First Look Video: Garcia 54

Planning to cross the Atlantic? Then a boat like the Garcia 54 is in order.

If you’re looking for a trans-Atlantic capable boat you might want to know more about the Garcia 54, which we deemed worthy of a First Look video when we found it at the Cannes boat show. This is a boat you could call a ship, with big-water features like an aluminum hull, a ballasted keel, and a huge electronics display at the helm. This boat even has both bow and stern thrusters. Here’s the video:

The engine room may be the most impressive part of this boat – when’s the last time you saw a pleasure craft with desalinators? A back-up powerplant, in the form of a pod drive? This one’s seriously impressive, folks.

This Garcia 54 has already been transatlantic… twice.
