Chantiers Navals Garcia is well known internationally for their skill in crafting aluminum sailing yachts; in particular, their round-hulled, shoal draft Passoa's with centerboards and twin rudders. Built in Conde sur Noireau, France by a highly skilled group of craftsman, these yachts are prized by world cruisers looking to go “off the beaten path” for their safety and performance The Passoa series of 46 to 52-foot 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.

Sargo is a blue water cruiser's dream. Her beauty lies in her form and function 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 and popular 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. Her original, Italian owner was a veteran offshore shorthanded sailor who sailed between Europe and Panama. Her second/current owners of the last five years spent many years refitting and cruising long distance on a Valiant 40. Based on this experience, they recognized the great design/build of this Garcia. After purchasing 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 a Fairclough cover, where she remains today. Other demands are keeping the owners close to home and they’ve reluctantly decided to sell Sargo with the hope of finding a new owner that will venture forth and enjoy this very capable, world voyaging yacht.


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 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 tube tops 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 cruising sailors who had reached New Zealand that was conducted by Jimmy Cornell, a hard dodger was atop the list of most desirable features aboard. 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. Sargo has reduced exterior paint to her spars which are painted international orange for safety and visibility.

Sargo also 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 dinghy or water. A step to the main deck is formed by the liferaft locker and two top opening storage lockers.
