to starboard, aft of the nav station. A privacy curtain closes the door. A bunk measuring 6’ 2” long by 4’ 3” wide forward by 3’ wide aft has a thick foam mattress. Storage bins and hot water heater are located below this bunk. Engine starboard side access is inboard. A 30” long dressing seat is forward and outboard with storage below.  Hull side staving is oiled teak. An open bookshelf is located aft up high. Ventilation and light are provided by an opening port into the cockpit, and opening port into the cabin side, a reading light, and dome light. A 110V outlet and numerous clothing hooks complete this cabin. Headroom measures 6’ 6” forward of the berth.

To port of the companionway, through a locking privacy door, there is a head/shower space. A proven and reliable Lavac head is outboard. A Corian vanity with underhung oval sink is forward and fitted with both a foot pump and single lever hot/cold water mixer. Mirrors are found on the forward bulkhead and inner surface of the door. A stall shower with seat is aft. White bulkheads and Corian trim, and a hinged acrylic door surround this enclosure. A single lever mixer and hose mounted nozzle with bracket allow showering while seated or standing.

Sometimes boat gear and systems needs fixing or service. Having a dedicated work/storage room will make SARGO the envy of other cruisers using their dining tables to rebuild pumps. To port and aft of the head, this shop area has a workbench, vice, drawers, and storage bins.  A 6’ 3” long by 24” wide bunk with mattress is located up high and can be used for guests, crew, or children. An access engine access panel is inboard. Overhead dome light, 110V outlet, 12V outlet, cabin fan, and opening ports make this a great place to spend time and fix things.  This cabin was originally configured with a double berth and could be returned to such an arrangement for those wanting a true three stateroom boat.
