Garcia Yachting has been building aluminum sailboats for over 40 years and they have put their offshore sailing expertise into building a 54' aluminum trawler that offers precision engineering with a contemporary style.
Le Trawler, under the umbrella company of Grand Large Yachting (grande large is French for “offshore”) was built at Garcia's northern yard in Normandy and launched in August 2012.
Le Trawler was a hull designed for a program. The philosophy of building Le Trawler was that it would be a smooth and better way of getting through the water with long distance capabilities, low fuel consumption, designed stability, and safety as foremost requirements. The premise was to build the vessel around the propulsion to determine what was needed for hydrodynamic efficiency, maximum power at full speed, and then custom design a propeller combined with a reductor for complete synchronization; then subsequently design the hull for optimal movement, establish a desired weight, and finally build the yacht around the parameters given.
Pricing is based on the Euro and conversion into other currencies will be made at the time of order. Some features in this listing are included on the demo vessel and include options not included on the standard base price for a new yacht.
Two staterooms and three heads includes a day head. Additional layout options available.
Interior General Characteristics

When stepping inside, you know the euro styling is meant to appeal to those with interest in a contemporary milieu. The large windows allow for plenty of natural lighting as well as fresh air ventilation from the 3 opening windows. Starboard side has two large seats, hide-away Samsung flat screen TV, and numerous large drawers and cabinets for stowage. Port side provides seating for 8 at the large hi/lo dining table which converts to a bed. The beneath seats storage has finished cabinets with oak veneers, as do all of the storage cabinets throughout the boat.The lightness and brightness is heightened by the use of white faux leather headliners and wall coverings and synthetic marble countertops. The light oak cabinetry is grain matched and well executed. The 6’5” headroom is carried throughout the interior cabins.

The galley is sleek and neat and has lots of smart concepts maximizing the French chef's cuisine couture. Facing the salon, the chef can do dish duty while participating in salon chatter, yet there's a visual separation provided by a service counter with built in acrylic canisters above the large, overly deep square stainless steel and smaller rectangular sinks. Beneath the opening window portside is the Bosch 3 burner stove, oven, and more cabinets. Large cabinets and drawers are starboardside beneath a convenient prep area that can also double as a service platform. The forward side of the galley has the Isoderm refrigerator and freezer with large storage bins above concealed by stylish easy swing-up doors. Countertops have either molded fiddles and/or have sculpted inserts where items can be inset on their own or placed on the fitted trays which double as serving trays. Compactness made convenient.

The views from the pilothouse are panoramic. The 10 large tinted 12mm Triplex tempered glass windows provide great visibility; cross-ventilation is provided by the one opening window and the open starboardside entry door. In addition to the demisters, the windows are electrically heated for those venturing into colder climes. There are several chart drawers; cabinets are well placed in all available spaces. The ergonomically designed L-shaped settee, with large storage bins beneath, comfortably seats 6 and also coverts to a pilot berth.
The navigation and electronics console presents the Caterpillar and Volvo engine displays and controls, Onan displays and controls, as well as the Furuno suite of electronics for charting, navigating, and communicating. The Max Power controls are for bow and stern thruster.
The clean lines of the console don’t inhibit the inclusion of more operational goodies like Hepworth wipers with speed controls (and yes, they move in unison regardless of speed), Jabsco remote search light, fuel filter gauges, tank monitors, and the hydraulic steering.

The amidships master stateroom is ideally located for full beam maximization and comfortable underway snoozing. The stateroom, with king-size walk around bed has dual function with a work area to starboard with a slide-out desk, numerous cabinets and shelves, and large underbed drawers. Nightstands with drawers flank the centerline bed.
Incredible stowage with the understairway space behind cabinet doors is utilized as a walk-in closet with hanging locker and dresser. The port side of the stateroom is dedicated as the spa area and is tastefully concealed with wall-size sliding panel doors.
The separate head with washer/dryer is forward. With the sliding doors open, the visual space is enlarged; the practicality of this ensuite concept seems to becoming the prevalent layout. Behind privacy doors is the full-size glass enclosed shower with wooden bench seat and flooring insert. The closed window blinds offer privacy should a dinghy be passing by for an up close and personal peek. With the window dressings raised and the panel doors open, 3 vertical windows offer a spectacular water view on port side, and on starboard provide for idyllic viewing while performing desk duties, as well as letting copious amounts of natural lighting bathe the suite.

The flybridge has easy access to open-air cruising and covers all the requisites: safe rail heights, port and starboard gates for dinghy launching and retrieval, ease of rigging, stowage for bulky items, drink fridge, and party seating.Guardrails and pulpits in polished stainless tube with lines on snaphooks to allow the tender to be launched. The flybridge helm provides good visibility along with the station for navigation electronics, engine instrumentation, and operational controls. As well, it extends the real estate space aboard by a deck level.

The watertight aft deck hatch provides entry to the lazarette. The lazarette forward bulkhead houses the watertight entry door to the engine room, thus creating two watertight compartments below deck. The engine removal hatch in the salon is bolted watertight and soundproofed. With 4’6” engine room height, the engine room allows for maneuverability with all servicing items having easy accessibility. The height of the engine room was considered as a factor for stability, and the philosophy of Le Trawler goes against the engine room height necessitating “wedding cake” boats that require additional stabilizing systems such as active fins and flopper-stoppers.
Organization in the engine room includes grouping of systems. All water related equipment is on port side; Victron Energy System and electricals are on the aft bulkhead. Reverse cycle air conditioning and secondary diesel heating is on the starboard side. Easily accessible heavy-duty gray and blackwater extractor pumps and exhaust for main engine, wing engine, and generator are starboardside.
